Soft-Peddled Display of Errol Flynn's Final and Respectful Conquest

Errol Flynn, a "Larger than Life" Movie Star who Shined as Brightly as His On Screen Persona would let Him. An Adventurous and Handsome Man with Agile Abilities and a Killer Smile Who Could and Would Woo Audiences and Young Girls with Equal Ease.

His Self-Destructive Lifestyle is Legendary. In this Movie, Kevin Kline States..."I was told by a Doctor that if I didn't stop drinking and doing drugs I would be dead in six months...that was ten years ago and I have lived every day and night since, as if it would be my last."

He certainly Did. Considered a Rogue, a Womanizer, and Immature (all true), Flynn was a Likable and Fun Guy to be Around by most Accounts.

It seems that Beverly Aadland (Dakota Fanning) was Smitten and this is Their Story. The Last Two Years of Flynn's Life, totally Dedicated to Beverly, are Seen here as a Romantic Tale of Two People that are Devoted.

Sure, the Age Difference is Extreme and She is Under Age (15 but posses a birth certificate stating she's 18, acquired by her career controlling Mom played by Susan Sarandon). In the Movie Their Illicit Behavior is Shown as Respectful and Not Salacious.

It's a Little Movie about a Big Star and a Chorus Girl, Not an Unfamiliar Situation, and the Film Plays it perfectly Straight and Not Explosive.

The Good Cast is Better than the Soft-Peddled Script and Everything is Underwritten, Underplayed, and Undeserving of "My Wicked Wicked Ways" Author and Beverly Aadland.

Not an Awful Account of what happened, but perhaps Not as Good as it Might Have Been. Fiction is Stranger than Truth. After Viewing this You Might Not Think that Their Relationship was that Strange after all.

Kline didn't "de-Kline" this one, however...

...a great screenplay and cast's efforts were shredded by Susan Sarandon's pathetic portrayal of Beverly's mother. Sarandon just "phoned" this one in and simply recited the lines.

Kevin Kline, on the other hand, was marvelous. He recreated the "In Like Flynn" image to a tee.

Too bad.

Footnote-affair in the life of movie star Errol Flynn...

Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland co-wrote and co-directed this exceedingly thin dramatization of the last two years of Errol Flynn's life, from 1957 to 1959. Flynn, notorious ladies' man and faded matinée idol, picks up a pretty chorus girl on the movie lot under the pretense that she audition for him privately--unaware that she is just 15. The girl's mother is skeptical of their ensuing relationship, but eventually consents under the promise that Flynn use his connections to help further her daughter's show business career. As the underage Beverly Aadland, baby-faced Dakota Fanning doesn't have the knowing sexuality needed for the role, but Kevin Kline as Flynn is marvelous. Though essentially too old to play Flynn, who died at the age of 50, Kline nevertheless jumps into the part with verve; he has Flynn's gentlemanly cadence down right and he's in terrific shape. Susan Sarandon as Beverly's mother (and the twosome's 'chaperone' in public) is also fine, though she doesn't have much to work with. At 90 minutes, the film feels lengthy, with a colorless epilogue after Flynn has died and a final coda which isn't as heart-rending as the filmmakers probably intended. ** from ****
