Mrs Doubtfire

Very funny comedy movie.  Great Robin Williams movie.  One of those rare movies where I like all of the actors in it.  From smallest role to biggest role.

I agree - an all around humorous film, very enjoyable to watch.  A great double-bill would be this and The Birdcage.

My wife, her brother & I saw it together when it came out (no pun intended) and thought it was hilarious. 

Here's more on it in case you're interested:  The Birdcage/Wikipedia

Watched the first two Indiana Jones movies last night.  The lost ark and temple of doom!  Enjoyed both of these movies very much!  I am fixing to watch The last crusade tonight and then the last one the crystal skull tomorow night.  I really like all four of the Indiana Jones movies a lot.  But I like The Last Crusade the best out of all of them!

Great series.  For me, the first and third ones are the best.  Like Elvis said, "You gotta take the bad with the good."  I wonder if there'll be another sequel.  It'd be interesting to see what they'd come up with next.

Purple Rain (1984)

My wife's brother loaned us his dvd and I wasn't in a hurry to watch this film.  I made it a point to avoid it but curiosity got the best of me.  Other than 4 of the most popular songs from the movie, I didn't care for it much at all (Let's Go Crazy, When Doves Cry, Purple Rain and I Would Die 4 U).  Purple Rain came out roughly a little over 2 months after I'd graduated high school.  I remember the hype and had enjoyed an earlier song from Prince, Little Red Corvette but definitely wasn't a fan.  I remember reading a review in The Boston Globe the weekend after it had come out and it began by making a comparison to Elvis' 1958 movie, King Creole.  I tried finding it online, but no luck.  I can't remember what was said, be it positive or negative but although Elvis was mentioned, I know I didn't read the review all the way through because it ultimately had to do with something I didn't care for.

Unlike King Creole, the acting was pretty bad in Purple Rain.  The drama didn't come through strongly enough for me to care what happened in the story and/or to the main characters and ultimately what would happen in the end.  I just wanted it to end.  What was interesting was seeing a film that came out so long ago, the same year as Eastwood's Tightrope and City Heat.  Like King Creole, the music was entertaining.  A sequel was released 6 years later and bad as Purple Rain was, I am curious to see Graffiti Bridge to compare.

Bruno  (2009)

Not very good.  I've enjoyed other super outrageous comedies by Sacha Baron Cohen but while there were amusing moments in this film, I didn't think it was very entertaining.  The main character was funny but I think the movie would've been better if the whole thing was underplayed rather than shocking the viewers.  I think this was done effectively in Borat and The Dictator, but not here.  I've never seen Ali G but did enjoy Cohen's performance in another comedy, Talladega Nights: The Legend Of Ricky Bobby.

Barbarella (1968)

Hmm.  Interesting.  I remember seeing this on cable years ago but never went out of my way to watch the entire film until now.  I doubt I'll ever watch it again, but it was okay.  Jane Fonda certainly wasn't hard on the eyes.   ;)
