1941

"Horry-Wood!"

"I'm a bug!"

Wow, what a horrible, horrible movie. Though it is fun to play "Hey! I know that actor!"

Re: 1941

I never though it was that bad. I had several good laughs.
Still find it funnier than what passes for comedy in movies today.

Not quite up there with Blues Brothers or Animal House, but I agree, tons better than 95% of today's crap.

I own the DVD. Haven't watched it in a while.

I liked parts of it. Saw it on the same day as The Jerk. I recall my then girlfriend thought 1941 was funnier.

I love 1941, and I make no apologies for it.

My favorite sequence is the dance-off/fight scene. Dance choreography and fight choreography all rolled into one? Awesome.

I like it a helluva lot better than ET, and I really laughed my ass off in parts of it.

I liked most of the sub stuff with my favorite part being when Toshiro Mifune says "Good shooting sailor!" to the guy who hasn't even loaded his gun yet, and the guy does a little bow.

Re: 1941

1941 was overproduced, overhyped, unfunny and just plain DUMB. It was Steven Spielberg's Howard the Duck. Or you could say Howard the Duck was George Lucas' 1941. Works either way.

YMMV.

Eh, it's uneven, but hardly horrible. I still enjoy most of it.

Absolutely. That's great fun and beautifully executed, with good music, too.

It's been years since I've seen it but when I last saw it, it made me laugh. I don't know if it still would or not but I suspect that it's certainly better than its reputation.

I like it, it's not great, but... it's a zany cartoon/comic book of a movie, and works mostly on that level.

Take out the Tim Matheson stuff, make Belushi an off-screen prescence until the end making it a 'big reveal' ...take out all that Godawful screaming (people going AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH isn't funny)...and you've got a much tighter movie.

Believe me, I'm usually very easy to please. Hell, I liked Neighbors and Always.
