after watching karate kid i needed to take something off my list and this was the first thing that came to mind. watching karate kid fucked things up because i realized i wanted it on the list, but also realized i didn’t know what to take off the list (which was actually 26 movies long). so over the next couple months i’m going to try to watch the bottom 10-15 movies to sort out the top 25 properly.
after watching this again i realized that this kinda needs to be on the list. it’s just behind planes, trains, and automobiles in terms of pure comic power. it’s got staying power and has several iconic moments. it doesn’t have the social commentary of office space (also in the top 25 running right now), but it has more laughs. it’s going to be interesting to see where all this stuff pans out.
