I really enjoyed this movie. I thought that it unfolded simply yet precisely before the audience and kept them wondering right up till then end. I think that this film may be considered a classic for several reasons; the actors and actresses playing the main characters, at least from what I know, were extremely popular, the themes of the film were that of good overcoming evil and good character, even in shady situations, always surfacing. I also think that this film is considered a classic because it genuinely is entertaining, and it was produce in a very intense time for the world. It caught a lot of people’s attention and I think could have served as a motivating factor for patriotic acts.
My favorite character for obvious reasons was Rick, but I really enjoyed the character Sam. I don’t know why but every time I saw him on screen I was drawn to him. His facial expressions in some of the scenes were priceless. I think characters such as Sam, as well as many others, really contributed to the film.
. This film was full of, and I think I missed a lot of it, humor. I continuously found myself chuckling throughout. I think that the humor itself was one of the biggest things that stood out to me. Overall I would agree that this movie is a great classic and I would recommend it to anyone, ranking it just as high or higher then any modern show.


  1. I agree- the humor was key AND all of Rick's sarcasm man had me laughing outloud. I wanna be Rick for a day just for a day though, because I may lose friends after that! lol

  2. Yeah, not very into the modern stories for some reason, but these old flicks we're watching are actually good, maybe better than some of the movies out today. I may have to start purchasing some on ITunes....

  3. yep jason, and again, it's the writing. back in the day, story and novel writers wrote a lot of the movie screenplays. did you know william faulkner wrote for Hollywood? the quality of the writing comes through. jocef is so right, the sardonic and witty quality of the dialogue slays me!

    joe, i think Sam is such a great character too. he added so much humor and let's not forget music to the film. that song "as time goes by" is almost as famous now as the movie!

  4. i agree jocef, it would be awesome to be rick for one day. "i aint sticking my neck out for anybody" he is the perfect smartass

  5. I agree Joe! I really didn't think I would like it at first, but after watching it all the way through helped change my opinion! I really do think the humor in this movie is great! I think there is probably more humor within that just what we see, just because we are in different times. I would definitely like to see this movie again sometime soon!
