Would be even more welcome than Sly's action flick!

Getting Dan Akyroyd, Chevy Chase, Steve Martin, Eddie Murphy, Martin Short on screen together could help them rediscover the old magic!

You can't have an 80s comedy without the immense power and talent of:

Bill Murray would also be a must-have.

Strangely, he was the first person I thought of! [:D]

Agree with all those mentioned so far.  I'd also throw in Ted Danson and Michael Winslow!

And bring this guy out of retirement...

It'd be good if Steve Guttenberg was in it.

Sorry Harry, the pic wasn't showing on my browser.

But look at all the hilarity that has ensued. Humour is alive and well on the forums after all.

It's not often anyone says that about a thread featuring Steve Guttenberg.

Now you just take that back.

How did they squeeze so many sequels out of the Police Academy franchise? There weren't enough jokes to sustain the first film, never mind seven.




Russ Whitfield -> RE: An "Expendables" for 80's comedy stars... (11/5/2012 2:12:59 PM)

I wonder the same thing about Wayans spoof movies. But there's a market for them, seemingly.

That said... I did enjoy "Meet the Spartans."

I think (back on topic) that the comedy reunion-movie might have some legs - but I'm not a massive comedy fan, so its hard to call. I know that I was really excited about "The Expendables".... maybe it'd work!




horribleives -> RE: An "Expendables" for 80's comedy stars... (11/5/2012 2:31:35 PM)

Thing is, Sly, Arnie, Dolph etc may be creaky and funny-looking but they can still shoot and kick people halfway convincingly on screen. It'd take some script and some director to squeeze even half a giggle out of Guttenberg, Martin or Chase. Though the latter has actually achieved the impossible with Community and made me laugh after 30-odd years of trying so you never know. Mind, put him in a movie where the writing is generally inferior to the small screen and I bet he'd be as funny as cancer - even Steve Martin can raise a laugh on telly.

It was on last night on ITV4. I thought about watching it. But didnt. I wonder how it holds up considering when I was young they were must-watches, must-rentals, must talk about with your friends...

Same here, plus my dad was a massive fan of Tackleberry. This goes some way towards confirming my belief that my dad was an arsehole.




Hood_Man -> RE: An "Expendables" for 80's comedy stars... (11/5/2012 3:41:29 PM)

I vaguely remember the cartoon, but that's it.

Aside from the films obviously (even as a kid I hated them [&:]).

We live in a society of laws. Why do you think I took you to all those Police Academy movies? For fun? Well, I didn't hear anybody laughin', did you?

jonson -> RE: An "Expendables" for 80's comedy stars... (11/5/2012 5:12:01 PM)

I saw Michael Winslow (the guy who makes the silly noises) on something on TV not so long ago. He was still really good. I thought he was well cool when I was younger. The Police Academy films rocked in the 80's.
Plus I don't think Steve Guttenburg was ever supposed to be really funny, more the straight, cute dude who got the ladies.

Anyway, you can't do this without the awesome John Candy RIP.

Michael Winslow is amazing.

His Jimi Hendrix impersonation is fucking immense.

What about this guy?

What? [sm=augen14.gif]

Anyway, I used to love the first few Police Academy movies. I still like the first and the last act of the third. I have always loved those stunts on the jet skis and speedboats. Awesome.

If my financial situation allows it, I'm thinking I might go see him when he plays at my local arts forum this summer.

Don't forget this guy
