I have read some of the negative comments on this film, they must havebeen written by staunch Catholics. One person said Miss Bujolds careerwas ruined by this movie if that is so it is a shame.I have watched this Movie many times. Monsignor delves into the manyaspects of human sin and how we all fai...
This movie is a smart, absorbing and different take on the Vatican,exposing the high stakes politicking and personal vanities that impactthe actions of the Church. There are no saints in this movie, only realpeople played with empathy and unusual perspective. A very youngChristopher Reeves takes on ...
***SPOILERS*** Not too convincing film about a hot shot and wellintentioned priest who gets in over his heed in trying to saved hisbeloved Catholic Church from going bankrupt.The Second World War is soon to be over and the Catholic Church hassuffered major financial losses because of it. American pr...
The tag-line for this film begins "Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned".And that's not so much being said by the protagonist of "Monsignor" but bythe director, actors, writers, best boys, gaffers, caterers and the guyswhoswept the floor afterwards on this disaster.As the "Monsignor" of the title, ...
As Christopher Reeve said himself, this movie could have been reallygood but the bad editing ruined it. And I wholeheartedly agree. It wasa pretty bold movie, even for the bold 80's: a tale of a Vatican priestwho deals with the mafia, seduces a nun and takes up arms in the war,bloodying his hands. T...
I loved this film. First, it showed very well the way the churchmanaged to survive the complicated, and oft evil, manipulations of war.It did not condemn or condone, only showed the reality of the Catholicchurch and how it's mechanisms are very much capitalist in nature ifnot in scripture. It's hist...
Someone on a game show once named this as his favorite bad movie,citing that hilarious scene in the church when Genevieve Bujold,playing a tramp postulant, realizes that her boyfriend is a priest.There's nothing good to be said about this film except that it hasglorious scenery. It's sad today to se...
It's inconceivable that a director like Frank Perry could have beenassociated with "Monsignor". Mr. Perry was a man responsible for somegood movies in the sixties and seventies. Who knows what might haveattracted him to direct this high camp picture that should be betterforgotten.The plot of the mov...
Dull and tiresome, this story should be fascinating. A corrupt priest,global shenanigans, love, lust, war. But the action seems to go on in aweird Vatican vacuum. when I first watched this years ago I assumed I'dnapped and missed huge chunks. Large numbers of years seem to Elapsewithout explanation....
The review in the annual paperback guide to movies by critic LeonardMaltin and his cronies classify this as a "camp classic", and afterreading the synopsis, I certainly wasn't prepared to take thishilarious, trashy melodrama seriously at all. It has a young, ambitiouspriest, John Flaherty (Christoph...
saw this as a sneak preview, and there was a lot of mumbling in fulltheater as reeve was cast as priest, to begin with. more mumblingensued as film went on, then laughter, and occasional comments fromcrowd. loved scenes as lines of people approached the pope, and theoverhead camera view was hysteric...
While I have some sympathy for the folks who cite this as a example ofa "good bad" movie, to be honest, I don't buy it. So Reeve felt that agood movie was left behind on the cutting room floor? He'd have hadmore of a leg upon which to stand if he didn't turn in a performance onProzac. Now granted, n...
I caught this movie the other night after seeing it many years ago. Asa Catholic, movies about the Church don't bother me, they bore me. Thisfilm is just a poor film that exploits tired clichés about the Church(the Vatican Bank is run by the Mafia, the Pope, cardinals or anyonewho works at the Vati...
If you love bad movies this rates a 10. A sad Camp Triumph for thegreat, for a while, Frank Perry the director. Christopher Reeve stifflymakes no impression, as he did in most of his non superman roles. Somegood European actors do what the can, for Genevieve Bujold all thisamounts to is stripping na...
A really bad movie essentially has to be a broken promise. You go tosee a Troma flick or something by Ed Wood, and you pretty much know theexpectations are low, and they'll be realized. On the other hand, whenyou've got a decent budget, a fairly ambitious plot, studio backing,and a cast of well-know...
I had never heard of this movie but thought I would spend the 2 hourswatching it. I was very disappointed. The acting, including ChristopherReeves was very disappointing. Many times throughout the movie thesound seemed impossible to hear clearly what was being said, so it madethe movie hard to follo...
One of the worst films ever made by big Hollywood. Sometimes it's so bad,it's funny, but not funny enough. Reeve is out of his depth, but thescriptis so bad no one could have saved it. Genevieve Bujold is a fine actressandtries gamely, but this part nearly destroyed her career. Classic scene:whenthe...
Now, I didn't rent this thinking it would be a good movie. I had heard thiswas an uproarious unintentional comedy, so that's what I was expecting.There are a few laughs to be found, but I found this movie to be a mostlydull and murky drama. Reeve is totally miscast and out of his league here,even if...
