" (80s comedies rarely tried to have deep meaning they were just out to entertain). "

Exactly. Probably why growing up in the 80s was fun.
Like most 80s movies that I loved when I was younger and watch now, they may not seem as funny but the nostalgia value(as you say) is very high for me.

I did not see a link to buy from the review page. It's $16.99. That's pricey for a blu ray with a weak/average transfer and no supplements - I figured there would be none

When it dips to about $5 I may pick it up.

Saw this at the drive-in originally. It has a little nostalgia value for me too, but I've been burnt out on this after seeing it dozens of times on tv throughout the years.

I remember Siskel & Ebert reviewing this and saying it wasn't funny at all. Even in their lousy review it looked pretty funny to me (and yes, it was!).

Yeah, this is definitely an overpriced release given the nature of the film and lack of supplements. I'll get it at $10 or less.

Yup. This may appear in the Best Buy $5 special a year from now

God I hate how old this movie is.

Where has the time gone.

I'm a huge Oakland A's fan...a couple years ago, they were on a tear and winning in a tough division. The guys started doing "The Bernie" (think it was based on a rap song) every time they hit a home run or had a great play. They even brought in the actor to throw out the first pitch of one game.

It just kept reminding me of this cheesy (but funny) movie I had seen a long time ago...might hafta check it out again.
