There was a time in the mid-90s where movies based on once-popular television properties were all the rage. There were a few successes in there like The Brady Bunch Movie and a pair of Addams Family flicks, but, if you sift through the rubble, you'll find more duds like The Honeymooners, Lost In Space, Bewitched and so on and so forth than real gems that have stood the test of time.

A few thoughts on tonight's The People v. O.J. Simpson coming up just as soon as my stylist turns me into Rick James...

Need a good laugh, but only got an hour and a half? Might we recommend this little lot...
I’m of the firm belief that films work most effectively when their runtime is 90 minutes or less. It forces an economy of story and dialogue which propels the film into its best self. No bloated middle, extended ending, or wasted stories here. This goes double for comedies. They should never outstay their welcome. But they seem to be getting longer, as we recently pointed out here.
So to refresh your movie comedy palette, here are 25 films that are 90 minutes or under. I’ve tried to avoid the more obvious ones, and shine a light on those comedies which might have gone a bit unappreciated over the years, but are well worth a hour and a half of your time. This lean runtime isn’t a guarantee of greatness of course, »
