An instant classic...

The Ice Cream Man...how can I start.

Ok...Clint Howard is the greatest actor in this movie. This movie is so ridiculous on so many levels that I wonder how it ever was greenlighted. But, I'm glad it was.

I encourage all to see this movie...don't really wanna say what its all about...you have to experience it for yourself. But cameos by Steve Garvey(San Diego Padres) and Doug Llewelyn(People's Court), make this movie a complete farce.

You'll laugh, you'll laugh, then you will stare at the tv...then at whoever watched it with you...then you'll turn off the tv and go outside...
