The Three Musketeers
release year:1973 genre:comedy/adventure viewing setting:home DVD, 5/11/99 what I expected:wasn't sure what I got:fairly funny comedic entertainment
synopsis:Those wacky musketeers are at it again, having adventures and saving the Queen's dignity in the face of the evil Cardinal.
impressions:This was a VERY light-hearted romp...it had swordfights, duels, mass battles, and all that, but the tone was light and hardly anyone died. In fact, this felt more like a pilot for a TV series. There was a good deal of comedy, too.
acting:Oliver Reed was the funniest, overall. Raquel Welch was easy on the eyes.
the good:humor, action
the bad:maybe slightly too flippant
final word:worthwhile adventure viewing, suitable for kids
