Rat Pack Reviews 1-800-PACK-RAT Reviews VideoReview: Surly Pack Rat (650b, rando, light touring, gravel)
Richtigen Spiele Grand Villa Casino Hotel. - Customer reviewsWir hatten kein Problem damit und alle Beteiligten waren dabei sehr hilfreich.
This however isn't all that bad for a two hour film. Several inaccuracies are included that the makers must have known were not true and there is way too much focus on Sinatra.
I just want to say that this movie is incredible. It makes so much now why it is hard to find. Get the dvd boys. WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!! Sadly, this one got my head spinning.
In a nutshell HBO's "The Rat Pack" is a movie more about Sinatra, Martin, Lawford, Davis Jr. Rob Cohen's film is so fast and furious that it predates what would become his box-office hit in and one has to wonder what he was thinking with a story so rushed and impatient, or better, what was writer Karno Salem was thinking.
Real life figures with a huge number of events following them, from Marilyn Monroe, Kennedy's, Hollywood and the mafia could only be told with some required patience that just miniseries can obtain.
A tv movie is destined to fail, even though the main focus was entirely the campaign and how in some ways destryed the group due to Sinatra vs.
Lawford bit. And I wonder: was Rat Pack formed really JUST to make presidential rallies? Some fun and money on the way, obviously presentd in the "Ocean's Eleven" sequence where the director was more worried about the film's result, getting the best shot than the cast were.
While the script doesn't help almost anyone it's almost impossible to accept the movie's cast with plastified versions of towering and potent figures of that golden era.
While some embody the spirit and mannerisms, others fail spectaculary to the point of being true hacks. Ray Liotta does not convince as Sinatra, it looks Henry Hill got classier since he plays Frank as an agressive fella all the time; the Kennedy's William Petersen and Zeljko Ivanek were laughable, uncharismatic and I can't comment on Lawford - though some viewers found the actor plaiying too Welsh and I wonder: was he really too much of a wimp as portrayed?
However, on a positive note Joe Mantegna as Dean Martin, and Don Cheadle as Sammy Davis Jr. They got the feeling, the rhythm and the mannerisms quite right - Mantegna's punch deliveries were hilarious all the way.
Where's the spectacle those men created in the late 's and early 's? There's no magic, just controversy and some selfish acts. The themes dealing with friendship loyalty, standing by your friend no matter what was really great - the bits between Sinatra and Davis Jr.
But what dominates the fim is JFK's concern with women and sex rather than the political game so one may wonder why he'd be a change in the game for America since he's all about wet dreams coming true.
It's more about gossip and shallow things rather than the group's accomplishments, factual things and it's all slighly enjoyable because half of the period's essence and class is there.
Weak experience with some highlights here and there. I just hope one day there'll be a miniseries about it or better people involved in the making.
Having read a fair number of books about Sinatra, Martin, The Rat Pack, and DiMaggio and Monroe, I couldn't believe how accurate even the most minor of details in the film turned out to be.
I'm thinking about things like Sinatra roughing up a newspaper reporter for writing an unflattering story, his aversion to doing a movie scene more than once, and May Britt Megan Dodds fuming over the way the guys treated Sammy Davis Jr.
It's all in there, with poignant cultural references to let the viewer know what else was going on in the entertainment world at the time, like Sinatra and Martin being tapped for the movie "Some Came Running", and the Rat Pack's involvement in "Ocean's 11".
The behind the scenes dynamic relating to the election of John F. Kennedy as President was a bonus, not to mention the more than casual interest expressed by the Mob and Sam Giancana Robert Miranda in the affairs both political and personal of the Kennedy Family and the future President.
There were only a couple scenarios I'd never heard of before, so I can't say if they were historically accurate or embellishments for the story.
One was when Sammy Davis Jr. Don Cheadle confronted his detractors as a two-fisted gunslinger to make his point about marrying a white woman, and Johnny Roselli's Joe Cortese suggestion to take out the entire Rat Pack once it was known Bobby Kennedy Zeljko Ivanek would be going after organized crime.
What's true about Sammy's prowess with guns though is legendary in Hollywood. As a quick draw artist, he was arguably the fastest there was, acknowledged even by the Duke himself, John Wayne.
And the Mafia's ties with Frank Sinatra Ray Liotta , though embarrassing for the entertainer, cannot be reasonably disputed today given all that's been revealed over the years.
That scene of Sinatra going absolutely crazy when Brother-in-Lawford Angus Macfadyen stated President Kennedy William Petersen would stay at Bing Crosby's place while in Palm Springs was of course true.
Sinatra was beside himself for days on end after that ordeal took place. Oh yeah, there was one more thing.
The scene with Sinatra and Kennedy aboard the President's yacht. Anyone else notice that there were no Secret Service agents on hand?
