I typically do not review movies but the accents in this movie are the worst. I thought I was going to put it on, half ignore it, and write a paper for school. The accents are so bad I wound up watching it out of pure schadenfreude. I was almost crying laughing at how bad it was. No one says, "Lake Pontchartrain," calls everyone "cher," or refers to the city as "the Big Easy" on an even remotely regular basis. The best (worst) party is the failure to use the actual dialect and how Quaid's accent drifts in and out. Why wouldn't they just speak normally?!? Live and Let Die succeeded thirteen years earlier with an English production company.
The only reason I will ever watch this again is to share it with friends so we can all laugh at it.
The Big Easy
The Big Easy
Set in New Orleans. Remy McSwain, lieutenant in Homicide finds that he has two problems, the first of a series of gang killings and Ann Osborne, a beautiful attorney from the D.A.'s police corruption task force in his office. He begins a relationship with her as the killings continue only to have charges filed against him for accepting bribes as he stumbles on a police corruption Sting. While this is happening, the criminals insist that none of the crime gangs are behind the killings.
