When the Godfather Jumped the Shark
What a goofy film Godfather part III is!
I don't mind Sofia Coppola's high-school-play quality acting. At least she is nice to look at and she did repent her cinematic sins by making great films as a director.
But a mafia hit with a helicopter? We went from "Leave the gun, take the canoli," to doors being locked with handcuffs and mafia bosses being gunned down in some scene that would be too ridiculous in a Batman movie.
Its like Coppola was confused into believing that he was making a straight to VHS Scarface sequel.
I need to get more cheap hobo wine from Giant Eagle just to finish watching this strange movie before my rental expires and I waste $2.99.
WHY FRANCIS!? WHY!?
