The Godfather (guest)

January 10, 2010 at 9:08 pm 2 comments

MOVIE: Godfather

GUEST: Farmer Guy

NUTSHELL: Nice Mediterranean man starts an olive oil firm in New York. Then his son kills everyone.

GOOD THINGS: Sonny making Andy Garcia, dining with the police, Moe Green winking, Enzo the baker, Sonny in the exact change lane, sleepy horseys, Luca Brasi practicing his lines, Boo Radley making it through law school

BAD THINGS: That Michael could be so mean

FEATURES: Skirt chasing singer Johnny Fontaine gets don-pushed movie part, just like skirt-chasing Frank Sinatra got the don-pushed lead in Kelly’s Heroes. And Frank stood up for the Italians in that one.

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS: I was 12 when I conned my grandfather into taking me to a “cops and robbers” movie called The Godfather. Newly betrothed Appollonia was no Broderick Crawford.

NOTABLE: Freddo reprises his role in The Deer Hunter.

BEST PART: Baptism-performing priest is nice enough to periodically pause for a series of bloody murders.

BEST LINE: I believe in America.

CROWNS: 5 out of 5 canolis
