      To be honest, I didn't love every second of it.
      I saw it for the first time yesterday, not having seen the original one. The first half was a long one to sit through. It wasn't bad, but on its own, it really isn't that good either, but the second half.... OH MY GOSH IT IS SO INSANELY GOOD!!!! It even makes the first half good in hindsight, knowing that it's all meant to build up to that second half

    I think this number was the one where the improvement from the 1961 version was biggest. In the 1961 version, I was like, "Oh, that was cute." In this one, I was half-laughing and half-crying throughout the whole song. It's even more powerful when you think about the fact that 60 years later, the lyrics are just as raw and relevant about how bad American society is at dealing with kids once they get anywhere inside "the system."

    I love the ingenious choreography of this scene in the movie. A simple office is turned into an incredible stage. It feels so natural, like the boys really are making every move up as they go. But the inventiveness put into creating this scene is pure genius.

    This Scene was so fun and fluid, I had to remind myself this was Spielberg’s first musical and I think he needs to do more. I wouldn’t mind if he did a new take on Singin’ In The Rain.

      Singing in the rain needs no improvement. It was a classic with the beat dancer of any generation: gene Kelley. West side story is a musical that’s great no matter how many times it’s done on Broadway but no one could ever live up to gene or tbh the way he and Donald o Conner play so well off each other

      @mark troiano This is honestly a better adaptation as Spielberg and Kushner made it so that its much more faithful to the original 1957 musical. The only thing that you could say is "weird" is that they didn't fully use Jerome Robbin's choreography for the dance sequences(though they used some parts of it for nostalgic purposes)

    Beyond the ethnic prejuduce, West Side story points out the failure of the community to care for its children. If we really listen to this song, in particular, we hear how the system failed these kids. They label them as delinquents, criminals, psycho, lazy, and sick. They're passed from one "professional" to another. Not one of the adults has stopped to actually show genuine interest in them rather each passes the buck. If they stopped long enough they'd hear how the problems start at home within the family.

    • Jaysa Hunter

      @Hannah Monteiro It's like a game of hot potato. No one wants to deal with the teen long enough to get him the help he needs and then act all surprised when the teen eventually blows up.

    • Jaysa Hunter
      Jaysa Hunter Month ago +1

      @Hannah Monteiro That's not all they can do though. That's just all they do, which is the problem. The social worker doesn't suggest work bc the teen needs to work themselves out of their environment. That's literally the social worker's job. The point of the teen getting a job is to build character and give the teen something to do besides gangbanging. The social worker is the one thats supposed to pull them out of that environment. CPS rarely works the way it's supposed to. Or rather, it works exactly the way it's supposed to, which is against impoverished youth. Most teens know this, they arent stupid. They know the government doesn't really want to help them, which is why they reject it. We cant really be surprised the the social worker's half-assed attempt to help doesnt inspire the most confidence in the teen. The system fails its kids, period. This song illustrates that wonderfully

    • Hannah Monteiro
      Hannah Monteiro Month ago

      @Jaysa Hunter Ever thought that, maybe, just *maybe* , the teens are hearing the same thing over and over again because it *is* the solution to their problem, even if they don't like it? And then you blame the social worker for the fact that these teens reject that solution as soon as they hear the word "work"?
      The social worker realizes that, in order for the teen to make something out of his life, he needs to get out of this sh*thole environment first. And for that, the teen needs cash. Cash means work. However, since the teen (most likely) never finished school and has no marketable skills, the only available jobs are low-end ones, like soda jerker, fast food worker or dockyard/warehouse worker. I cannot really blame the teen for rejecting a job that's tough work for little pay, but then again, what is he waiting for?

    • Hannah Monteiro
      Hannah Monteiro Month ago +1

      @Jaysa Hunter *"Half the problem is the teens not being willing to cooperate and the other half is social workers not doing their jobs properly."* The teens not willing to cooperate is not only half the problem, it is the *entire* problem. "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink." All the social worker can do is to suggest the solution and talk it up. You can't blame the social worker for the teen rejecting that solution because it'd involve work (which the teen does not like ("...I'm only anti-work...").
      As I see it, the teens will only have themselves to blame when they get too old for the "still half a kid" bonus and get tossed in the slammer with a gobsmacked expression on their faces ("What, no shrink this time? Awesome! ...wait, what do you mean, jail?! What's going on here?!").

    • Jaysa Hunter
      Jaysa Hunter Month ago +5

      @Hannah Monteiro The reason the teen mock the social worker is because they've lost all faith in the system that's failed them time and time again. They're sick of hearing the same damn thing over and over which is why they make fun of it.

    I can't stop listening to this soundtrack. Whenever I'm going out somewhere with my family I always play this. America and Gee, Officer Krupke are my favourite. As a Latina, I love this film. Steven Spielberg once again making an amazing film, that anyone enjoys. Well deserved Oscar for Anita. My dream is to be an actress. Steven Spielberg's films always had made me want to be an actress.

