A lot of people in my age group or a few years older speak highly of the comedy classics of the early 80s. Im talking about movies like Caddyshack, Blues Brothers, Stripes, Policy Academy, Animal House (late 70s I think), etc. I like a good comedy as much as anyone but I dont see the appeal of these movies. I was just a baby when these came out so I didnt see them until years after they came out but these so called classics should stand the test of time. I appreciate plenty of movies that were before my time. These comedies just arent that funny to me. In fact they all seem like theyre pretty much the same movie. Slacker rebels sticking it to authority or uptight snobs. It seems like a decent formula but I feel if youve seen one of these movies youve seen them all. I know Im risking getting kicked out of Chicago for criticizing the Blues Brothers but I just dont see whats so special. What do you think? Is it just me or are these comedy classics just not that great?
