  • Life is just a bowl of pits

    Posted by Captain Mojo on October 5th, 2004 (All posts by )

    Rodney Dangerfield has died at the age of 82. His lack of respect was a matter of record, but the man had some smart ties on his antebellum Tonight Show appearances, and if you didn’t think Easy Money and Back To School were funny, you are a filthy communist. Respect or no, he will be missed.

      He will indeed be missed. (Check out this good review of his autobiography.) A true American original. RIP.

      Great comedic talent, not a great author. I picked up the book based on the Journal review. But he did know how to have and show others a good time.

      Those movies weren’t that great, but Caddyshack? Caddyshack was the shit, man.

      I didn’t bother to mention it because even filthy communists recognize Caddyshack as a masterwork in the comedic sciences. One of the greatest movies ever made.

      Back to School basically revitalized the college party genre, which had sadly wilted after the Animal House glory days.

      I’ll admit Easy Money isn’t the greatest movie in existence, but it has a sleazy, all-American charm all its own…