  • Phillipe Battini

    DEFINITELY THE BEST SCENE OF THE MOVIE. I dare say Spielberg improved it a lot!

  • ChikaChika
    ChikaChika 4 months ago +45

    Spielberg was able to make this one of the most impactful and inciteful songs in West Side Story. Officer Krupke previously said that he was on the Jets side. But when the new member was going to break, and needed someone to take him under their wing. Meaning if Krupke were there he would've been able to tell him that it was an accident, maybe get through to him, and have him give up the gang life before he gets in too deep. But he wasn't there.
    (Also, the other gang members couldn't even pronounce Krupkes name correctly to further emphasize how little respect they have for him and for authority as a whole.)
    Instead the boy was surrounded by his fellow gang members who told him all of the possible charges he would be facing, and what to say to beat the system. I hadn't seen the original version in a while but this version...I was really rooting for the boy and was so disappointed when he became just like the rest of them. (For the record he sings the soda jerker line.)
    What is also interesting to note is how the Jets talk about how every adult in their life has given up on them. Yet Doc, and his wife have always been there for them. Willing to give members jobs so they don't break probation, offer advice, and be that support. They just can't see it.
    Btw I asked my PR dad about the nail scene at the beginning of the movie there is an old Hispanic tradition of scarring the daughter so she doesn't get too prideful about being more beautiful than her mother. She is to remain dutiful. When the guys pricked his ear with a nail, it signaled to the audience that the boy should go home and be a dutiful son to his mother instead of having his ego inflated by gang tensions.

    Dear kindly Sergeant Krupke
    You gotta understand
    It's just my bringin' up-ke
    That gets me out of hand
    My mother is a junky
    My father is a drunk
    Golly Moses, natcherly I'm a punk!
    Gee, Officer Krupke, I'm very upset
    I never had the love that ev'ry child oughta get
    I ain't no delinquent
    I'm misunderstood
    Deep down inside me, there is good!
    There is good!
    There is good, there is good
    There is untapped good
    Like inside the worst of me is good
    That's a very touchin' story
    I wanna tell it to the world!
    Just tell it to the judge
    Dear kindly Judge, your Honor
    My parents treat me rough
    With all their marijuana
    They won't give me a puff
    They didn't wanna have me
    But somehow I was had
    Leapin' lizards, that's why I'm so bad! Right!
    Officer Krupke, you're really a square
    This boy don't need a judge, he needs an analyst's care!
    It's just his neurosis that oughta be cleaned
    He's psychologically disturbed!
    I'm disturbed!
    I'm disturbed, I'm disturbed
    I'm the most disturbed
    Like I'm psychologically disturbed
    It's the opinion of this court
    That this child is depraved on the account he ain't had a normal home
    Hey, I'm depraved on account of I'm deprived
    So take him to a headshrinker
    My father is a bastard
    My ma's an S.O.B.
    My grandpa's always plastered
    My grandma pushes tea
    My sister wears a mustache
    My brother wears a dress
    Goodness gracious, that's why I'm a mess! Yes!
    Officer Krupke, you're really a slob
    This boy don't need a doctor, just a good honest job
    Society's played him a terrible trick
    And sociologically he's sick!
    I am sick!
    I am sick, I am sick
    I am sick, sick, sick
    Like I'm sociologically sick!
    It is my humble opinion
    That this child does not need to have his head shrunk at all
    Juvenile delinquency is nothing more than a social disease
    Hey, I got a social disease!
    So take him to a social worker!
    Dear kindly social worker
    They say go earn a buck
    Like be a soda jerker
    Which means like be a schmuck
    It's not I'm anti-social
    I'm only anti-work
    Gloryosky, that's why I'm a jerk! Eek!
    Officer Krupke, you've done it again
    This boy don't need a job, he needs a year in the pen
    This isn't a question of misunderstood
    Deep down inside him, he's no good!
    I'm no good!
    I'm no good, I'm no good!
    I'm no earthly good
    Like the best of me is no damn good!
    The trouble is he's lazy
    The trouble is he drinks
    The trouble is he's crazy
    The trouble is he stinks
    The trouble is he's growing
    The trouble is he's grown
    Krupke, I've got troubles of my own!
    Gee, Officer Krupke
    I'm down on my knees
    'Cause no one wants a fellow with a social disease
    Gee, Officer Krupke
    What am I to do?
    Gee, Officer Krupke
    Krup you

      Spielberg and the rest of the creative team did a really good job keeping the racism within the story where it belongs (I think they amped it up a little) and not spreading it like the brownfaace makeup on the Sharks in 1961.

