Get Yourself a College Girl

Pure, unbridled fun.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Get yourself "Get Yourself a College Girl," a 1964 co-ed comedy as bubbly, effervescent and tasty as an ice-cold bottle of RC Cola.

Abbott and Costello Meet Captain Kidd / Rio Rita

Not essential A&C, but fun for fans and completists


Comedy

Rod Lott
One of the best DVD buys of this past decade was "Abbott & Costello: The Complete Universal Pictures Collection," a box set containing nearly as many feature films as our bodies have bones (give or take).

Bunny and the Bull

A charmer and a gut-buster


Comedy

Four Lions

That's right: a comedy about terrorists.

The Switch

It's got spunk!


Comedy

Rod Lott
If you can rent only one sperm-swapping comedy this year, make it “The Switch.” And if you can rent two, well ... oh, just rent “The Switch” twice.

National Lampoon’s Dirty Movie

Well, at least they tried something different.

Sunday in New York

Cute, but a bit on the slight side


Comedy

The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu

The word 'niche' applies neatly


Comedy

Rod Lott
If you don't know Cthulhu from Shinola, don't bother watching this comedy. And if you do, it's still kind of a toss-up.

Due Date

Not 'The Hangover,' but still good!


Comedy

Rod Lott
Todd Phillips' "Due Date" had the rather unfortunate position of being his follow-up to "The Hangover," the Golden Globe-winning critical smash that ended up being the highest-grossing R-rated comedy in the history of cinema.
