TOOTSIE (1982)

Dustin Hoffman shows women how to be a real feminist in maybe my least favorite of the AFI’s “Top 100” American movies.

GROUNDHOG DAY (1993)

A deep philosophical tract about the meaning of life, in which the main character keeps trying to commit suicide. Also a comedy where a groundhog drives a truck.

SCROOGED (1988)

A Christmas Carol for the 1980s, extremely cynical and with more people getting hit in the face with toasters.

GHOSTBUSTERS (1984)

Deadpan responses to bizarro, otherwordly threats lead to an all-timer of a comedy.
