  1. Lame and overly contrived comedy.

    Shrouded by memories of better times and better movies, Frank Gorshin and Rodney Dangerfield's final screen appearances are unfortunately in the thoroughly hapless and embarrassing comedy, Angels With Angles.
  3. An oddity as awkward as its title, Angels With Angles is writer-director-star Scott Edmund Lane's would-be valentine to old-school showbiz comics, wrapped in a silly adventure-romance involving Cuban cigars and, yes, Fidel Castro.

    Not even Gorshin's marvelously dead-on impression of Burns can save a movie that rewrites screwball comedy in the same way King Henry VIII rewrote Catholicism.

    What a great Film. So refreshing. I'm sick of these snobby critics heaping scorn on small, well intentioned movies. Gorshin is delightful andf there are many genuine emotional and touching moments. The audience I saw it with loved the film. They laughed the whole way through. Go see it for yourself. Expand
