Howard Hughes is of the most interesting characters in American history. Businessman, investor, pilot, filmmaker. He is responsible of bringing the airline industry to success with TWA, the ownership of the studio film studio RKO and his passion for innovation in the industry of aviation.
His life was portrayed by Leonardo Di Caprio in Martin Scorsese’s The Aviator, also Mr Hughes was shown briefly in Tucker The Man of His Dreams with Jeff Bridges, The Rocketeer,

His image is always shown as a great american history. “Rules Don’t Apply” directed by Warren Beaty represents a take of his life in the romantic comedy genre.

Frank Forbes ( Alden Ehrenreich) is one of Howard Hughes drivers, at the beginning of the movie he becomes Maria Mabrey (Lilly Collins) chauffeur, also Maria’s mom ( Annette Benign). Maria is a devout Baptist beauty queen who is been hired by Howard Hughes to become one his film stars. The film circle around the mystery of Mr Hughes personality, but also the relationship growing between Maria and Frank. Sadly Frank is already committed to his high school sweetheart.

The film becomes a love triangle between Maria, Frank and Howard, both men becomes interested in her creating several problems.

I have to say that this movie was very messy, I think I was watching an alternate version of Cafe Society with Howard Hughes. The story is really flat and you don’t understand what’s really going on. With a stelar cast appearing every minute of the movie, you cannot save the film. Rules Don’t Apply is strange, flat and becomes a unnecessary reason to watch.
