Directed by: Arthur Hill
Written by: Colin Higgins
Starring: Gene Wilder, Richard Pryor
Erik: This movie stars Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor. During production, Variety reported that Silver Streak would also feature a guest appearance by either one of them doing or saying something funny. I guess that didn't work out though.
Seanbaby: I don't think I would even include Silver Streak in my list of top 100 Richard Pryor/Gene Wilder Movies About Trains. In fact, if they had both strapped shoes to their knees and gone golfing, it wouldn't have made my list of Top 100 Dorf Movies. And in case you thought it was impossible to recognize the degrees of hilarity between different videos of a midget impersonator falling over, read this scholarly analysis of Dorf Goes Auto Racing from an Amazon.com user:
"First off, let me say that this was a hilarious video, just as all of the others in the Dorf Series. Having said that, I must say I was a little disappointed when I compare this to Dorf Goes Fishing." What he's trying to say is that he doesn't care how hilariously short you are, if you're not in a rowboat, fuck you.
Smokey & The Bandit
Directed by: Hal Needham
Written by: Hal Needham, Robert L. Levy, James Lee Barrett, Charles Shyer, Alan Mandel
Starring: Burt Reynolds, Jackie Gleason, Sally Field
Seanbaby: Most of this movie is spoken in Trucker, so some of the jokes in the movie are hiding inside secret code. Which makes it a lot like Shakespeare with moustaches.
Erik: Singing! Dancing! Trucking! At last, a film that deserves its place on the list. Jerry Reed is the thinking man's Mac Davis. In case you think you're too sophisticated for Smokey and The Bandit, consider this: It's co-Coen Brother Ethan Coen's favorite movie, and he's much smarter than you are.
Seanbaby: You made that up about this being Ethan Coen's favorite movie, didn't you?
Erik: I... yes.
Kthor: According to the Internet Movie Database, “Georgia Trooper” was played by “Ronnie Gay.” That’s funny right there, and we’re still in the credits! Smokey and the Bandit conforms to one central tenet of comedy: the film must, in some way, be about getting beer.