They could have been there unseen for the purpose of filming that sequence, but think about it. If Sinatra's relationship with The Mob was any tighter than it was, he would have had free reign to whack the President himself, and his name in the history books would have replaced that of Lee Harvey Oswald.
Isn't that a scary thought? The ONLY complaint i could make is i don't like the fake soundtrack. They could have ponied up and paid for the actual songs by frank, sammy and dean.
Also, the film portrays these guys for the most part as racist but according to valet george jacobs frank especially was anything but.
Just a product of his times, he himself an ethnic minority and the type of guy who makes fun of everything and anyone as part of his sense of humour.
Ray liotta, though he does not physically resemble frank, perfectly channels him. I watch this movie multiple times! Isaac 22 May THE RAT PACK is an entertaining made for HBO-TV movie chronicling that famous group of entertainers, led by ol' blue eyes, who ruled Hollywood and Las Vegas stages for years and made their presence felt in the political arena as well.
Whether or not the facts presented here are accurate, only the actually parties involved can say, but, according to this particular screenplay, Sinatra was a powerful Svengali who controlled and manipulated the lives and careers of Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr.
Martin is presented as a drunk who allowed Sinatra to lead him around by the nose and Davis is presented as a milquetoast who wouldn't make any move in his career or personal life without Sinatra's approval.
Lawford comes off as a doormat who was shoved to the forefront to cover Sinatra's butt in embarrassing situations.
Ray Liotta works hard, but fails to convince as Sinatra, but Joe Montegna is superb as Martin, as is Don Cheadle as Sammy Davis Jr.
Angyus McFadden is convincing as Peter Lawford and comic Bobby Slayton makes the most of the thankless role of Joey Bishop. William Petersen does a charismatic turn as JFK as does Zeljko Ivanek as RFK.
Barbara Niven also shines in a brief appearance as Marilyn Monroe. If you're looking for an accurate recounting of the activities of this notorious circle of friends, this is probably not the place to go and if you're looking for a portrait of them as fun loving innocent entertainers, you won't find that either and I can pretty much guarantee that Sinatra fans will not be enamored of the way their idol is portrayed here, but if you're looking for a glance into a group of Hollywood insiders about which a lot is unknown, it might be worth the rental.
Out of nowhere comes real entertainment! Thaat's another good surprise from the French Cable stations, not very well advertized here.
The movie was announced as LES ROIS DE LAS VEGAS, period, and the surprise couldn't be greater. Although physical resemblance was far from adequate except the perfect introduction scenes with the silhouette of the aged Sinatra , the movie was a fairly good account of the Camelot unforgettable days.
Cheadle and Mantegna serve their roles better than Liotta, mainly because everybody knows The Voice couldn't be 6'tall.
I happen to be one of the few here who remembered that Albert Maltz was one of The Hollywood Ten victims of Senator McCarthy.
The big mistake in the film seems to be the f At that time, Ava was having great fun in Madrid and elsewhere, and certainly didn't care much for Frank, Mickey, Artie or any former husband or lover of hers.
Anyhow, if you can name me another country in the world where such a film is possible, you deserve an election. Can hardly wait to see Scorsese's own movie on the subject.
I discovered Don Cheadle in this movie didn't notice him in OCEAN'S ELEVEN, , he's really fantastic. Didn't know Sammy Davis, jr.
Great editing, direction, photography, acting. I can't wait to see you again in May. Absolutely loved it. Food was great and Service was awesome too.
Date of experience: March Meridian, Mississippi 38 contributions 50 helpful votes. I didn't really like the show.
It was boring. I was actually ready to go before the show was over. I think the venue expects you to drink and you will be entertained if you do.
Maybe I expected MORE. They have a variety, which may be the downfall, of this show. There was Adele, Elvis, Michael Jackson. Those were good, but I was somewhat bored, when others such as Frank Sinatra, were on stage.
I think the show was trying to appeal to all. That means that if I would have took my grandpa, he would have liked the Frank Sinatra part and not liked the newer artists such as Adele.
I was bored a lot. BECAUSE Frankly, I'm not sure who the 3 guys are besides Frank Sinatra. Who are the other two?
I haven't got a clue! Anyhow, on to the food. I actually read the reviews before going. MAYBE that should have scared me off. I was told the food was terrible on the reviews.
The waiter informed me that if you order the vegetarian dish I should have ordered soda. I ordered the wine. It just was too strong for me! You might have a different opinion about that.
I'm a lightweight! This venue is across the street from Old Town. So, make sure you turn in directly across from Old Town. They raised our unit rent during this pandemic as their excuse was they did not have enough units.
