Nobody has a sense of humor anymore

The Ridiculous Six


We watched it over the weekend and thought it was funny, and it's no where near as "offensive" as Blazing Saddles :crackup:

:annoy: Now I have to go Art Nazi and attack your premise :wave:


Blazing Saddles is farce and farcical comedies are the only timeless comedies. You can make and remake them.

People still watch The Three Stooges and Marx Brothers. Farce ages well. Chick flick "romantic comedies" not so much.


Think Blues Brothers, or Animal House....Talledega Nights.

And....my all time favorite farce....Its a Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad World.

No...not the same.....

Brooks has even said he has more movies in him but no way he would even attempt them this day and age....

I rest the case....

Creative careers have shelf life. Case in point......John Goodman seems to have decided his is over.

The first paragraph of that link I put in the OP 'splains it all.

It's as though the programming has finally jumped the chasm and filled the DNA gap during the breeding process.

Nah, he's still out there. He was pretty good in the 2nd chapter of Cloverfield. It may not be him, it may be the politics behind the selection process. I don't know the politics of most of the people in this Sandler movie, and that's kind of the point. And then enter Netflix.

This is all speculation on my part, but Hollywood is a den of iniquity and perversion so I think it has more leg than maybe it would appear on first glance.

:dunno:

Goodman is in Rosanne isn't he? They kicked TV butt I hear.... So calling him dead may be premature...

If he's being paid astronomical money then good for him. But historically a career move from Film to TV was riding gravity.

Judging by me, either one is gravity.... I watched a couple of out takes from Roseanne, I still couldn't watch it... although she appears to support Trump the bulk of the program doesn't best I can tell...

Apparently, they did a Bobby Ewing thing. Instead of the whole season being a dream, he just had a sleep apnea mask on :wave:

Hey, at least it wasn't akin to Fonzie jumping the shark :crackup:
