    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.

    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.

    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.

    The old movies that hold up well over time are comedies. Here are some that I enjoy, then and now.

    1. "It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World"
    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.

    Spoken from a completely hetero standpoint, I have always thought that Elliot was the best looking guy in Hollywood.

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

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

    See the ending here: Dustin looks like he coulda been a good middle distance runner! Look away those with "christian icon blasphemy" sensibilities!

    What the ending says to me is: " Oyve! Now what?"

    The end of the movie (Graduate) puzzled me, too. First of all, wasn't she legally married already? Mrs. Robinson says, "He's too late," when Ben is banging on the window. Then on the bus, their expressions go from happiness to worry.
    The ending was the best part. I like movies to be a little unpredictable. Instead of the usual happy ending, they leave you wondering. Who cares if Elaine was technically already married to the other guy? She went her heart. And it's a good thing Ben was a former track star or he would not have made it to that church. I wasn't even born when the Graduate came out, but it's one of my favorite movies. I think most 20-somethings can relate to it no matter what decade it is.
