Finally... they made the perfect movie!

Well first of all, this goes without saying this is Joel Zwick's greatest triumph as a director. Im sure you are like me and have been praying for the Joanie Loves Chachi Movie to finally get made,(its not too late by the way) but this is a close second. You have TV legends John Larroquette as a detective and Bronson Pinchot as his psychic sidekick. As you can imagine the laughs are just nonstop in this one. In fact I laughed so hard, I busted a vein in my forehead and had to be rushed to the emergency room. Don't worry, I am doing fine now. Lucky for me, decorative head bands are back in style to cover it up. I have one with a red sun on it, like in Karate Kid. My headband is named Carlos and I feel it when I wear it I have the power to do anything I want in this world. But I digress. Second Sight is the funniest movie I have ever seen... ever. I am sure you agree with me in that 1989 was the vintage year for comedy motion pictures. This movie is the pinnacle! My only complaint is that I think it would have been funnier with Richard Moll and Mark Lynn Baker. Those were the funny ones. I also would have included Mindy Cohn as the romantic lead in that. I think a love scene with Richard Moll, Mark Lynn Baker, and Mindy Cohn would have been HOT. It would be like Doom Generation kinda, but different. I was also surprised how amazing the special effects were considering the small budget. Made Titanic look like Land of the Lost. Thats not a bad idea by the way. I can see the Sleestacks trying to hold on to Chaka as Chaka drowns in the freezing cold water after the boat sinks. You heard it here first Hollywood! I will sue if you steal that idea! I swear I will! I also would like to see more movies have tacos. I really enjoy tacos and you do not see many people eat them in movies. Something to consider... So if you want the funniest movie of all time, Second Sight is for you. I suggest going out and purchasing it right now. Trust me, it will not leave your VHS player for years to come.
