Movie Reviews: The King Of Comedy + Captain Ron + Trainspotting

The King Of Comedy (1982)
Loons have dreadful excitement and pained eyes over a chat show host (Jerry Lewis). People get worked up ranting and raving and being menacing. There is nothing remotely innovative, pithy, witty or wistful about this. Jerry Lewis runs from his unwelcome fans and their idiot plans. There is ugly 80s attire and the ending is actually good.

Best Lines:
“It’s not grammatically correct.”

“You scum! You’re street trash!”

Captain Ron (1992)
A family led by Martin Short tangle with a one eyed pirate (Kurt Russell). This was dated (especially the Cuba scenes) and not funny.

Best Line:
“No reasonable explanation for even being here.”

Trainspotting (1996)
No; though the scenes with the dead baby and the dirty sheets will live on in your mind forever.
