Easy Money

Easy Money: Joy
(1983)
Here’s a film that I’ve always liked, why because it always brought me joy. Rodney Dangerfield is funny as hell. The story about Rodney who drinks, gambles and does drugs. His best friend is Joe Pesci…Yeah sounds good right?…It really is! His daughter is about to get married to a guy Rodney doesn’t like. Rodney also doesn’t like his mother in law, who pops in for the wedding. She is very rich and her and Rodney DON’T like each other! One night he gets a call saying the mother in law died. In the will, she states Rodney gets nothing unless he STOPS drinking, loses weight, gambling and doing drugs. Rodney must pick between the life he only knows or all the money a person could want.

“Yeah, well you where the inspiration for twin beds.” 
Im gonna stop there, because some great surprises in the plot come up that you need to see and not read. 

“Why dont you two put your heads together and make an ass outta yourselves.” 

The ending is one of my top 10 endings in movies. As a viewer it hits you and it just works. That’s all I will say on that, watch it because its a good film! Have a Rodney Dangerfield weekend you won’t be disappointed.

Terms of Endearment

Terms of Endearment: Classic

I enjoy this film a lot. One reasons is they don’t make these kind of films anymore. So it’s a rare gem. Acting is top notch, Jack Nicholson is great and the directing of James L. Brooks works fantastic.

A great film for a movie lover, Mother and Daughter or a fan of comedy in general.

About
Aurora and Emma are mother and daughter who march to different drummers. Beginning with Emma’s marriage, Aurora shows how difficult and loving she can be. The movie covers several years of their lives as each finds different reasons to go on living and find joy. Aurora’s interludes with Garrett Breedlove, retired astronaut and next door neighbor are quite striking. In the end, different people show their love in very different ways. (from IMDB)

Skin Deep

Skin Deep: Cockfighting

This film is simply about a womanizing writer with a drinking problem. His life is falling apart, he has writers block and is still in love with his ex-wife. He’s trying to fix his problems but keeps seeing woman who he must have.

Overall its a great film. Some very funny scenes including a very well known cockfighting scene.

John Ritter’s acting just steals every film he was in and this is one of them.

Watch this it’s Funny, it has John Ritter, it’s a underrated film and its a Blake Edwards film.
