The Man With One Red Shoe Review


Very Good
Richard, a hapless orchestra violinist played by A-lister-in-waiting Tom Hanks, unwittingly and unknowingly becomes a focus of governmental intrigue in this clever remake. When a deputy director at the CIA falsely identifies Richard as a man with helpful information, a rival faction at the Agency tries to infiltrate his life. While a bumbling duo of agents work surveillance, a sexy blond spy (Lori Singer) attempts to seduce Richard to get inside his head, but instead gets her hair stuck in his zipper. Meanwhile, an intelligence team led by Dabney Coleman deconstructs Richard's mundane life in a desperate attempt to decipher what he knows.

Red Shoe is a remake of the French film Le Grand Blond Avec une Chaussure Noire ("The Blond Man with One Black Shoe"), which was a commentary on the operations of the Secret Service in a country that values its privacy.

Weekend At Bernie's Review


OK
Two young insurance executives, Larry and Richard (Andrew McCarthy and Jonathan Silverman), discover that someone is stealing millions from their company. Excited about their discovery, they quickly report their findings to the head honcho, Bernie (Terry Kiser). Unfortunately for the executives, Bernie himself is the thief and cannot afford two nincompoops spoiling his riches. Thus, he invites them to spend the weekend at his summer home on an island, where he has also acquired a hit man to kill his two clueless employees.

Unfortunately for Bernie, there's a bigger price on his own head. Before the execs even arrive, somebody kills Bernie. Larry and Richard arrive at his mansion, discover the dead body, and panic. But a weekend party of tipsy bigwigs floats through before they can contact the police. Shockingly, nobody notices Bernie is dead. Richard then concocts a startling idea: "Why don't we just pretend he didn't die? Just for a bit!"
