Evil Roy Slade is the best comedy I have ever seen in 30 years.
1 June 2005 | by (Caribbean island of Barbados) – See all my reviews

When I was ten years old, I watched the movie Evil Roy Slade. Never before had I seen a movie so funny. I swear! Even at that young and tender age I laughed almost hysterically. I have watched a lot of TV in my time and after 30 years of watching comedies in all genres this film is definitely the most comical of them all, in my opinion. Sure, the movie 'Airplane' was good too but the laughs were few and far in between. From the beginning of the Evil Roy Slade movie until the end I couldn't stop laughing. John Astin played the main character role quite convincingly. Although the character was evil you just had to love him from the moment he entered the movie until the moment he left and especially when he had to cope with life without his guns. The film is filled with unexpected and unbelievable events at every turn and written in the funniest way possible. I don't know why, but I have never seen or heard of this film since until I came to this site searching some kind of information about the movie. I have been waiting many years to see this movie again. Too long! I need a good laugh.
