celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, so its prime time to take a look at what may be the pinnacle of the Action-Comedy genre.Parks and Recreation
's Adam Scott recently said as much
over at The Dissolve, and of course there are legion of everyday fans
who are no less enthusiastic.
And then there were the incredibly talented people involved. Director Martin Brest, who is mainly known for this film and Beverly Hills Cop
, has been a bit of a recluse
since the debacle that was Gigli
ten years ago. Danny Elfman was able to get away from Tim Burton for five minutes and create one of the most iconic action film scores
of the 1980's. Charles Grodin has never been better, as exhibited in the stone face he gives in the Litmus Configuration
scene. And then there is DeNiro, who proved in this role that he could do comedy which, well, lets just say that's a mixed legacy
The film did spawn three forgettable sequels
that aired in syndication in 1994, and there are talks of a proper theatrical sequel
now and then by DeNiro, but you simply can't go back to that well again. Best to just revel in the good times:
An Alonzo Mosely Badge
Come Fly With Me
Living in Denial
The Dumbest Bounty Hunters
You're a Pilot?
Catching a Freight Train
A New Watch
Is That Marvin?
It's Not a Payoff, It's a Gift.
As a final note in regards to my namesake, let us just say that sometimes legal actions by movie studios are a very good thing
