A horror comedy that doesn’t clown around.


Comedy

Rod Lott
We’re slipping, America. It look to Ireland to make the best horror comedy in recent memory, Stitches. The subgenre is one of the toughest to pull off — a feat about as rare as finding a four-leaf clover.

Wuss!

Class dismissed.


Comedy

Rod Lott
For those who tired of the inspirational-teacher subgenre that flourished in the ’80s and ’90s — think Stand and Deliver, Dangerous Minds, Dead Poets Society — there’s Wuss! Exclamation theirs, the film illustrates why I never would want to teach public school in today’s environment, even as a mere sub.

The Kentucky Fried Movie

“I'm not wearing any pants. Film at 11.”


Comedy

Rod Lott
John Landis and the team of David Zucker/Jim Abrahams/Jerry Zucker may have made better movies directly afterward (National Lampoon's Animal House and Airplane!, respectively), but that's not to deny 1977's The Kentucky Fried Movie its rightful place in the all-time comedy canon. A career-launcher for all four, the scrappy Sketch Movie That Could holds up splendidly — in laughs, not fashions — in its Blu-ray debut.
