The Night of the Iguana (1964)
The impressive cast of this rather tedious John Huston movie is given a challenging task to keep the narrative appealing. Dramatically, The Night of the Iguana should have been compelling and interesting, but Huston's screenplay is poorly paced and the dialogue far too theatrical. Remarkably, the movie works great on a comedic level, mainly due to Richard Burtonís brilliant performance and Ava Gardner's outlandish character. It is mainly these two that keep the movie afloat, as a lot of great dramatic potential is wasted by artificial scenes that fail to explore the characters in any sort of depth.
