Rating: 2/5 -- Even Williams's quick-fire routines fail to raise many laughs. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- What's fresh about Ramis and Doyle-Murray's brand of comedy is that they're not one-liner wordsmiths, they're social satirists. They find humor in the subversion of a stable social community. Full Review

Club Paradise has a few good running gags, but it isn't everything that the brochures crack it up to be. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- The whole, crowded thing begins to resemble a low-brow Nashville. Full Review

A frenetically unfunny and charmless movie. Full Review

The unchanneled energy of Robin Williams can't redeem this messy yarn. Full Review

There certainly is a lot of talent involved in Club Paradise... But most often, the level of humor is rather like that of those entertainments put on by summer campers for their own amusement. Full Review

Description by

Pretty Julie Rogers is swept off her feet by handsome stranger Danny Burke. When the girl's abusive father throws her out of the house, Danny finds her a job dancing in a nightclub. The club is owned by gorgeous tough-as-nails blonde, Irene, who hires Julie and takes her under her wing. Naive Julie falls helplessly in love with smooth-talking Danny, and risks all on their future together. But when she discovers that her lover is two-timing her all over town, there will be hell to pay!

Originally released as Sensation Hunters, Club Paradise stars handsome Robert Lowery, who is best known for his role as the Caped Crusader in the Columbia serial, Batman and Robin. Lowery had notable appearances to his credit in many fine productions including Drums Along The Mohawk (1939), The Rise And Fall Of Legs Diamond (1960) and McClintock! (1963). After transitioning to TV with a starring role in Circus Boy (1956), he worked steadily on the small screen for the next decade and a half.

Product Description:

In this crime drama, a naive, honest young woman falls for a louse who takes her to illicit gambling houses. When one of them is raided and she is there, her angry father throws her out of the house. After that her life takes a real dive until she is able to talk her way into joining a chorus-line at the night club frequented by the creepy boyfriend. Even a job doesn't stop her downward spiral and soon her boyfriend jilts her for her best friend. In the end she shoots them both. More tragedy ensues.

Missing a lot Movie Lover: from TORONTO, ON CA -- October, 1, 2017

The movie is a good film noir with a very good veteran cast. The parblem is that Alpha's version is missing 9 of the original 62 minues, including the dance numbers. The disc does include an extra - an episode of the 1950's TV series Decoy, about policewomen, starring Beverly Garland, but it doesn't make up for the cut movie.
