I’m a huge fan of Marlon Brando. He was one of the best actors that ever lived but, still, after ‘Apocalypse now’, he didn’t do anything really amazing and all his movies were, at best, watchable but pretty often pure garbage, I’m afraid. This movie is supposed to be the exception though. Indeed, many viewers, including Roger Ebert himself, thought it was one fine feature and a great com... read more

After a small time crook steals all his belongings, Clark meets Carmine "Jimmy the Toucan" Sabatini, an "importer" bearing a startling resemblance to a certain cinematic godfather.

"July 30 "I'm getting too old for this nonsense." This was actually a funny movie. Marlon Brando delivers a great performance even though it's barely different from his character in The Godfather, but that was the point. I wouldn't watch this movie again, but I had fun watching it this one time."

"A great actor's self-parody might be fascinating, especially if the actor is Brando. But the performance Brando gives here is anything but a good-natured goof on himself. - Hal Hinson, Washington Post"

"Leaving the quaint environs of Vermont for the big time concrete spires of New York, film student Clark Kellogg finds himself on a journey involving a Komodo dragon, his unexpected bride-to-be and a Corleone clone. On a year that produced a pretty fair share amount of mob themed movies (Goodfellas, The Godfather Part III, The Krays, Miller's Crossing, heck, even Dick Tracy....), it seems ironically fitting that someone was able to actually convince Marlon Brando's agent to get the amply askewed "

This movie is supposed to be the exception though. Indeed, many viewers, including Roger Ebert himself, thought it was one fine feature and a great come-back for this thespian. However, I tend to respectfully disagree. I mean, Brando was indeed pretty good but the movie was rather lame if you ask me. Basically, it is one of those typical comedies where Matthew Broderick plays a clueless and spineless guy. It is rather funny that the guy got his breakthrough by portraying the coolest high-school teenager that ever lived (Ferris Bueller) but then ” read more

I regret this film. (34 movies items)

"Marlon Brando, The Freshman Brando despised The Freshman and vowed to retire from acting after finishing it, saying he was sorry to have ended his career with such "a stinker." It went on to be probably the most highly regarded and well-liked movie of his later career. Subsequently changed his mind, saying it would be "reasonable". "
