02.21.10Netflix Funny. Great cast. Kinda forgettable though. Like it'll leave soon. Funny while it lasted nonetheless.

This gets me to thinking: What makes a comedy timeless. There seems to be a ton of comedies - mostly starring one of "The Frat Pack" - that are undeniably solid and make me laugh but ultimately don't stand out enough to come to mind when someone asks for a funny movie recommendation. Yet other films like Blazing Saddles, Raising Arizona, and Anchorman have no trouble differentiating themselves for me. I think that although the specific taste might differ for everyone (I don't get the Tommy Boy love but plenty do), I think there's a common line in the sand for all of us. Weird phenomena ... So for whatever reason, although I liked this movie and laughed a lot, I can already feel it leaving my memory banks where inexplicably Carl Spackler remains forever
