Quiet Teacher: Alec Baldwin Accidentally Kills Filmmaker on Set of’Rusty And Dirty’
In an attempt to kill the villainous Pre-apo actor John hooks up with a group of gladiator type people on a bus and accidentally kills them all. Things get worse when Pre-apo has visions of his past and then he tries to kill everybody in sight. The bodies are cremated and the group is put on a bus to head to the beaches.
As it turns out, they are the last people on earth and have no idea how to survive. They are thrown out of the bus and into the ocean. Things get worse when they notice sharks circling nearby and John realizes that they are headed for extinction. He then turns to his pistol which he had left behind and starts killing everyone that comes near him. You can almost hear the gears turning in his head as he counts down to zero.
The only good thing that can happen to the crew of the ‘rust‘ film happens when Pre-apo manages to ram his boat into the ocean. This results in the other ships sinking which results in John and Co. escaping the burning ship. The only bad thing that can happen is when John smashes one of the ships with his boat and injures everybody on board including Coppola’s character. He then gets taken to a location where he is killed by sharks.
Overall, this movie isn’t exactly a great comedy
It has its moments, but the storyline and acting are very poor. There is very little humor throughout the entire movie. It doesn’t help that some of the fighting scenes are horrendous.
In a nutshell, this movie is not for everybody. However, if you are a big fan of Hamm’s comedic acting, you will love this movie. Otherwise, you will probably leave the theater irritated and wishing that more action had been added to the screenplay. Luckily enough, it comes highly recommended.
In fact, Coppola decides to adapt the book of the same name that was written by another author, Robert Towne, in the hopes that it will be as successful as the first “French novel.” She then goes on to make three more movies based on the same story. While they are not nearly as good as the first two, they do still make decent movies that have charming characters and a fast pace. So despite the poor plot, the acting, and the atrocious special effects, this movie is a success overall.
One scene in particular will astound you
After having just murdered another character in the first place, John arrives at the spot where Coppola’s character was killed to find a cop committing suicide with a gun he pulled from his belt. I would say that most of the scene took place off camera because it was supposed to be humorous, but even if that were the case, the director should have at least asked the actors to wear costumes. The dialogue would have been difficult to follow if they weren’t already in character.
Overall, this is a enjoyable film that leaves you wanting more of the same from Coppola. It’s worth giving the movie a chance if you like Coppola’s other films, especially “Mild High Fiend.” But if you’re not a fan of her, don’t worry. There’s nothing offensive or even memorable about this film. In fact, seeing the scenes with Baldwin at the Academy Awards is enough to make you miss him on “The Godfather” and “Goodfellas,” so I suggest you watch this one when you happen to miss either of those films.
