Watch The Ransom of Red Chief - Alternative Versions.
I'm a big fan of Christopher Lloyd, and I really love the original short
story of this. But I'm not a really huge fan of this version (though I don't
exactly hate it either).
Christopher is very good in this (and it is the sort of role that seems
tailor-made for him). Alan Ruck makes a pretty good job with the small role
of the thankless father. And Haley does show a lot of personality and
charisma as the main kid, even if he is a bit too "soft and nice". (I swear
I saw a version with Alex Linz in the role - who is a lot more inheritantly
mischevous. Maybe I just imagined it).
What I don't like about this is that fact that a lot of the broad wit of the
original story has been severely toned down and "cutsified". I half-suspect
it's because of the mid-90s era, the time of PC and everyone in America is
expected to to be gushingly sweet to each other, and nothing bad or mean
should ever be shown of tv, or that sort of thing. The whole while feels
really tame (and cheap), and really lacks the dynamic punch that made the
original story so good.
It's alright as a cutsey family film for undiscerning kids, but it could
have been a lot funnier and more "rascally".
