Movie Reviews

4 comedies that aren't that classic
calvinnme | 09/05/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is not any of the A List comedy films that Warner Bros. released recently or in the distant past. Instead, what you are getting are four C grade comedies that are just not that great. So far they are not listed in the product description, so here they are:

1. The Man with Two Brains (1983) - 3/5 - Stars Steve Martin and Kathleen Turner. This is one of those comedies that Steve Martin was making pre-Roxanne that somewhat missed the mark by trading funny for silly. Martin plays a brain surgeon who marries a beautiful woman and finds out too late her favorite hobby is tormenting men.

2. Spies Like Us (1985) - 3/5 - Stars Chevy Chase and Dan Akroyd. Chase and Akroyd star as two government employees caught cheating on a civil service exam that end up being recruited as decoy spies to draw out the Soviet defenses in Afghanistan. It's just not very well done considering the talent of the leads.

3. Vegas Vacation (1997) - 2/5 - I really liked the original Vacation and the Christmas Vacation movies, but by now the concept was really tired, and Chevy Chase just seems to be going through the motions.

4. The Man Who Knew Too Little (1997) - 3/5 - Stars Bill Murray. Murray plays an American in London who mistakes real international intrigue with an audience participation game that he thinks he is playing. This is the only truly funny film of the four."
So, so, not much to write home about
Ryan E. Wool | NYC, NY | 09/29/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Spies Like Us was good but the other three were eh. If they really wanted to make a good set, they should have included the original National Lampoon Vacation along with The Jerk instead of the other Steve Martin movie and then Groundhog day instead of that other Bill Murray movie. But what do I know, this is why they sell these four packs in the first place.

Bottomline: you get what you pay for."
For the price, not a bad value
Brett Smith | Springfield USA | 04/05/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If this were on sale for $9.99, then I'd say it's a good value. Sure, it's four so-so comedies, but when you're on a plane for several hours it's reasonable entertainment."
