  1. This film is ridiculous, and I mean that in a good way. Marilu has one of the best lines. “Did you know your last name’s an adverb?” Weird Al Yankovic’s video is a perfect summary of the film.

  2. Maybe I need to finally see this! Love Keaton! BTW, I’m a former red head (I got old and my hair went white, or perhaps beige), and I have to tell you, pink is one of the best colors for a red head as long as it’s bold enough not to match our skin color.

  3. I adore this film! So, the original theatrical release had the Weird Al song as its credits opening song, but there was some kind of weirdness when the VHS was released, so that had a version of Let’s Misbehave at the beginning. (I own a VHS copy!) Later on, the weirdness got fixed, and DVD copies are back to having the Weird Al song.

  4. Wow, talk about taking a movie out of the vault of childhood! Yes, I saw it ages ago and remember finding it funny at the time. Since you’ve refreshed it in my memory, I’d like to re-watch as an adult. Michael Keaton is so underrated as an actor. And thanks for using the term “tie tack,” as I’ve been trying to remember what that accessory is called for weeks!

  5. Such a weird, funny movie. I love the eminently watchable Michael Keaton in it. It’s also one of the few cases of post-SNL Joe Piscopo being put to good use. It’s odd, he was so good on Saturday Night Live and then… not a lot else. (We don’t talk about Sidekicks !)
