CGiii Comment

A compilation of legendary names - in what can only be described as an uninventive, concocted and convoluted piece of ham.

Williams has not stood the test of time - even when adapted and diluted for the screen.

Huston's direction is zero - point and shoot.

And...what's with the ridiculous maracas players?

A total nonsense from start to finish.

The(ir) Blurb...

The Rev. T. Lawrence Shannon has been living in Mexico for two years, working as a tourist guide for a cut-rate travel agency. Shannon lost his church and was defrocked after taking liberties with one of his parishioners. He's now accompanying a group of middle-aged ladies from Texas whose leader, Judith Fellowes, is keeping a close eye on her teenage ward, Charlotte Goodall, who definitely has an interest in the former priest. After Charlotte and Shannon spend the night together, Fellowes is out to have him fired and to keep her from communicating with his employer, Shannon strands them at a remote hotel run by his good friend Maxine Faulk. It's the arrival of Hannah Jelkes and her elderly grandfather that has the greatest impact however. Her approach to life and love forces Shannon to deal with his demons and re-evaluate his life.
