Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
TILLIE AND GUS
Dir: Francis Martin
W.C. Fields and Alison Skipworth are perfectly paired as con-artists who come to the aid of their niece when a crooked lawyer tries to steal her inheritance. Whether trying to fix a ferry race or attempting to mix paint, Fields is in hilarious form in this underrated gem, which introduced the Great Man to pint-sized nemesis Baby LeRoy.
Put-upon family man Marcus (Martin Lawrence) and swinging bachelor Mike (Will Smith) are Miami police detectives who must not only track down a huge cache of heroin stolen from their station’s evidence room but also convince Julie (Tea Leoni), the only witness to their friend’s murder, to testify. A rip-roaringly profane action comedy, with a brilliantly depraved Tcheky Karyo as the duo’s twisted nemesis.
