... Like WILD! A silly, guilty pleasure romp; forget the acting just watch the Rat Packers have a blast. The movie is packed with stars. The score is exceptional featuring the classic "My Kind Of Town" sung by Frank the rousing "Mr. Booze,courtesy of Bing, and (my favorite moment in the film) "Class" sung by all four slicksters.Peter Falk is top notch as Sinatra's Nemisis Guy Gisborne and Victor Buono adds some funny moments as the Sheriff. After an emotional rendition of 'For He's a Jolly Good Fellow' number one gangster, Big Jim, is shot dead at his own birthday party, and Guy Gisborne (Peter Falk) takes over the mob. One song, "My Kind of Town", survives in the public memory, although I would bet that most don't remember its introduction. Frank Sinatra leads a band of hoodlums in a gang war against nasty Peter Falk. Take the Rat Pack (an expression Sinatra hated, by the way), add some great songs, a decent story, AND Bing Crosby, and what do you get? Although he's out-gunned, Robbo wants to keep his own territory. Everyone falls in line behind Guy except the do-good gangster Robbo (Frank Sinatra) who rules north side in his last go-round . Your Ticket Confirmation # is located under the header in your email that reads "Your Ticket Reservation Details". | Rating: 2/5, June 26, 2005 Then, there is the tongue-in-cheek "Style," employing the three biggest stars in show business at the time, two of them veritable legends; thirdly, the aforementioned, "Mr. Booze," is a brilliant piece of musical/theatrical chicanery. Bang!" Don't have an account? Cinemark But Big Jim's favourite man, Robbo, is having none of it, and along with his loyal North Side Crew and a drifter known as Little John, set about stopping Gisbourne and his corrupt government pals in their tracks. It's Prohibition-era Chicago, and Frank Sinatra coasts indifferently through his role as a gangster in 1928 trying to stay one step ahead of the law, aided by his faithful cronies. *1/2 from ****. ROBIN AND THE 7 HOODS (Gordon Douglas, 1964) *** 25 May 2008 | by Bunuel1976 – See all my reviews To begin with, I recall catching the opening sequence of this one as a kid on a now-defunct Sicilian TV channel Considered the best of the Rat Pack films, this is a slick, likable and witty transposition of the Robin Hood legend to gangland Chicago. Sappy semi-musical doesn't even look good! The nostagically vaudevillian number "Style", sung by Frank, Dean, and Bing, is worth the whole movie. Sinatra (as producer) knew a little something about the movie biz by 1964: just give the yokels what they want. All Critics (10) Add to that the wonderful (should have been better, but still wonderful) "Mr. Booze" number, the fabulous Peter Falk (much under-rated in this role) and Bang! Throw in Bing Crosby and Peter Faulk and have Nelson Riddle do all songs and musical arrangements, how could you not have a good time. In you add some crappy songs to Expendables 2, you would have a much better flick than Robin and the 7 Hoods. Cinemark After Chicago mob boss Big Jim is gunned down on his birthday, shifty Guy Gisborne takes control of operations. All up an enjoyable movie experience that you can watch again and again. Containing great songs courtesy of Jimmy Van Heusen and Sammy Cahn, and boasting big time stars seemingly enjoying their respective roles, it is however a picture that possibly should be far far better. A Rat Pack musical gangster film, styled after a Damon Runyon story. Scream Queen Showdown: Who Is the Ultimate Final Girl? The film's only kick comes in seeing Crosby and Sinatra reunited from "High Society", and by Peter Falk doing lively work in a dim part. Any man who loves this movie is man enough for me... Fun nonsense that manages to spin together the Robin Hood legend with a gangster musical. | Rotten (6). I am crossing my fingers that a later DVD release may someday include that song. ...no, but that might have made a more interesting picture than this. ROBIN AND THE 7 HOODS, last of the 'official' Rat Pack trilogy, was undeniably the best of the series (OCEAN'S ELEVEN, a glossy but ultimately standard 'B' movie about a Las Vegas casino heist had been filmed, between the Pack's nightclub appearances, in 1960, and SERGEANTS 3, a so-so comic Western cavalry remake of GUNGA DIN, appeared in 1963), and with tunes by the legendary Jimmy Van Heusen, it was the only film that gave it's legendary stars a chance to perform in the format best suited to them...an old-fashioned movie musical. The definitive site for Reviews, Trailers, Showtimes, and Tickets. I had just assumed it was a vanity project and nothing more. Half the characters end in in building cornerstones?! Rat Pack vehicle in which the trio Sinatra-Davis-Martin battle evil gangsters, Should have been MUCH better... but still extremely entertaining. Great music and some show stopping performances liven up what is a pretty bland story. not only allows us to see/hear all of Sammy's performing skills, but is a very clever "gangster number." | Rating: 2/5, May 29, 2004 Your AMC Ticket Confirmation# can be found in your order confirmation email. I don't want to comment on the quality of the movie, but there are only two movies in my life, that ALWAYS succeed to lighten my mood, when I am sad and down. Coming Soon. Good work from all the leads, Peter Falk in particular, as well as the many familiar charcter actors. (If they ever make "The Godfather" into a musical, I hope they include this!) Copyright © Fandango. If I remember it from television, surely the scene is still available. If U want vintage Rat Pack stuff, see either Sergeants 3 or Ocean's 11 cause this one is from a bygone day of musical comedy/crime, and those just never worked. By creating an account, you agree to the Privacy Policy August 13, 2020 Very obviously a vanity project for Frank and his pack, this feeble musical does have a couple of fine songs "My Kind Of Town", "(You've Either Got Or You Haven't Got) Style", plenty of big star names and excellent set-dressing and costumery. ... Like with songs yet! Der Bingle, Dean-o, Sammy, Peter Falk and Barbara Rush, it's like they planned it.
