Wake Me When the War is Over

Though just under 2 hours, this tedious talk-fest seems considerably longer due in part to lack of pace and focus. The film is of 2 minds as it attempts to blend contemporary satire with old fashioned romance which doesn't work because the romance is a wet blanket and the satire is weak. Written by Paddy Chayefsy (Marty, Network),the film is heavy on the speechifying, and Arthur Hiller's direction is devoid of any cinematic savvy. Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove, released the same year, is far more daring and accomplished and in comparison makes The Americanization of Emily feel like a film from the 1940s. Andrews and Garner are a dull pair and were considerably better in the more entertaining Blake Edwards' film Victor, Victoria.

Arthur Hiller is not William Wyler

Not the typical American romantic comedy in the WWII, here are dense and sharp dialogue, with sarcastic characters ridiculing the noble art of war and argue in favor of cowardice as a form of pacifism (something really curious) and that makes the difference with others films of the same kind and gives that movie a special value, especially in the first half... but, unfortunately... as the footage progresses it begins to drift, get lost, becomes chaotic in the worst sense (kind a screwball comedy) and repeated ad nausea, with characters talking and screaming nonstop, to say the same thing over and over again, until the very last minute, for nearly two hours, making an unnecessarily long and heavy movie. A missed opportunity to do a really ironic and brilliant film.

Thoroughly Endless Emily

Released the same year as Dr. Strangelove, Seven Days in May, Fail Safe and The Best Man, The Americanization of Emily must have seemed dull and conventional even in its day. Arthur Hiller who directed Love Story, Silver Streak, Making Love and The In-Laws is no Kubrick or Frankenheimer; he's an unimaginative, pedestrian director who fared better with The Hospital(1971)also scripted by Paddy Chayefsky which was funny and featured a spectacular performance from George C. Scott. Emily is seemingly endless, wavers in tone, and the two stars are dull together; their love scenes lack genuine passion. Garner is blank and Andrews' clipped speech leaves one chilled. A few interesting ideas and scenes are overwhelmed by a talky script and inert filmmaking. As a whole, the film doesn't compel or hold together.
