Free Flick of The Day: 'Punchline'
Today I decided to go outside of the box a little, because my recommendation for the Free Flick of The Day is going to require a little homework, and what I mean by that is that after you head on over to SlashControl to watch Punchline, a 1988 dramedy about a housewife breaking into stand-up comedy, I'm going to recommend you watch Judd Apatow's Funny People and do a little contrast and compare...because if my education in the arts taught me anything, it's that it is all about the contrast and compare.

Punchline was directed by David Seltzer, writer of films like The Omen and Lucas, (which he also directed), and starred Sally Field as a housewife with a gift for comedy who makes a run for the stand-up clubs where she meets a slightly manic med student/comedian (played by Tom Hanks) and the two become friends and eventually competitors.
