03.21.14DVD Microsoft wanted 20 bucks to let me stream Anchorman 2 so I looked through my library for a comedy that Molly hadn't seen and came up with this. For whatever reason, this movie was on HBO a bunch when I hit my formative sweet spot as a kid. Now I basically have the movie memorized and still enjoy it immensely. I consider this movie to contain classic roles from Judge Reinhold, Danny DeVito, and Bill Pullman. I even tolerate Bette Midler here. It's completely rooted in the 80s with spandex miniskirts and Beetle Juice-esque (except not ironic) interior design and serial killer fever (I remember for a time all of LA was pretty terrorized by Richard Ramirez and the hillside strangler and the freeway killer and everybody else. Of course today it's kind of like "...and why is there a serial killer in this movie all of a sudden?" Made perfect sense to me back then. Perfect fodder for comedy right?
