Whatever happened to laughter? Hollywood seems to be coming up short when it comes to big comedies.
Let’s turn back the clock to a simpler time…the 80′s.
Caddyshack, Airplane, Stripes, Spinal Tap, Fast Times At Ridgemon High, Vacation. Three of the first four Eddie Murphy movies. These were films for adults. Juvenille adults, but adults nonetheless.
Now? The Hangover is praised because there are so few films like it that get made anymore. Instead, it’s mostly PG-13 crap designed to be Netflix-ready in a couple weeks. Ben Stiller is a big star. Tyler Perry keeps getting the greenlight to make movies.
I understand the need from safe, family-friendly fair. I just would like a little more R-Rated juvenille nonsense in my life, something I could Netflix three months after it bombs at the box office.
