Weekend Movie Marathon: Just for Laughs
« on: July 14, 2010, 03:23:43 PM »
Weekend Movie Marathon

Because I have so many unwatched... In between each movie this weekend I will watch some classic comedy shorts. I have several DVDs from The Little Rascals, The Three Stooges & Red Skelton. So I thought I would get some of these watched.

I really been on a movie kick lately... as many as I watched this month so far I feel the mood to watch more already. Not sure if I will start early tomorrow... or hold off till Friday like usual. But since I knew what I wanted to do... I thought I would set it up. :)

No smart comments if I decide to watch the above two, Roger... I just checked my DVD Profiler... the last time I watched either of the above two was on June 7th, 2009... That is over a year since I have seen them!  :tease:

Which I admit... it a record for me!  :P

Title: The Beach Girls
Year: 1982
Director: Pat Townsend
Rating: R
Length: 91 Min.
Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 1.78:1
Audio: English: Dolby Digital: Mono
Subtitles: N/A

Stars:
Debra Blee
Val Kline
Jeana Tomasina
James Daughton
Adam Roarke
Dan Barrows

Plot:
A coming-of-age story about a bookish young woman who changes during her summer vacation from a bespectacled bookworm to a femme fatale.

Extras:
Scene Access

My Thoughts:
This is one of the movies that I got out of the Too Cool for School boxset. This is one of many from that set that I never seen. I went into this one expecting nothing more then a T&A movie. And that is basically what it is. The acting leaves a lot to be desired. The storyline is nothing but a few beach parties one after the other. Then there is a silly contrived side story to make part of the main story work. Sure it has entertainment value... it has tons of beautiful women in bikinis and less throughout the entire movie. But that is about all you get here.

Out of a Possible 5

Comedy Break
The Little Rascals: Vol. 1 & Vol. 2: Collector's Series
Episode Title: Hearts are Thumps
Director: Gordon Douglas
Year: 1937
Length: 11min.

Cast:
George McFarland as Spanky
Carl Switzer as Alfalfa
Billie Thomas as Buckwheat
Darla Hood as Darla
Eugene Lee as Porky


Plot:
It is Valentine's Day, and Spanky, Alfalfa, Buckwheat, and Porky are not impressed. Deciding that romance is the bunk, the boys form the He-Man Woman Hater's Club. Alfalfa is willing to go along with this until he falls head over heels in love with classmate Darla.

My Thoughts:
This one is pretty cute. Though I could have gone without Alfalfa's singing. Even if I did like music... I wouldn't want to listen to him sing! But when Spanky and Buckwheat sabotaged his lunch with soap... which he is forced to eat...and then Alfalfa getting a drink of water before singing... making the bubbles is a cute and entertaining idea. I will have to note this short to watch with my next Valentine's Day marathon.

Title: Land of the Lost
Year: 2009
Director: Brad Silberling
Rating: PG-13
Length: 102 Min.
Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 1.85:1
Audio: English: Dolby Digital: 5.1, Spanish: Dolby Digital: 5.1, French: Dolby Digital: 5.1
Subtitles: English, French, Spanish

Stars:
Will Ferrell
Anna Friel
Danny McBride
Jorma Taccone
John Boylan
Matt Lauer

Plot:
Comedic genius Will Ferrell stars as has-been scientist Dr. Rick Marshall, who gets more than he bargained for when his expedition takes a wrong turn into the Land of the Lost. Now, Marshall, his crack-smart research assistant Holly (Anna Friel) and a redneck survivalist named Will (Danny McBride), have no weapons, few skills and questionable smarts to survive in a world full of marauding dinosaurs, fantastic creatures and laugh-out-loud comedy!

Extras:
Scene Access
Audio Commentary
Bonus Trailers
Deleted Scenes
Featurettes

My Thoughts:
This is the second time I watched this movie since I bought it. I grew up with the TV Series it is based on so that definitely added some value for me. I was somewhat surprised to see they changed it from a family on a camping trip to a scientist, his assistant and a guide. I think I would have preferred if it was more like the series in this regard... but I was still able to enjoy the movie. The fact that Will Farrell is the star is something else that had me nervous as to me he has always been a very hit and miss actor... I don't like half the stuff I see him in. he movie really is a lot of fun. A non-sense type of fun... but fun nonetheless. Some of it had me laughing out loud... but then again some of it had me shaking my head in disbelief. And I definitely got a kick out of both Chaka and Grumpy. But overall it was more entertaining then anything. Though I will say that for me it did go down hill a bit towards the end. Over-all I am glad I have it in my collection... and I can see myself watching it again.

Comedy Break
The Three Stooges: All The World's a Stooge
Episode Title: 3 Dumb Clucks
Director: Del Lord
Year: 1937
Length: 17min.

Cast:
Moe Howard
Larry Fine
Curly Howard
Lucille Lund
Frank Mills


Plot:
"'Til death do us part" takes a new meaning as the Three Stooges try to prevent their father from marrying a gold-digging young floozy whose friends plan to kill him after the wedding.

My Thoughts:
I normally enjoy The Three Stooges quite a bit... but this short I found to be only average. I don't know why... but I just didn't find it all that funny. I just got one small chuckle out of this one. I did get a kick out of seeing the Stooge's father being played by Curly... only with fake bushy sideburns.