This company has not done anything to help as we lost our home and now all our personal belongings that cannot be replaced like my Pantera memorabilia and photographs.
My kids' baby clothes and their baby stuff. It is wrong on so many levels as they realised they messed up on their end and as we found out we were not the only ones.
We would love everything back including our furniture, electronics and more. Paula, unfortunately, we have not been able to locate your order based on the information we have at this time.
I ordered a container for a long-distance move, and the pickup keeps getting delayed! I keep hearing "tomorrow" and in the meantime, I am about to close on the house!
Customer service doesn't help, just keeps talking at me, with "I apologize" and "We will prioritize" and "Unfortunately" blah blah.
Terrible experience. I contacted this company to help with my move in July They picked up the container on July 12th. They then transported the unit to my new home on August 11th.
As I opened the container all of my items were fallen over. As the items were out of the unit I noticed the majority of my items badly damaged including my bedroom furniture, tv stands, floor vase completely broken and cracked to severe damage to my other bed set.
These items were packed neatly and orderly along with blankets. They then refused to pay for my damages and blamed me for the damage.
This is completely unfair and unprofessional. The unit must have not been managed carefully. They are not taking responsibility for this, this is unjust.
No disclosures were sent to me prior to me making an informed decision to use their services. I did not receive any other documents after searching my e-mail, I would like to have a fair settlement for the damaged caused.
I am not to be blamed for this. This is not a fair and honest way to do business and treat their customer.
Also adding the claims representative refused to allow me to speak to a manager. This is completely wrong. Please help. They need to take responsibility and do what is fair to provide me with a fair settlement for my damaged items.

We listened to Bob Dylan and Peter, Paul and Mary, not Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin. A few years ago I started listening to Sinatra and was blown away by the power of his voice.
I knew nothing about his life or the rest of the Rat Pack. I'd never even heard of Joey Bishop, or much more than Peter Lawford's name. I once stayed at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas, but really had no idea of its history.
This book is a detailed, engaging lo I was born in and my parents were of the hippie persuasion. This book is a detailed, engaging look at the lives of Frank Sinatra and the group of friends who made the film Ocean's Eleven with him.
The whole cast have passed into history, but for a short time they were just about the hottest stars of the entertainment world and their collective talents were truly amazing.
The more I read, the more I kept heading over to YouTube to watch videos of their classic moments. In particular, I've developed a soft spot for Sammy Davis , Jr.
If you're already a fan, you'll enjoy the details and trivia. If you're just discovering these hip cats and their world, this book will definitely get you even more interested.
Dec 28, GoldGato rated it liked it Shelves: celebrity , biography , summer , music. The Sinatra Martini. It's vivid blue and composed of I don't know what, but it made me think of this book and how these dudes made everyday vices so electrifyingly cool.
This book has an unfortunate tendency to focus on Ol' Blue Eyes, which isn't bad as he's The Leader, but it would have been nice to get much more on his cohorts.
It's a great intro to folks discovering their style and a Vegas some of us never knew. I used spirits for medicinal purposes only.
I manufactured it for medicin The Sinatra Martini. I manufactured it for medicinal purposes only. And then I started drinking what I manufactured, and I drank myself out of a hell of a business Booze' from ROBIN AND THE SEVEN HOODS Sammy with his wicked early s suits, Dean-NO with his innate sense of wicked humor, Lawford with his wicked bizarreness, Bishop with his wicked sarcasm, and Frankie with his wicked vocal chops Dean: You'd think they'd put a little heat in this room, I'm freezing.
Frank: Take your hand out of the ice bucket. Dean: Oh. This was rather well written. Highly enjoyable. Gave me a taste of life around the times of this glorious group.
Still feel rather sorry for Peter Lawford though, poor chap. I love this book. I grew up in the era of The Ratpack and no, Frank et al didn't like that name , I loathed them, though I thought Dean Martin was OK.
They stood for everything I hated. Crass materialism, commercialism, and the worse offense being old-fashioned.
I mean, why bother with Frank when you could have Elvis and later the Beatles and the Stones? I've changed my mind since then, though I still think Frank was a prick, but an ever-fascinating one, and a musical genius.
I'm not sure when I I love this book. I'm not sure when I changed. Maybe after I rediscovered lounge music 15 years ago or so. I'd grown up with spending a lot of time in bars and resorts, and was once forced to take cha-cha lessons.
I ran from all this stuff. Ratpack Confidential is not a biography; though it contains the biographies of Frank, Dean, Sammy, Peter,and Joey entourage.
As author Shawn Levy says, it's an analysis of a place in time. And a short time it was; something that always amazes me as an historian looking back on "movements" or "eras" which had significant cultural impact.Rather, it seems to be a showcase for the Hackett family using the Rat Pack as an excuse to do so.
