- Universal Pictures
Directed by Carl Reiner (Summer School), the rags-to-riches-to-rags-to-riches blockbuster (it made $100 million worldwide) was listed at No. 89 on the American Film Institute’s Top 100 comedies. In their original review, the New York Times called the movie “funny, vulgar and backhandedly clever, never more so than when it aspires to absolute stupidity.”
During an AFI presentation a decade ago, Martin, who co-wrote the film, said of the screenplay, “Our goal was to have a laugh on every page.” So, order a glass of “fresh wine” Thursday night and LOL with some sophisticated people during this free outdoor screening presented by Video Dungeon Theatre.
Free, Thu Aug 16, 9pm, Oak Hills Tavern, 7920 Fredericksburg Road, (210) 614-8855, facebook.com/thevideodungeon.
