[ # ] Being the Ricardos proves Oscar winners can’t play every role
October 19th, 2021 under Lucille Ball, Prime Video

Oscar winners Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem are playing Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz in Being the Ricardos. Many of us were thinking they were going to be bad. However, we would not really know until we saw the trailer.

Today, Amazon Studios released the first look, and they are not bad. They are awful. Kidman is trying to speak like an American, so her speech is slowed down. Therefore, she sounds like herself and not the legendary actress. Since we didn’t really see her in action, we don’t know if she looked like her or not. Bardem, on the other hand, looks more like Fred Flintstone than Ricky Ricardo.

I love Aaron Sorkin’s work, and I know that Lucie Arnaz praised the movie, but I think this is a colossal fail. However, a TV executive said to me today that he is going to wait to see the whole movie before he judges the performances. He is a better man than I am a woman because I think as awful a person as Ball was rumored to be, she deserves better than this.

Are you going to see it on December 20th, or would you rather watch an I Love Lucy marathon that will most likely be airing that weekend instead?
