BIRD ON A WIRE (Released to Theaters USA 1990)


Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì 

Bird on a Wire—Goldie Hawn and Mel Gibson film—is catchy, comical, and has its own unique style of ‘cool’ due to casting this couple together. The casting department made this movie more than it could have been. The largest fault in the movie is the stage settings chosen for its concluding scenes. Those last vital scenes, about 15 minutes or so, that clinch the audience’s ability to walk out with that sated feeling are missing in this movie. Know there are some unnecessary sex scenes that do not add anything to the story line.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Maybe. The last 15 minutes has not been well-written. The movie teeters between being a good comedy to a bad, cliched watch. Many small things could help this film be of much higher quality.
