Movie Review by AJ
April 14th, 2006

I had to wait so long to see this because it has amazingly never been released on DVD. So imagine my surprise when I found an old VHS copy at my library. And let me tell you...the wait was more than worth it! The African Queen is a delightful adventure from the always-great Huston (well, besides Beat the Devil and The Unforgiven) with great performances by Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn. Luckily for the two stars, this one little film is not too big for the both of them and their equally mega-watt brilliance. They have great chemistry together, and keep the film anchored during times when anyone else would've gone a little too over-the-top or taken things a little too seriously. It's a classic: Exciting, dramatic, funny, and with some very fine romance. It pretty much defines the proverbial movie that "has it all"...'cuz it sorta does.
