sloppy, not cool

Good idea, deadly execution. By the time this film was released, the rat pack was passed it's prime, with it's members lending new depth to the term "laid back". Falk lays it on to thick, and the rest just lay around. The Rush character should have been written out, entirely, and Davis' Steppin Fetchit routine should have been edited out... this passed muster in 1966? All in all a terrible way to go out... and waiting almost two hours for Sinatra to wake up and sing is asking too much.
the twilight of the main stays known as the rat pack.

Hands down (or should that be hoods down?) the least good of the three rat pack films
No, this isn't one of the "greatest" films ever but it is certainly one of the ones that's the most fun. You've got Sinatra singing great songs by Heusen and Sammy Cahn. You've got Peter Falk, Guy Gisborne (a nod to Basil Rathbone's same named character in "The Adventures of Robin Hood") holding forth in a hilarious "democratic" election among a gang. You've got Dean Martin, in one of the best scenes in the film, singing "Any Man Who Loves His Mother' while clearing a pool table with trick shots. You've got the funniest funeral scene ever filmed and it's Edward G. Robinson who is being buried! Everyone on-screen is having so much fun and they simply invite you to do the same. It's great viewing for a rainy afternoon or evening and, oh, have fun! btw: NOT for children!

WOW! Why didn't Sammy Davis just give Sinatra a spit shine. Davis looks and is a token black for Sinatra's bidding! This is so phony, with the exception of Davis acting like Sinatra's butler. I thought Hollywood outlawed slavery?
Robin and the 7 Hoods
This is one of my all time favorite movies. It really does help if you love the Rat Pack and Bing Crosby, which I always have, but I first saw it before I knew them, when I was young. The amount of fun it looks like these guys are having and the energy they put out is infectious. I always like the music of Jimmy VanHeusen and the tap dance scene with Sammy Davis Jr still blows me away!
Robin and the Seven Hoods
Gordon Douglas put together a dynamic cast in a splendid vehicle and Frank Sinatra performs his songs in one of his best turns similar to his song in "A Hole in the Head" in 1959 by the great talent Frank Capra.
Robin and the Seven Hoods
Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack literally go out with a bang in an amusing musical the has elements of the ancient Robin Hood legend mixed in with a satire of early 1930's gangster films with a Chicago setting to boot. Robbo (Sinatra) is both amazed and amused to learn that he is something of a hero by inadvertently doing charity work despite accusations from rival Peter Falk to the contrary.
It's a gasser!!!

Great songs! Great fun! This is one to sit back and just enjoy. These guys are having fun, you will too!
