The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek

Posted by martinteller on September 13, 2007

Sturges is hit or miss with me, and this one is definitely a miss.  All of the characters are incredibly irritating, with all the “humor” (I use the term loosely) relying on people being unbelievably obnoxious, stupid, or uptight.  It’s loaded with my comedy pet peeves… pratfalls, double-takes, scenes where everyone is yelling at each other.  But worst of all, it’s one of those movies where the entire premise is based on someone just refusing to come out and tell the truth, in a situation when it’s clearly the best thing to do.  That just drives me nuts.  The film is very admirable for the way Sturges dances around the Hayes code, but otherwise I was not amused.  Rating: 4
