"Hey, Bobbo! Look up...look down...now look at Mr. Frying Pan! (BANG!)" - UHF
So, I'm looking through my old movie notes and I'm seeing that I liked a lot of movies from 1989 that were just plain dumb. I have such tremendous affection for them, but don't get me wrong: some of these are really bad movies. I'm not ashamed of loving them (well, maybe a little), but it surprises me to see so many titles in a single year that featured inept characters, gimmicky storylines, and juvenile humor. Where was my taste when I watched movies in 1989? Adding insult to injury, I believe I owned every single one of these on VHS. No wonder I didn't have many friends that year.
Take a look below at all of the comedies I've adored in 1989. Not exactly high art, am I right?
National Lampoon Christmas Vacation
See No Evil, Hear No Evil
Turner and Hooch
Weekend at Bernie's
I know Christmas Vacation holds up, but the rest? Hmm, not so sure.
