Soapdish [1991]

Director: Michael Hoffman
Stars: Sally Field, Kevin Kline, Robert Downey Jr., Cathy Moriarty, Elisabeth Shue
Genre: Comedy, Romance
Rating: PG-13 (Parental Guidance Suggested)
Runtime: 97 minutes

Though this movie did decent box-office business, it was never as funny as it should have been or as clever as it thought it was. The film is set behind the scenes at The Sun Also Sets, a soap opera starring Sally Field that is suffering a ratings slump. To lure the audience back, the producers resurrect a dead character, played by Kevin Kline, with whom Field was once a lover of but is now at odds (and helped exile to dinner theater, where he is first glimpsed playing Willy Loman). Written by Andrew Bergman and Robert Harling, the script has its funny moments but never manages to string them together, despite a cast that includes Whoopi Goldberg, Robert Downey Jr., Cathy Moriarty, and Carrie Fisher. --Marshall Fine
