Re: 1941

1941 isn't a great movie by any means, but I don't think it's the great fiasco most histories make it out to be. (Beyond the obvious financial fiasco it certainly was upon release.)

It has a great John Williams score, and a number of moments that are very funny. (It helps to have an audience; I caught it in the theater and it allowed me to appreciate the movie above and beyond my rather negative perception of it on home video.)

Of course, considering the talent involved, it's hard not to be a bit disappointed, but I think it has enough moments that it is worth seeing. The opening, a self-parody of Jaws, is a lot of fun.

I also own the DVD. I wouldn't call it a great movie, but it IS a fun way to kill two hours.

I liked 1941 when it first came out - then again I was a lot younger. A few months back it was on TV so I turned to it. I couldn't do more than 5 minutes before flicking to something else.

It's got a great John Williams score that you don't hear very often.
Travel's fatal to prejudice, bigotry, narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things can't be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's life.
