Hoping to play professional hockey, Rajvinder, along with other fellow Sikh players, instead finds himself treated as the object of ridicule, referred to as a 'joker', by mainstream Caucasian players.

He is attracted to stunning law student Melissa Winters while her brother, Dan, offers to coach Rajvinder and his team. Unable to get themselves included in any team, they form their own, and call it 'Speedy Singhs'. They then set about to make a name for themselves with a coach who is unable to pronounce their names, and assumes that they belong to the same family as all their last names are 'Singh'. The team, headed by Rajvinder, has an uphill task, challenging the reigning champions 'Hammerheads', while Rajvinder must counsel his school-going brother, Gurveer, who is being harassed for looking 'different', deal with family pressures - especially after Darvesh announces that his son has forsaken hockey once and for all. —rAjOo ([email protected])

One of the best forgotten comedies

Until Claudette Colbert utters the line, "Every Cinderella has her midnight," into the ear of her crony John Barrymore, you'll wonder as to the title of this movie. While you're wondering, though, you'll be in for a hilarious treat. This modern-day Cinderella comedy is adorable, and if you like it, check out The Palm Beach Story, which reunites Claudette and her costar Mary Astor in another comedy.

Claudette Colbert stars as a poor girl who wishes to mingle with high society. She bonds with the wealthy John Barrymore and he helps her weasel her way into the in-crowd, but her brief romance with cab driver Don Ameche threatens to ruin all her plans. Don drove Claudette in his cab, and stayed in his apartment overnight, but left before he could learn her name! When he finally tracks her down, he has two options: expose her or pretend to be her wealthy husband. . .

From start to finish, Midnight is hilarious. The comic timing is perfect, the jokes are witty, and the ending is insanely funny. One of the best forgotten comedies of the 1930s, it manages to create hilarious situations out of the absurd, while using witty banter to entertain the mind as well as the reflexes. Rent it when you're in the mood for something light and silly.

Midnight is a treat at any time

Midnight (1939) is an excellent film that showcases the talents of all of its stars: a very sassy and glamorous Claudette Colbert, a very charming and self-assured Don Ameche, the lovely Mary Astor, a small but perfectly hilarious part by Monty Woolley, and John Barrymore in what is probably my favorite role of his.

Midnight is pure romantic comedy. It's not an over-the-top screwball, but it does lean that way particularly at the chateau. The chemistry between Ameche and Colbert is excellent. Despite her plans to keep away, his determination never wavers, although his methods do.

My only disappointment is that it's a few minutes too short. The time flies and it's over in just over 90 minutes. These characters are so much fun to watch, a full 2 hours would have been okay by me. Regardless, I've seen it several times now, and with each viewing it grows on me. I also enjoy noticing the little details that add to the comedy. I highly recommend Midnight to any classic film lover. 8/10

Claudette Colbert Takes Paris By Storm

Dressed for success, penniless nightclub entertainer Claudette Colbert (as Eve Peabody) arrives in Paris. Looking for both employment and eligible men, Ms. Colbert finds her style cramped by a drenching rainstorm. To stay dry, she accepts a date with handsome taxi-driver Don Ameche (as Tibor Czerny). He invites Colbert to stay over; but, she is after finer digs, and ditches Mr. Ameche at a gas station.

Next, Colbert crashes a socialite's party, where she meets wealthy John Barrymore (as George Flammarion). To win back the attentions of wife Mary Astor (as Helen), Mr. Barrymore hires Colbert to romance Ms. Astor's handsome French lover, Francis Lederer (as Jacques Picot). Meanwhile, Ameche summons his taxi-driving pals to find Colbert, with whom he has fallen in love?

Wonderfully cast, with Colbert offering her by now typically delightful performance; like several of her other films, "Midnight" is much better than the more celebrated "Academy Award" winner. An obviously inebriated Barrymore is better than none. And, screenplay writers Charles Brackett and Billy Wilder seem to be warming up for "Ninotchka". Probably, this is director Mitchell Leisen's finest work.
