Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Tom Wiener
Arguably Dusan Makavejev's most accessible and entertaining film, The Coca-Cola Kid is a genial comedy with a rare light performance by Eric Roberts, whose subsequent roles devolved largely into villains and psychotics. Makavejev plays off Roberts' clenched line readings to suggest that here is a man who just needs a little loosening up, and he'll be okay. In fact, Roberts' Becker is a distant cousin to Susan Anspach's uptight American in Makavejev's most popular film, Montenegro. The Coca-Cola Kid also pokes fun at the Australians, too; if Becker is wound a bit too tight, they're shown as making a fetish out of being laid-back. Their "no worries mate" philosophy does begin to loosen up Becker, and it helps to have a sexy woman (Greta Scacchi in her second important film after a stunning debut in Heat and Dust) as the bait. The film may not be as textured and consistently entertaining as Local Hero, but it's got fizz enough.
