Re: Chevy Chase says doing Community show was a "Big Mistake"

Has there been a good Chevy movie since the 80's?

Betty White is 90 and she is doing a weekly sitcom with 22 - 24 episodes per season.

Chevy Chase is like Foghat, if Foghat thought they were the Beatles.

I stand by Bill Murray's opinion of Chevy Chase: "Medium talent!"

Doncha just love it when you finally get to laugh like that again? It seems to take so much to laugh sometimes.

Right now, I'm laughing every time I see the Jingo's commercial. "Not gonna happen!" The actor said it just perfectly! Oh, never heard of Jingo's, not interested in buying it, but I do love the commercial.
Yes! I caught that commercial last night. I laughed my ass off, because the line just came out of nowhere, and the way it was delivered was perfect!

As for Chevy, I loved him in the National Lampoon vacation movies, loved him in Fletch, Caddyshack, and Spies Like Us. He can be very funny, but I do recall him having an attitude. Still, I can understand a bit about what he's saying, and agree with Jono that it's all in how it's said.

This.

Oh, well, Chevy, I'm sure they'll let you cameo in the Vacation reboot.
Agree.

Having seen some, I don't think I've ever laughed at one...he has been unremittingly unfunny for his entire career.

Maybe National Lampoon's vacation and Christmas Vacation. Caddyshack? Spies Like Us?

I saw Spies Like Us a little over a week ago. It was unremittingly unfunny.

I don't think I've seen any of the Vacation movies, except, oddly enough, Vegas Vacation, but that was over a decade ago. I remember that Chevy Chase was in it, but Randy Quaid was the one who made me laugh.

Re: Chevy Chase says doing Community show was a "Big Mistake"

Has anyone else notice these last few years how it's next to impossible to see a new American comedy without one to three stars of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE featured in it?

The show has classic cast members and episodes, but is also famous for beating 50 percent of its jokes into the ground in between two four-minute commercial breaks. Add all the musical numbers with performers' hands not even seeming to touch their guitars, and the total entertainment value doesn't come close to 60 minutes, let alone its 90-minute slot. I think the show has much to answer for, including its contaminating the movies with Will Ferrell, Amy Poehler, Tracy Morgan and so many others. (Tina Fey is a welcome exception.) And why dwell anymore on Guest Host for life Alec Baldwin? I can think of funnier relatives in cemeteries....but Chevy Chase would be slightly better.

Betty White is 90 and she is doing a weekly sitcom with 22 - 24 episodes per season.
And even without the sitcom, she's getting so much favorable attention from fans and other actors/actresses. She seems quite thankful and positive for this resurgence, which happened just a few years ago and she's been nurturing it very well ever since. That's opened a lot of doors for her, and rightly so.

Chevy should take notes.

I've loved Betty White forever. I think it's her openly fun personality that helps.

Betty White is 90? Wow. She looks pretty good for her age!

Ew! No, not like that.

I mean she just doesn't look like she's 90 and she seems like she's in remarkably good health and active compared to most nonagenarians, even celebrity ones.

I found him very believable as an evil, egotistical asshole on Chuck. Ooh and Scott Bakula got to punch him in the face!
