Chevy and Aykroyd..can't go wrong.

I was in the mood for an older comedy and I haven't seen this film before. With a cast of Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd..what could go wrong? The plot is decent and kind of predictable, but it's a fun movie with some great laughs and funny situations. There's even a "special" cameo by someone who's quite the man!

Dislikes: Little bit longer than it needed to be, for the type of film..... read more

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it was directed by John Landis, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, to be honest, I really had a hard time to care about the damned thing after all. First of all, the whole concept was at best rather generic. In fact, that was actually a rather generous assessment, in my opinion, it was actually really tedious. Sometimes, it... read more

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it was directed by John Landis, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, to be honest, I really had a hard time to care about the damned thing after all. First of all, the whole concept was at best rather generic. In fact, that was actually a rather generous assessment, in my opinion, it was actually really tedious. Sometimes, it did feel slightly similar to ‘Dr. Strangelove’ but that’s giving this movie way too much credit as nothing remotely smart or thoughtful happened through the whole duration. Concerning the jokes, sure, some of them were funny but most of them were just lame.  And what was the deal with all these cameos from famous directors? I mean, I did spot Sam Raimi and Terry Gilliam but there were many” read more

Movies the giraffe watched in 2016: July (38 movies items)

"First viewing - July 1st Well, Netflix actually added some films to streaming that I wanted to see for a change. I decided to kick off the month with this, which I've been mildly curious about. And it was OK. I laughed a handful of times & was at least mildly entertained throughout its run-time. When the best moments in the film are spotting people with bit parts though (Joel Coen & Sam Raimi! BB King! Ray Harryhausen! Bob Hope!) it's a problem.
