Jinxed
Rated
Sweet, bosomy and rather addled chanteuse follows her gambler-lover from casino to casino in Reno as he fleeces a young blackjack dealer. In self-defense, the dealer seduces her, after which she gloriously proclaims: "I'll never walk again!" The premises are absurd, and the humor keeps flirting with, winking at or plain groping for bad taste, but the actors and director Don Siegel are so expert at refining this cheap, raw ore that they compensate for every gaucherie in the script. Jinxed is really a Midler vehicle, and her whole personality - vulnerable, goofy, horny, a little desperate, suffused with a kind of radiant, wacked-out optimism - floods the screen.
