Camera Store (2016)


This a Covid-19 2020 minireview!

“The thing about life is… You know you’re going to be screwed. The thing that makes it interesting is… You never know how.” – Pinky Steuben

Number of Times Seen – 1 (29 Dec 2020)

Brief Synopsis – Th manager of a camera store and his employees deal with the Holiday crowd and the possibilities of changes in the way that things are done in their profession.

Bottom Line – Story that works really well due to the way that they develop these characters along the way. John Larroquette is superb in the lead role and allows us to get a real understanding of his character and motivations throughout. The supporting cast is also great and they all come across as seeming quite realistic in the way that things play out. John Rhys-Davies plays his character really well and he i able to give us such a diverse personality for his character that is different from what one might expect from him. Parts of the story are a bit too predictable, yet it still is fun to spend some time with these characters. Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Pinky Steuben, played by John Rhys-Davies, tells Pete that he performed in the musical “Kismet” in London in 1962 with Sean Connery, and reviewers thought he but not Connery was destined for stardom. While Kismet did not play in London that year and Connery was never in a performance, Rhys-Davies in one of his most loved roles did perform in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) with Connery. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
