Entertainment Review
This article comments on the film "The Court Jester." It may very well be that the film has so much of everything--and so little as well--because of Hollywood's desire, which is more intense than it has ever been, to please everyone by providing everything, no matter what the disorder and weakening of the entire effect. There is a dear desire in the film to please the small shots of the kindergarten set far more than the adolescents who have come to neck in the darkness of the balcony and who were supposed to be a major part of the film audience, the age group to which, for the past 10 years, Hollywood has decided to direct its efforts.
