I've only heard bad things about this film over the years so I decided to see if it lives up to the low expectations. Needless to say, it is just as worse beyond my wildest dreams. The comedy wasn't funny, the plot is endlessly complicated and the adventure in Morocco is very ropey.

Description: Ishtar is a 1987 American action comedy film written and directed by Elaine May and produced by Warren Beatty, who co-starred with Dustin Hoffman. The story revolves around a duo of incredibly untalented American lounge singers who travel to a booking in Morocco and stumble into a four-party Cold War standoff. Shot on location in Morocco and New York City by cinematographer Vittorio Storaro, the production drew media attention before its release for substantial cost overruns on top of a lavish budget, and reports of clashes between director, producer, and cinematographer. A change in studio management at Columbia Pictures dur ... (more)

“I've only heard bad things about this film over the years so I decided to see if it lives up to the low expectations. Needless to say, it is just as worse beyond my wildest dreams. The comedy wasn't funny, the plot is endlessly complicated and the adventure in Morocco is very ropey. This was too bad because Warren Beatty and Dustin Hoffman could've generated sparks on-screen given that they're friends in real-life, but didn't liven things up because the script fails them to do so.
