    "I am lucky to have watched a number of 80's movies and I gotta admit that Back to the Future is my favorite. Well, it has become one of my all-time favorite films not just because it is a funny film. But it is the most complete film I have ever seen. It has great graphics, great storyline, and great actors. The plot twist is something you wouldn't be able to guess if you're watching it for the first time. Plus the music rocks!!!"

    "Good Morning, Vietnam is one of those films you really can't categorize. But this being a Robin Williams film, it is easy to place it in the comedy genre. And no one would argue that it wasn't funny. Of course, it was. What Robin Williams film wasn't funny? Even the darker ones??? I just love how it depicted the lives of those people stuck in Vietnam back in the day."

    "This is funny as heck. The first time I watched it, I was literally laughing from start to finish. This is the best parody ever. I had no idea that Bill Pullman has such a great comedic timing when I first saw this. But to tell the truth, he could have played any lead role in any movie and I would still be laughing because I would remember Spaceballs. In fact, I think I was one of the few who laughed out loud during Pullman's speech as Mr. President in Independence Day. Just imagine him acting like he does in Spaceballs and then giving out that epic speech? "

    "A classic film if there ever was one. I hated this movie when I was a child. I thought it was too disgusting. But the second time I watched it, I understood that this movie was meant to be funny. And it was hilarious actually, once you get past the icky part."

    "A heist within a heist within a heist. That plot should leave you dizzy enough that you wouldn't know who to root for! The film was an absolute laugh. I have forgotten how good Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Kline, and the rest of the cast were. Totally a different class of comedy from the ones we are getting these days!"

    "Just another meal ticket for Robert Zemeckis. This guy is a genius and to have pulled off something like this using the tech they had back then? That shows how good this guy is at what he does. "

    "Very few sci-fi films would make you laugh like Repo Man. Mind you, it isn't a slapstick comedy. There really is a humor in some scenes and you wouldn't be able to help yourself. "

    "This has got to be the best mockumentary film I have ever seen. Not that there are many in this genre, but This is Spinal Tap always springs to my mind even when I'm thinking about rock or music documentaries. This movie is an accurate depiction of what it was like during the days, mockumentary or not."
