    There is a good movie to be made about Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, the power couple of the early days of US television.Being the Ricardos is not it. Writer and director Aaron Sorkin borrows from Warren Beatty's Reds. Older characters reflect on what happened some decades earlier.The events concentrate at a time when Lucille Ball (Nicole Kidman) was going to be exposed as a communist during the McCarthy witch hunts. This could spell curtains for her hit television show I Love Lucy which attracted up to 60 million viewers.Her husband Desi Arnaz (Javier Bardem) fled Cuba because the communists targeted his family. Desi though plans to protect Lucille by making out that her alliance with the reds was an error.The film also deals with Lucille suspecting that her bandleader husband is having an affair. The pressures of making a hit television show and Lucille who is pregnant fighting the executives to incorporate her pregnancy within the show. There are even flashbacks to when Lucille and Desi courtship. A couple so busy they had to grab a few hours very early in the morning just to see each other.Despite the multiple stories. I came away thinking that this was a weak script. Sorkin tackles the sexism of the television industry. The executives are shocked that the audience at home would think these married fictional characters are having sex. There is also racism towards the Cuban Arnaz. Lucille played hardball to get her husband a part on I Love Lucy.I was bored by the McCarthyism story. It did not harm Lucille's career and I wanted to see more on the lasting legacy of Desilu productions. Shows that ranged from I Love Lucy to The Untouchables, Mission: Impossible and Star Trek. The latter two still continue in some form even today.Both Kidman and Arnaz give award worthy performances despite being actually too old for the roles they are playing.

    Either I know more about Lucille Ball and Ricky Ricardo than their children do, or their children, being investors in this film, didn't care what Aaron Sorkin wrote.Of course, there is such a thing as dramatic license - okay. However, this went above and beyond. I will cite a few things here, but by no means ALL:Ricky and Lucy didn't meet the way as shown in the film. Lucille showed up at a rehearsal to say hello to the director of whatever movie Ricky was doing, and she was a mess from her previous film, all as shown. When she came back another time, Ricky didn't realize it was the same woman. When he did, he said, "That's a hunk of woman!"Immediately before the filming of episode 68 ("The Girls Go Into Business") of I Love Lucy (which did not include fixing Fred up with a woman), Desi Arnaz, instead of his usual audience warm-up, told the audience about Lucille and her grandfather. Reusing the line he had first given to Hedda Hopper in an interview, he quipped:"The only thing red about Lucy is her hair, and even that is not legitimate."Lucille Ball was 31 when she made the Big Street at RKO, not 39. RKO had suspended her when she refused to be billed fourth in a film. Her good reviews for The Big Street brought a better offer from MGM.What was the deal with mentioning Judy Holliday? Holliday wasn't around, even on Broadway, until the mid-40s and didn't make a splash in film until circa 1949. She was no rival to Lucille Ball.Jean Arthur and Barbara Stanwyck were sought for The Big Street; Runyon insisted on Ball.Aaron Sorkin's script is a muddled mess, combining the Communist scare and little Ricky's birth, which happened in two different years. The result for me anyway is that they both got lost amid Lucy's staging of one scene in the show, which was episode 22, not 37.Also, in real life, Lucille Ball was referred to as Lucille, not Lucy.Regarding the performances, I thought Nicole Kidman had the voice and personality down flat. As far as her face being frozen, I'm not sure that much makeup was necessary. Bardem looks nothing like Arnaz, so why the pressure to have Kidman look exactly like Lucy? She had the hair, the eyes, the voice, the essence. A little less makeup would have been fine.I know people say she was miscast because they wanted a lookalike. Debra Messing would have been fine for the "I Love Lucy" part but she is not the actress that Kidman is. Bardem was excellent. J. K. Simmons and Nina Arianda were fabulous as Fred and Ethel. Actually the whole cast was excellent and totally wasted.

    When you grow up watching a couple like the Ricardos on TV, you never consider the real life things that happen in a marriage, and in the case of Lucy and Desi, there were a myriad of issues. This film opens with something I think I never heard of before, or if I did, have completely forgotten about. It involves Lucille Ball as a teenager having honored her grandfather's wish to register her affiliation with the Communist Party. That issue looms in the background as the story is built around a week's preparation for a single program of their hit show "I Love Lucy" during it's second season. From there you have a series of flashbacks that involve Lucy meeting and getting involved with the Cuban bandleader, followed by periods of tumult during their marriage. All the while you get a sense of Lucy's grasp of situational comedy and what makes people laugh, opposite Desi's business acumen in dealing with television executives and commercial sponsors. It's quite the balancing act that gives one some perspective on the mores of the day and how the show pushed the envelope on such program restrictions as a married couple sharing the same bed or having to nix the word 'pregnant' for fear that it would offend viewers. Can you even imagine something like that today when anything goes? The industry has come a long way, and sometimes not for the better.Nicole Kidman does a very fine job portraying the iconic Lucille Ball, while Javier Barden does the honors as her husband, Desi Arnaz. Quite a number of comments on this board note how Bardem doesn't look a whole lot like Arnaz, but for whatever reason, I saw quite a bit of Desi in his characterization. One thing I have to mention is how I used to cringe as a kid hearing Desi sing that horrid Babalu number, but Bardem didn't make it sound so bad. In fact, it even seemed quite entertaining. As Ethel Mertz, Nina Arianda presented a somewhat more fashionable appearance than Vivian Vance did, while J. K. Simmons seemed to be more caustic than I would have expected William Frawley to be. In character, they brought to life the next door neighbors on the program, Fred and Ethel Mertz.The movie reaches a double climax of sorts when in front of a live TV audience, Desi Arnaz fields a phone call from J. Edgar Hoover of the FBI clearing Lucy of any connection to the Communist Party. That moment of elation and triumph is quickly deflated by Lucy presenting her husband with a lipstick stained handkerchief. The band leader's speechless reaction was all she needed to know about the future of their relationship, which ended some years later in divorce. At the time, the shocking news reverberated throughout America because for all intents and purposes, the fictional Ricardos were the ideal couple living a comically charmed life. The reality though, suggests that you'll never watch an 'I Love Lucy' episode the same way again.
