1977 - THE CHOIRBOYS, pretty bad film from Robert Aldrich

The Choirboys is another 1970's film from Robert Aldrich who struggled to find decent films towards the end of his career. 

A very badly made film.  The Choirboys should have been the perfect Aldrich film.  The film was a mixture of black comedy and drama the perfect material for Aldrich but man oh man what he did with it was next to nothing.

The acting is horrible, the photography from the reliable Joe Biroc is very flat and looks like a TV show.  The script is completely offensive in it's treatment of women and in particular gays.  Even as a gross out Animal House type of film The Choirboys completely fails.

Stunningly terrible film making.

119 minutes.
