I watched the 1986 Orion Pictures release Three Amigos on AMC. It was written by Lorne Michaels, Steve Martin and Randy Newman (wrote the music for this movie as well as Avalon, Toy Story, The Natural, Meet the Parents, Meet the Fockers) produced by George Folsey Jr. (Grumpier Old Men, Coming to America, Clue, Spies Like Us, Kentucky Fried Movie, Twilight Zone The Movie, Trading Places, American Werewolf in London, The Blues Brothers) and
I watched the 2020 Amazon Studios spy comedy “My Spy”, filmed in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on Amazon Prime. It is about JJ, a former US Special Forces soldier, that has been hired by the CIA. His rough handling of situations gets him assigned to a low risk surveillance job of Kate, an in-law to a French illegal arms dealer. The nine year old daughter of Kate, Sophie, finds his cameras, his monitoring station and that he is CIA. To keep her from outing him, which would get him fired, he has to comply with all her wishes.
I watched the 1994 Warner Brothers comedy Ace Ventura Pet Detective on TruTV. I can’t believe this is the first time I’ve ever seen this one, and I laughed from beginning to end. Ace Ventura is played by the zany Jim Carrey (The Mask, Dumb and Dumber, The Riddler in Batman Forever, Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, The Cable Guy, Liar Liar, The Truman Show, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Bruce Almighty, Yes Man, Dumb and Dumber To) the Pet Detective who is hired by the Miami Dolphins’ chief publicist Melissa played by
I watched the 1940 Universal Pictures film, the third in the invisible series (The Invisible Man and The Invisible Man Returns), The Invisible Woman on Svengoolie. This movie is a Sci-Fi comedy unlike the first two. John Barrymore (The Sea Beast, Don Juan, Eternal Love, General Crack, The Man from Blankley’s, Rasputin and the Empress) plays the old inventor, Professor Gibbs, who has invented and invisibility machine funded by Richard Russell played by
I’ve been watching the 1989 National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation every year at Christmas since the 90’s. I first owned the DVD and now the Blu-ray but there is no difference between the two. The movie is about Clark Griswold, Chevy Chase (Saturday Night Live, The Groove Tube, Oh! Heavenly Dog, Caddyshack, Modern Problems, Vacation, European Vacation, Spies Like Us, Three Amigos, Vegas Vacation, 2015 Vacation, a writer on the Smothers Brothers Show, Community) trying to have a fun, old fashioned Christmas but everything goes crazy especially when he doesn’t get his expected bonus from work.
I never missed an episode of The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour. The music was great and was always really funny. John David Wilson was the animator for the show with his production studio, Fine Art Films based in England and Hollywood. Wilson did the opening animation and several musical segments with Sonny and Cher vocals. He did the opening to the movie Grease, The Carol Burnett Show, Mr. Magoo, Space Cats, Lady and the Tramp and more.
