Just the facts ma'am.

A classic comedy and crime caper starring Tom Hanks and Dan Aykroyd as a pioneering dysfunctional cop partnership. Relatively unheard of as far as I'm aware, this film was brought to my attention by a friend of mine who had obviously only bought it because of the cast listing, but I'm glad he did.

The extremely articulate and precise Joe Friday is a cop who does everything by the b... read more

I wasn't sure what to expect from this flick but since it was one of the few movies starring Tom Hanks I hadn't seen yet, I thought I should give it a try anyway. It was rather fun to see Hanks when is my young and it is one of his typical 80's comedies he made before becoming a 'serious' actor. Honestly, I didn't really like it. First of al, I have never seen the original TV show but I have under... read more

100 Great 'Fun' 80s Movies (100 movies items)

"Although it was a critical and commercial flop, 'I've always loved Tom Mankiewicz's 'Dragnet', the spoof of/homage to the 50s cop show of the same name. Mankiewicz, the son of the legendary Joseph L. Mankiewicz who wrote and directed classic films such as 'All About Eve' and 'A Letter to Three Wives', does not attempt to live up to his father's verbose legacy, instead throwing himself headlong into a joyously silly parody. Daft but largely clinging to a form of reality eschewed by the classic sp"

From Best to Worst: Tom Hanks (53 movies items)

"While it's sporadically funny and certainly well-cast, Dragnet is too clumsy and inconsistent to honor its classic source material."

“I wasn't sure what to expect from this flick but since it was one of the few movies starring Tom Hanks I hadn't seen yet, I thought I should give it a try anyway. It was rather fun to see Hanks when is my young and it is one of his typical 80's comedies he made before becoming a 'serious' actor. Honestly, I didn't really like it. First of al, I have never seen the original TV show but I have understood that it was not really faithfull but that's not really surprising. Above all, I thought the whole thing was pretty boring and most of the jokes were rather lame. Even the voice-over by Dan Aykroyd which was pretty funny at first got pretty annoying after a while. I have to admit that the whole thing actually had some potential though. Indeed, Dan Aykroyd and Tom Hanks have some good chemistr” read more

Number of Cases Together: 1 PS: Do you know the kinds of things that fall into an industrial sausage breast? NOT excluding rodent hair and bug excrement? JF: I hate you, Streebeck."

"Who with? My whole friendship group. Why so great? It takes a lot of balls to suggest a film you've never watched before to a massive group of people on a new year's eve afternoon. The Pioneer pulled it off though and this film was an instant winner. I don't think everyone in the room enjoyed it as much as me, but I found it to be just the tonic. Unknown comedy gems from my favourite actors - who can ever ask for more in life? This film preceded an exceptional night of fun and I remember the jo"
