Of the 1980's comedy staples, somehow I never saw Johnny Dangerously (1984) until I was well into college. I suspect our family's lack of HBO during the window in which this would have run incessantly meant I never had the opportunity. So, I don't have 1980's nostalgia for the movie.
Frankly, I don't really like it. Which is weird, because I like everyone in it from Keaton to Boyle to Marilu Henner, but because Jamie does love the movie, I've seen it a number of times. I think maybe two spots in it ever make me laugh (one of which is using a pricing gun on puppies in a pet store), and another I only laugh at because Jamie laughs so hard at it (Griffin Dunne yelling "Oh muh God!" as his car plunges down a hill).
I don't want to overly complain about it, because it's not actually painful to watch. It's not like a mid-00's comedy like an American Pie III of whatever that I would just cringe my way through. I just... I dunno. Maybe if I'd seen it when I was 11.
