I heartily endorse this endorsement.

Tim Curry’s in the movie of Pratchett’s Colour of Magic. It was pretty good. I found the DVD for rent in a RedBox vending machine.

I liked Stop or My Mom Will Shoot. Estelle Getty is a badass.

I caught a bit of this on TV and thought it looked good, but never got around to watching the rest. I love this kind of screwball comedy, though–“The Hudsucker Proxy” is one of my favourite movies. I’ll definitely check it out.

As soon as I saw “Sylvester Stallone in a comedy” in my feed reader I thought of Oscar.

It really is a fun, charming and very clever movie well worth the time and energy you invest in watching it.

I rewatch it every 5 years or so.

Love both tis movie and the French original one.
Though seeing Sylvester Stallone and Louis de Fun├Ęs playing essentially the same part is… interesting.

How odd. I was just telling someone about this movie on Saturday.

It is remarkably good for what it is. Oh, and directed by John Landis. Well. Not necessarily guarantee of greatness, but in this case, a guarantee of amusement.

One of my favorite movies. Been to long since I’ve seen it.

Saw it in the theater and still love it as much now as I did then.

Okay, now we need a review of Richard O’Brien’s the Return of Captain Invincible.

This was fun. And yes, Hollywood just doesn’t make these kind of movies any more, and if they tried, god, it probably wouldn’t look pretty. With a post-cocaine Robin Williams. Sigh.

For those of you looking for another such wonder, my favourite farce of all time is “Noises Off”, filled with amazing performances from Michael Caine, Carol Burnett, Christopher Reeves, and John Ritter. It’s one of those movies that embody the true nature of farce: an opening act of somewhat funniness, a second act of building humour, and a third act of such unbridled hilarity as to undo one’s ability to even continue to watch.
