Visually arresting, side-splittingly funny and intellectually challenging, it’s a mixture of ‘The Twilight Zone,’ ‘Network,’ ‘Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman’ and its own distinct style.

title: Mister Roberts function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Warner Studios MPAA rating: NR starring: Henry Fonda, Jack Lemmon, James Cagney, William Powell release year: 1998 film rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Nowadays, when you see two names given shared director credit on a film, it’s normally cause for alarm. However, when the names are John Ford and Mervyn Leroy and the film in question is ‘Mister Roberts,’ it’s a whole different story.

title: Spies Like Us function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Warner Studios MPAA rating: PG starring: Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd release year: 1985 film rating: Two and One-Half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Director John Landis is responsible for revitalizing the teen college comedy with 'Animal House,' reinventing the whole concept of comedy/horror in 'American Werewolf in London' and being among the first filmmakers to showcase the work of makeup effects hero Rick Baker. In other words, the man has achieved enough to warrant being cut some slack.

title: Young Frankenstein function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment starring: Gene Wilder, Peter Boyle, Marty Feldman, Teri Garr, Cloris Leachman release year: 1974 film rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein A quarter of a century after its initial release, ‘Young Frankenstein’ remains sublimely silly and disarmingly sweet. Mel Brooks directed and co-wrote (with star Gene Wilder) this cheerfully delirious send-up of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley’s seminal horror novel, which had already been immortalized on film several times already, most indelibly by director James Whale, with Boris Karloff as the monster. ‘Young Frankenstein’ is a sequel of sorts, with Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (Wilder) a modern ‘30s doctor who is so ashamed of his family legacy that he insists on pronouncing his surname "Fronkensteen." However, when he inherits the Frankenstein manor back in Transylvania, destiny forces him to unearth the old medical journals and soon he, too, is ensconced in the laboratory, intent on giving life to a new creature (Peter Boyle).

title: Dragnet function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Universal Home Video MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Dan Aykroyd, Tom Hanks, Harry Morgan, Alexandra Paul release year: 1987 film rating: Two and a half stars sound/picture: Three stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein There is something truly endearing about watching someone do something they've always longed to do. This is probably the biggest selling point of 'Dragnet.' Dan Aykroyd looks like he's been waiting his whole life to out-monotone Jack Webb as that quintessential L.A. cop Sgt. Joe Friday. The actor manages the same weird feat of being gleefully solemn. Essentially, it's a right-side-of-the-law variation on his Blues Brothers persona, but Aykroyd is so serenely at home in the role that the performance winds up being rather touching.
