It really is a shame that films like this never snag Best Picture nominations, because this one is simply a winner. This is by far the most consistently hilarious comedy I have ever seen. Its screenplay and design are impeccable, not to mention the incredible cast. I can quote this movie for hours on end. Watch it.
Brilliant ! (by french toast)
This is one of the best comedy ever ! The writing of this parody of soap is brilliant and the cast, well just look at the names of the cast and you'll understand why it is so great. If you're a Kevin Kline fan, he does as always an fantastic performance, and Robert Downey Jr is perfect. If you don't laugh while seen this movie, you don't have any sense of humor.
This one is worth it (by tim8160)
It's funny. It's not Arthur Miller or T.S. Elliot, but man this is funny. Kline and Fields are great. Her toss-off line "God, you are so disGUSting" as she climbs in his window - great! Kline's running into the door after scoping out Teri Hatcher - great too! Robert Downey Jr. and Kathy Moriarty work together flawlessly - until he finds out who she really is... a soap opera turn if there every was one!The scene near the end in the chinese dining area had my kids and I rolling on the floor - that scene alone is worth the rental price.Doesn't solve any world problems <more>
or show the seemy underbelly of daytime T.V. I hope . Just a lot of fun.
Years ago I did follow a soap on TV. So I was curious about this movie, and I was so rewarded for finding it. It's a marvelous spoof of soaps, with jealousies, the usual actors' insecurities, and all sorts of lovely excesses. But more than anything - an amazing cast and an incredible script. How did someone get all those top-notch actors to play in such a silly sort of movie? And how did this little movie get writers to write the perfect lines? I never hear anyone talk about this movie or even admit hearing of it, but it's marvelous and I highly recommend seeing it. Sometimes <more>
I'll throw it on while doing housecleaning, and end up sitting on the couch, watching, laughing and thoroughly enjoying the whole wonderful thing. Many congrats to all who made it.
'Soapdish' is one of the best, yet least well remembered comedies of the 1990's. The film revolves around the various off-camera drama's that occur behind the scenes of a cheaply produced Daytime Soap Opera. The first of the film's various impressive strengths is it's fantastic A-List cast. 'Soapdish' features some of the greatest actors and actresses of it's era.The film is superbly led by Sally Field, as the neurotic ageing actress Celeste Talbert She famously throws a tantrum when put in a costume that makes her look like "Gloria F*CKING <more>
Swanson!" . Her supporting cast reads like a who's-who of 90's Movie Greats! Whoopi Goldberg, Robert Downey Jr, Teri Hatcher, Kevin Kline and Kathy Najimy all elevate the film greatly. Goldberg is predictably excellent, whilst Downey Jr.'s and Hatcher's performances hint at the comedic excellence they would later achieve.In terms of writing, the film is outstanding. There is a really modern edge to the script, which strays into the wonderfully bizarre on several occasions. There also several visual gags that are quite ahead of their time. In some ways, the film is reminiscent of Mel Brooks at his best and frequently reminded this reviewer of 'High Anxiety' 1977 . Much of the film's humour hinges on it's often scathing, but pretty accurate, representations of daytime television and of neurotic and pretentious actors. For example, The extras casting session featuring the exploitative executive played by Carrie Fisher, is both hilarious and honest.'Soapdish' is, for my money, one of the very best comedies Hollywood produced during the 1990's. It's excellent script and A-Class cast make it a must-see. It's hard not to love this film after it's kept you laughing for 90 minutes.
Soapdish is one of those movies that you see again & again. I have done that. It gets better every time. Sally Field stars as Celeste Talbert, the star of a daytime soap opera. Everyone involved with the show wants to get rid of her & her dirty laundry. They bring in an old costar & former flame, Jeffrey Anderson the versatile Kevin Kline , to drive her nuts & off the show. Talbert's niece, Lori, also joins the cast & that is when the suds are rinsed off. The truth about everything comes out & what ensues is nothing but hilarity. Sponge in Robert Downey, Jr as the <more>
self-loving producer David Seton Barnes, Teri Hatcher as costar Ariel, & Cathy Moriarty as Montana Moorehead & you have a bubble bath. This movie is pure fun, pure laughs & a great time. Don't miss it.
Soapdish may go down as one of the single most under-rated movies ever made.A stellar, unselfish cast who understood exactly where the movie was going and the roles they played in it. While everyone hammed it up, there was no one-upmanship. Kline showed wit and great physical comedy, Goldberg and Downey knew how to carry on a funny conversation while someone else was talking, I could just go on.Do not pass this movie by!
Have always enjoyed this film. With 1 cast exception (by CKCSWHFFAN)
I have always enjoyed this film.MOST of the cast was good in their roles.The exceptions? Shue, waste in the role. Other than being dressed like Tweety Bird. A nothing part in my opinion.AND, THE MAJOR CASTING ERROR IN THE FILM???????????.Drugs Downy Jr. EEGH!!!!! Excuse me, I had to throw up.Carrie should have been given more to do, she could have done more with the role.Whoopi was very good.Course, changing apartment numbers to you as well!! Inside joke on the little error filmmakers did here.
Very funny (by DeeNine-2)
This is a romantic comedy with the emphasis on comedy for a change. As usual the lovers--Sally Field as almost-over-the-hill soap opera queen, Celeste Talbert; and Kevin Kline as marginally employed and marginally talented actor, Jeffrey Anderson--are working at cross purposes, seemingly unaware that they are madly in love, etc. Owing a little to Bette Davis's Margo Channing in All About Eve 1950 and a whole lot to the slapstick theatrical tradition, Sally Field goes over the top towards hilarity as she malaprops her way to love and happiness. Kevin Kline, one of the more underrated <more>
leading men of recent years, is also very good and very winning as he manages to be handsome, vulnerable, egotistical and lovable all at the same time.The misadventures center around Celeste's fear of losing her audience as she has entered her forties, and reach the crisis point with the arrival of her niece, aspiring actress Cori Craven Elisabeth Shue who turns out NOT to be her niece, with ensuing plot complications. Cori manages to get a small part in the soap opera as a homeless deaf mute before discovering her true relationship to Celeste and to Jeffrey Anderson as well --but never mind.As a romantic counterpoint or foil to the leads are Robert Downey Jr. soap opera director, David Barnes and Cathy Moriarty Montana and Nurse Nan . David Barnes is oh so hot for her, but she cares only about one thing: getting rid of Celeste so that she might shine more brightly on the set. To this end she gets Barnes to do all sorts of things to wreck Celeste's career, but through happenstance and/or a perverse logic, all his attempts go awry, much to the delight of the viewer.Whoopie Goldberg plays Rose Schwartz, the show's chief writer and Celeste's alter-ego and confidant while Carrie Fisher has a modest part as the hard-as-nails producer of the show.I thought this was funnier than the only other spoof of the soap opera world that I have seen Young Doctors in Love 1982 which burlesqued TV's General Hospital and was pretty good . Soapdish is funnier with a daffy script and plenty of laugh-out-loud one-liners and terrific performances by Field, Kline and Downy, Jr. But see this for Sally Field who is outstanding.