    Actually, this is kind of a sad song. It's like they are proud of being no-goods, because that's who they are. It's how they got labeled, and they own it. They don't want to change it, they want to be with their friends, having a different opinion would make them an outsider. And, they all come from bad families, so having fun and doing things togther is better than facing reality. Their lifes suck, and they make it less sucking with pushing it away and making fun of it and themselves.

    • BucyKalman

      In the original 1957 Broadway version, Riff did not sing this song either, because this song took place after the rumble. The 1961 film placed it before the rumble, censored some lyrics, and gave Riff the lead vocals. The 2021 version takes place in the police station, is placed before the Rumble like the 1961 film, but does not feature Riff like the 1957 Original Broadway Version and features the original uncensored lyrics.

    Oh, that's a touching good story
    Let me tell it to the world!
    Just tell it to the judge
    Dear kindly Judge, your Honor
    My parents treat me rough
    With all their marijuana
    They won't give me a puff
    They didn't wanna have me
    But somehow I was had
    Leapin' lizards, that's why I'm so bad!
    Right!
    Officer Krupke, you're really a square
    This boy don't need a judge, he needs an analyst's care!
    It's just his neurosis that oughta be curbed
    He's psychologically disturbed!
    I'm disturbed!
    We're disturbed, we're disturbed
    We're the most disturbed
    Like we're psychologically disturbed
    Ye, ye hear ye
    In the opinion on this court
    The boy's depraved on account he ain't had a normal home
    Hey, I'm depraved on account I'm deprived!
    My father is a bastard
    My ma's an S.O.B.
    My grandpa's always plastered
    My grandma pushes tea
    My sister wears a mustache
    My brother wears a dress
    Goodness gracious, that's why I'm a mess!
    Yes!
    Officer Krupke, you're really a slob
    This boy don't need a doctor, just a good honest job
    Society's played him a terrible trick
    And sociologically he's sick!
    I am sick!
    We are sick, we are sick
    We are sick, sick, sick
    Like we're sociologically sick!
    In my professional opinion
    What we've got here is a run-of-the-mill juvenile delinquent
    And juvenile delinquency is a social disease
    He's got a social disease?
    Bring him to a social worker
    Wait, can I catch it by catching him?
    Dear kindly social worker
    They say go earn a buck
    Like be a soda jerker
    Which means like be a schmuck
    It's not I'm anti-social
    I'm only anti-work
    Gloryosky, that's why I'm a jerk!
    Eek!
    Officer Krupke, you've done it again
    This boy don't need a job, he needs a year in the pen
    It ain't just a question of misunderstood
    Deep down inside him, he's no good!
    I'm no good!
    We're no good, we're no good!
    We're no earthly good
    Like the best of us is no damn good!
    The trouble is he's crazy
    The trouble is he drinks
    The trouble is he's lazy
    The trouble is he stinks
    The trouble is he's growing
    The trouble is he's grown
    Krupke, we got troubles of our own!
    Gee, Officer Krupke
    We're down on our knees
    'Cause no one wants a fellow with a social disease
    Gee, Officer Krupke
    What are we to do?
    Gee, Officer Krupke
    Krup you!

    When they spin Baby John around on the table at the end of the song, the actor playing Baby John’s smile is infectious. He’s having the time of his life and you can tell he’s bonded with the other actors in this scene.

      In the original 1957 Broadway version, Riff did not sing this song, because this song took place after the rumble. The 1961 film placed it before the rumble, censored some lyrics, and gave Riff the lead vocals. The 2021 version takes place in the police station, is placed before the Rumble like the 1961 film, but does not feature Riff like the 1957 Original Broadway Version and features the original uncensored lyrics.

      This scene and the ending are the two parts I didn’t like. The 1961 version had the kids hanging out and playing around during this song. The setting for the new one was so off. Krupke leaves them alone in the room? They tear up a police station and then… walk away? In this version they came of bitter and cynical. In 61, they seemed to be laughing at their lot in life. This version didn’t endear me to the jets like the 61 version.

    I will say, Iiked the original version of the song more. I don't mind the updated lyrics cause they've been used for years, but the slower pace and more mellow delivery kinda ruined the song for me.
    The line delivery MADE the song for me and changing what was fundamental to me, just wasn't my forte. I lived off of the devastated, "I'M NO GOOD!" and the thick accented "I'm disturbed!"
    Maybe I'm just nit picking but Gee Officer Krupke was my favorite song...so...

      Those are the original lyrics from the 1957 Broadway play (the 1961 movie toned it down a bit, but kept the marijuana line). As for it being on a Disney channel? And? Disney produces and distributes PG-13 movies under its name, which Westside Story is rated. And, since the mid-1980’s, Disney has even produced and distributed R-rated movies under its subsidiaries. In short, the song’s lyrics are no secret, and parents should monitor what their kids watch on the internet, if this type of content worries them.
