      Laughed myself off the couch. Thanks to AS, who dredged up a long-dead thread about music bands, I found this post:

            S.E. may look tough, but I don't think they come tougher than this fellow.

              2. "Animal House"
              3. "Used Cars"
              I'd add The In-Laws (Peter Falk/Alan Arkin version) to the list. Saw it recently on TCM.

              I also think most of the screwball comedies from the 1934-42 era hold up quite well.

                    I was going to say that! It's my favourite movie comedy. It's routinely voted best comedy ever over here. It's also the film that made me realise what all the fuss was over Marilyn Monroe and that she was actually brilliant.

                      Just re-watched The Graduate last night after finishing the book it was based on. The movie holds up quite well in my opinion, and is definitely a step up on the book.

                      After I finished reading the book I looked up the author on wiki. His page reads like a fake, it makes the guy sound so strange. I checked a few of the references and it appears to be legit.

                        Have we already had a thread in which we discussed movies that surpassed an acknowledged good book? One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest immediately springs to mind. Loved the book, but Jack took the movie up another notch. He did that in The Shining also.
