Ratboy Reviews:

"Ratboy" is not a nice film by any means. The freakish protagonist (despite the movie´s theme song) lacks personality. In fact, he´s disgusting in each way. The script is incredibly lame without being funny. As can be expected of a Sondra Locke movie, it is just as bland as her cutesy modern cowboy farces with Clint Eastwood. The plot is all over the place. In spite of all these flaws, though, the movie is so special that it´s fascinating. It cute much gives the message that creatures do not necessarily have to have a hidden beauty and are greatest left alone. The plot concerns a reporter called Nicky (Locke) finding a rat-human hybrid called Eugene and adopting him while seeing him as nothing more than a news storyline that would dramatically improve her career. Her human associates don´t treat him much better. In spite of this, Eugene falls in love with Nicky (which is never particularly sad or funny). She does not love him back but is torn between exploiting him and feeling sorry for him. There are some crime similar subplots too and Christopher Hewitt from "Mr. Belvedere" makes some appearances testing (surprise) a snooty British guy. This plot keeps the viewer interested if nothing else but only because it is so weird that anyone would wonder what will happen next. Basically, what´s nice about the film is that folks with nice sense would never have made it but Locke and company went ahead and made it anyway ! Therefore, "Ratboy" is each bit as punk as the Sex Pistols´ first album. Its audacity is remarkable.


When Clint Eastwood and Sondra Locke were still an item, Eastwood helped Locke create her directorial debut with this film through his production company Malpaso. Though Eastwood has typically shown a nice batting average when picking projects, this film joins efforts like "Pink Cadillac" that have you thinking, "What were you thinking, Clint?" Actually, much of the failure of "Ratboy" falls on Locke's shoulders. The first mistake she made was casting herself in the movie; Locke has never been a nice actress, and this film is no exception. As for her direction, the film is a mess. Sometimes it's serious in tone, sometimes it's satirical, and sometimes its tone is downright farce. The film never finds a consistent tone, so it's difficult to receive involved with what's happening. It also doesn't support that the characters' actions are more often than not unbelievable, even when the film tries to be serious. And while the game hero can speak, there is surprisingly tiny effort to receive into his head and learn what he's thinking or feeling.In fairness to Locke, some of the mess was probably not her fault. The story, either through an inadequately written screenplay or (more likely) being hacked up in the editing room, has a number of moments where it's clear that certain plot features are blatantly missing. There are plot threads that seem to begin in midstream, or are never resolved at all. What all this effects in is a true mess of a movie, and it's simple to see why Warner Brothers barely released it to theaters.


First, let's receive off our high horses and stop ragging the film like it's infested with the plague. Okay? It's a movie, a special movie, about exploitation. Okay, the main hero is a rat ... or is it human? ... or whatever. The fact is that this film teaches us to be more sensitive to those who are different, in this case, REALLY different, even if this film stretches the message a bit far. I know that it's difficult to empathize with hero that's a rodent, but Ratboy is a LOVABLE rodent, so why not leave it at that? At the party in the movie, Ratboy seems perfectly in place, nobody was avoiding him (I presume he didn't have fleas), which proves that when we wish to we can agree those who are different. One criticism of this film is that Ratboy is so trusting and naive that perhaps it would have been better if the film had been about, let's say, a gerbil or a rabbit, and not a rat. Also, the film fails to address certain obvious questions, like where Ratboy came from and how he is able to talk, but such considerations would probably take this film in a direction that would undermine the movie's essential charm. For "Ratboy" is a charming film and Ms. Locke is excellent as the lady who is orchestrating everything. Even though Ratboy is exploited, nobody wants to harm him and everyone now likes him. It's a special and unpretentious film which, if agreed on its own terms, is watchable and will not disappoint. But if you watch this film expecting to experience some type of Shakespearean classic, then either you have been grossly misinformed or someone is trying to enjoy a joke on you.
