Houseboat has very clearly survived the test of time and is today a pleasure
Everything that could go wrong in this movie, fortunately goes right and the
result is a funny, family comedy. A gem.
Cary Grant plays a lawyer, who's about to finalize his divorce when his wife
dies in an automobile accident. To prevent his three children, to whom he's
had very few contact in the last years, to be separated, by their aunt and
grandfather, he decides to take them to his small house in Washington, but
by a series of circumstances ends up living in a houseboat in the country,
that will change him forever.
Sophia Loren is Cinzia a spoiled rebel girl, who lives in the shadow of her
father, a famous maestro. To escape her dull live she poses as a poor
italian girl, abandoned by her fiancée in order to go to work as a house
keeper for Cary. What comes next, everybody knows. Love.
The story is not completely original, but it works. The script is very
funny, the dialogue interesting and well written. Even if it might follow a
formula, it still accomplishes what the audience asks, and maybe more.
Behind all the comedy and laughs, there is undoubtedly the purpose to give a
better image of what being a father is, the problems that occur when raising
children, and how to solve them without violence. We all know what violence
can do, the traumas it causes and how it haunts a person all through her
live. If all the parents followed Cinzia´s advice and tried to understand
their children instead of beating them, maybe the world would be a better
The direction is not perfect, but Melville Shavelson delivers a nice solid
performance, with some bright moments.
The best part of `Houseboat' is the cast. Cary Grant
well what can be
said? Its not his talent, but more his personality that captivates us. Who
wouldn't like to be Cary Grant? In here he follows other great performances,
bringing us a true gentleman, polite, smart and funny. He puts his heart in
his work, and is as always a pleasure to watch.
Sophia Loren. The diva, the symbol, the woman. Her beauty, in a wild, sexy
way, lights up the screen. Every frame is a masterpiece. The movie is worth
for her alone. All the rest is bonus.
Its also interesting to see Cary and Sophia act together knowing they were
involved romantically in real life and how it ended. Priceless.
The children are sweet, and work hard to do their job the best they can.
Houseboat is sweet, light, and recommended to anyone who needs to focus on
the beautiful things of life. It's sure to make you feel good.
