Crop And Save
Canadian Bacon (1995)
What a waste of everybody's time
This movie is just a waste. One of the worst John Candy movies ever made. I don't think I laughed at anything in it. Not the stiff acting, the moronic plot and certainly not any of the so-called "jokes." If this was the first movie for any of these actors, none of them would ever work again. It was so bad that it made me feel sorry for Alan Alda, who I don't think rises to the acting ability of a second grader in a Christmas pagent.
One of his better movies but often misunderstood
Although Tie me up, tie me down doesn't reach the levels of greatness that Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown did, this is none the less a hilarious movie.
First thing that you should remember is that this is a FARCE. It isn't intended to reflect a real situation or inspire people to imitate it. As a matter of fact, I'd be hard pressed to believe that anyone watching this movie would come away thinking they should kidnap someone to make them fall in love. That would be the difference between a movie and reality.
That being said the movie does have a lot to say about what people will do for love and how love and lust tie us to other people. It also makes the great point that love doesn't change who we are, but it does change how we perceive those we are in love with.
And in case I forgot to mention it, the movie is funny. Antonio Banderas and Victoria Abril both are very good but Loles León steals the movie as the air-headed sister.
Battlefield Earth (2000)
This is the movie on the flight to Hell
How bad does bad get? If you think that John Travolta running around in knee high elevator boots while cavemen learn to fly F16 in two days and build a nuclear weapon powerful enough to destroy an entire planet is a bad idea, then don't watch this. Because as bad as that sounds the movie gets worse. I wanted to give this a -10 but IMDB doesn't get that low.
