1112. Carnival Magic (1983)

Misery in another form?

The nature of the business back then.

What would be Egon’s? Stripes (1981)?

Isn’t it true of a lot of comedies then?

Not necessarily. I do think that some of them still stubbornly maintain an emotional resonance long after I’ve accepted how cringeworthy the jokes or premises feel after several decades have passed.

This one was just a lot of “more nothing” a la Starfighers. Not a lot between its ears. The performances aren’t awful but there’s just not that much to the characters or premise.
