      Susan W I loved it! A well executed screwball comedy. Too many critics got stuck on Sylvester Stallone persona in type casting in out of type role. Comic timing of entire cast was perfect. A movie whose plot has to be closely followed to appreciate and better the second time around. Very underrated but watch with no preconceived attitude and you will not be sorry. Think Abbot and Costello 'Who's on First' but in movie length. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/03/24 Full Review Janelle S Ridiculous, tongue in cheek comedy. Imminently quotable. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/27/23 Full Review W B Worth a (re)watch. Stallone's natural sense of comedy and farce shines. Too summarily dismissed at the time by those prejudiced by the blinkers of Rocky and Rambo. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/30/23 Full Review Chris V Ignore the critics. Oscar is one of the great movies of our time. Sylvester Stallone, Marisa Tomei and Tim Curry team up for an absurd yet endearing 90's comedy that wonderfully meanders through a rickety storyline of a Depression-era mobster attempting to go straight. It's silly, and over-the-top, but will make you laugh, shelve it for a few years--maybe even a decade--then come back to it just so you can loathe yourself for enjoying it again. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/18/23 Full Review Daisy D I discovered this movie back in the late 90's. It was on a VHS tape I borrowed from a friend because it had 3 movies on it. The one I wanted to watch which was Last of the Mohicans. The second movie was Oscar, I had meant to turn it off but I had gotten busy and then it caught my attention. This movie is down right wonderful. I laughed so much and by the end I too was asking Who is Oscar? Give this movie a watch for no other reason other than it has Tim Curry in it if you need a reason. You also get to see Stallone play a much different tole than his norm. He was actually pretty good too. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/06/23 Full Review simone f A fresh good stage comedy, with an amazing director and crew. Different from he french one, but in the 30's set up works very well. Not a success at his time of course, but really to appreciate now when we are more in the "vintage set" ages. Not to be seen for those who don't like theatrical rhythm.

      Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly Rated: D+ Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Kathleen Maher Austin Chronicle Rated: 3/5 May 4, 2004 Full Review Entertainment Weekly Rated: D+ Apr 26, 1991 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) The issue with Oscar is the adoption of Magnier's French humor, an ambiance that doesn't correspond well. [Full review in Spanish] Aug 4, 2023 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible Celluloid Despite all the running around, the movie still feels slow, dragging sluggishly toward the end of its long 109 minutes.
