I watched this favorite of mine recently!

Written by Hughes........awesome performances by Aykroyd and Candy!

You can't help but hate and love Roman....as a kid I remember snort laughing so hard at the bathroom scene nose clippers and scratch. [Smile]

you know what hot dogs are Chet?
.....Alien presence
.....The old 96'er.....the Bat
....the Bear

I love Chris Young's little sideline love story.....and my favorite part Land of a 1000's Dances at the end! [Smile]

I guess Wilson Pickett did a video with Akyrod's version haha pretty cheesy!

almost ruins what is so great about the song?

"Roman you @*#$(#^$*&~~!!!!!!" "What did he say?" "Go faster." "OK." (floors it)

"...what old man wouldn't want a little girl kissing his cheek?" "A dead one; Bill died in the car on the way over here." (everyone freaks out)..."How could you do that!?" "I didn't do it, he did!"

"I remember being traumatized about a story my Uncle Roy used to tell about a family that went into the woods and was attacked by a band of escaped army psychiatric patients who'd been subjected to violent, hellish, torturous, behavior-modification experiments..."

Even with occasional adult moments, this is what a good family film's supposed to be, something the current studio brass should consider. I wish more film fathers these days could be in the mold of Chet Ripley, a good man who sincerely loves his family and goes the extra mile to do things with them (critics may come down on Hughes for bashing authority figures sometimes, but really, few Shermerian parents are bad upon closer inspection--blinded sometimes, but not bad, and often when they do realize they've made serious mistakes, they're sincerely eager to make it up as quickly as possible). Candy's in top form as always and is just a force throughout the picture; you have to applaud him for being willing to be dragged all over the lake, whacked in the face with a golf ball, and have a bear jump up and down on top of him all in the same picture. The rest of the cast is more than up to par as well (the raccoons included), so it's really a bit of a tragedy this doesn't get as much mainstream respect, it seems.

Never seen this one.
This is one of those dvd's that I plan to buy on several occasions and then put back in the shelf at the very last minute.

Seems like I'm missing out on a good movie.

TKO, get the dvd asap!
While not my fave Aykroyd/Candy flick,
it´s still good and entertaining comedy.

Glad you mentioned this Muffy. One of the Hughes penned movies I tend to overlook but like a lot: Candy & Ackroyd made for a great double act.

I haven't seen that Wilson Pickett video since...too long to remember, probably the when it was first relelased. Not surprised Dan Ackroyd got in there since he's a big soul and blues fan.

Listen to the Bar-Kay's 'Soulfinger' and tell me what Ackroyd movie related theme it reminds you of.

I just watched this while up north in Wisconsin and it made the movie even that much better! My wife and I were loving it. I forget how many great lines Roman has! I think it's just the way Akroyd is acting but so many of his lines make me laugh out loud.

"watch out for those Wisconsin rattlers!"

"don't get too far behind or the indians will get ya!"

"jesus chet I'm half drunk here!"

It renewed my love for this movie!

And of course let's not forget other Roman masterpieces like:

"All kids like bugs...especially fireflies; their butts light up."

"Why would a minister hang up on me? I've been to his church."

"Nice hairdo you've got there Reg; is that supposed to be a neo-skunk thing?"

He may be a weasel, but you can't help love him nonetheless.

"All kids like bugs...especially fireflies; their butts light up"

This is one of the lines from the movie that always made me laugh soooooo hard!!!

a little side story: I grew up in Missouri chasing fireflies to either rub their butt on my face like war paint or trap them in jars. When I moved up here to Washington people here thought they were made up?? So many people had never seen one in their life??? Such fond summer memories I have with "lighting bugs" I can smell what they smell like right now. [Smile]

Secret Admirer... I'm thinking the firefly nation is glad Muffy moved to the Northwest! They were called lightning bugs in my area.. they probably changed their name just in case Muffy came looking for them.
