Johnny Dangerously
[AllPosters.com] Buy posters from this movie
by Dill Havarti

"Spoofs save lives. Give spoof."
4 stars

Before Batman, there was George Cluny in ER, the most hilarious show on TV. Before Batman, there was Val Kilmer in Top Secret!, the King of Spoofs. And before Batman, there was Michael Keaton in Johnny Dangerously. You gotta have comedy on the resume before you get the big money, dad.

What else can I say. My favorite genre is spoof, and
this one is a doozy. Joe Piscopo plays the best
gangster in all of cinema, and Michael Keaton farts
a tour de force all over Joe's pinstripes. It's NON
STOP LAUGHS ladies and gentlemen. It's about time
someone made fun of the mob, EH! Bout time, I tell
ya!

There are so many good one-liners it's hard to know
where to begin. It's like Austin Powers, only thirty
years ealier. The cars in JD are way better and the
gun and dick jokes are ludicrous and staccato.

Not that I'm dis'n' tha' Powah, but the Spy Who
Shagged me wasn't as funny as this movie. And, in my
humble opinion, Top Secret! is just plain peerless
among spoofs. Still, if you think movies like
Airplane are the shiznit, Johnny Dangerously is a
must-see.

Bring beer, have a blast.
