    Comments about Ritz, The:

    Lackluster film that appeals to a certain genre. While that's ok, it's laughs are forced and you feel like you're missing out on a hidden gag. Nice print doesn't make up for what I expected to be a laugh riot judging what I've been told over the years.

    Comments about Ritz, The:

    This was done at the end of star Jack Westin's career and it's a shame that he didn't do more comedies based on his turn in this movie. Special commendation to F. Murry Abramham (Amadeus)hiliariously playing a rather flamboyent queen.

      Comments about Ritz, The:

      I bought a DVD of this years ago and it has always played just fine, good picture and sound. And it has chapters. So why this issue from WB, when they could have just kept selling the old one, which I seem to remember was cheaper.

        Comments about Ritz, The:

        The hilarious comedy from 1976, which unlike many films of its day, did not change any of the story to suit the Hollywood studios. The film is basically the same play as performed on Broadway. A marvelous cast of comic actors, daring for its time, and not available for years!
