Johnny Dangerously (1984)

I love this oddball period gangster spoof, directed by Amy Heckerling, with Michael Keaton at his cockiest, snappiest, and coolest as the title gangster who tries to support his ma (Maureen Stapleton) and tries to keep his kid brother (Griffin Dunne) on the straight and narrow. The setting is decidedly non-realistic -- it doesn't take place in any kind of reality, or in any kind of gangster film you've ever seen before -- and the jokes range from deadpan visuals to clever wordplay to irreverently dumb, repeated jokes that escalate with each telling. Joe Piscopo is also funny as the snide gun nut Vermin. But the villain Roman Troy Moronie, played by Richard Dimitri, gets the biggest laughs with his fractured curses, like "you fargin bastages!" The movie did not perform well either with audiences or critics, but it has its passionate fans today. "Weird Al" Yankovic provided a ragtime-style theme song, "This Is the Life," that fit perfectly, but was eventually deleted from home video releases for legal reasons. read more...

High Anxiety (1977)

With two hit spoofs under his belt, Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles, Mel Brooks took on the narrower and more difficult target of Alfred Hitchcock films. With horror movies or Westerns, the range was much broader; there was more material to play with. But Hitchcock's movies are already so precise and playful that there's very little room for parody. The best Brooks can do is to place himself in the shower with an angry bellhop outside the curtain, or to run through the park with an army of vengeful birds crapping on his suit. Most of this stuff isn't particularly funny however, and even though I watched High Anxiety for the first time in 2010, I'm not sure it would have been very funny back in 1977 either. read more...

The Angry Birds Movie (2016)

Emerging at the end of 2009, the enormously popular downloadable video game has apparently sold some 2 billion units to date (I myself have spent countless hours playing), and so the inevitable movie (produced in English, even though the game is Finnish), the computer-animated The Angry Birds Movie provides an origin story for the bird vs. pig feud. read more...

Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993)

Nestled between Kevin Reynolds' Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991) and Ridley Scott's Robin Hood (2010), Mel Brooks' Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993) actually looks like a champion, like the small film that robbed from the two soulless blockbusters and gave a hero back to the people. Certainly it has the best Robin Hood of the three films: Cary Elwes is far more dashing and jubilant than either Kevin Costner or Russell Crowe, and he seems born for the role, rather than shoehorned into it. read more...

Lazer Team (2016)

The guys behind the popular YouTube channel Rooster Teeth offer this feature film, and while it's far from brilliant, it has a good spirit and shows an infectious enthusiasm for cheesy sci-fi films. Lazer Team is smart about its not-so-smart characters (the title is deliberately misspelled); it paints them as sympathetic and imperfect, and it's easy to root for them, especially since their basic predicament requires teamwork to survive. read more...
