We like it hot. This is worth a dime.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
With wit, satire, and infectious humor, this film is a comedic masterpiece that must be rewatched repeatedly. The slapstick British comedy troupe made this parody of the Arthurian legend and offered a characteristically irreverent take on it in this film that has since gone on to become a cult classic.
It's rare for a comedy to hold up this well, but it stood the test of time. The timeless one-liners like "It's just a flesh wound" make this a movie worth watching repeatedly. The cleverly crafted spoof has proven its enduring charm, standing the test of time and remaining as funny as ever.
You know when you can't explain why a movie is so funny? This is one of them. Totally worth a dime.
It's not often that we come across a movie that bears the name of a well-known holiday and literally redefines it. It's almost been a few decades since its release, and the jokes still land just as well now as they did then. "Groundhog Day" is an enduring masterpiece that effortlessly weaves humor and introspection into its compelling narrative.
Bill Murray's impeccable comedic timing and endearing performance make the film an absolute joy to watch, no matter the era. But what makes "Groundhog Day" so memorable after all this time? Maybe it remains relevant as life is about smiling through the painfully boring days when the world around you feels like a blur.
It took us with its original screenplay. This is worth a dime.
Though unabashedly silly and immature, "Airplane!" is a silly spoof of a disaster movie for those who love wordplay. This comedy first came out in 1980, but its quotable one-liners and slapstick stunts endure to this day. "Airplane!" received universal acclaim from critics and is widely regarded as one of the best films of 1980; however, many still wonder why.
Since its release, its reputation has earned various critics. It was ranked 6th on Bravo's 100 Funniest Movies. It is a spoof of disaster movies; the film serves up a delicious dose of wordplay that tickles the funny bones of comedy enthusiasts everywhere.
If it took them so long to sell the script, then it's probably a waste of time.
Fun With Dick and Jane
Quite true to its name, this film is a whole lot of fun with Jim Carrey and Téa Leoni, who resort to a life of crime after losing all their money. Mostly, they're just really bad at pulling off heists but manage to steal plenty of laughs. Carrey showcases his talent as a multi-dimensional character who can be heartfelt and cartoonish.
Did "Fun with Dick and Jane" live up to its promise of endless amusement? And despite the character's lack of criminal finesse, can we describe their escapades as a riotous delight that will leave you in stitches?
