Am I, Like, the Only Person in the World Who Loves…

The Hudsucker Proxy?

I see that it bombed when it came out and that critics panned it as empty and soulless and I wonder what planet everybody is from.  The thing is charming and hilarious. The script kills me.  Tim Robbins is the perfect decent doofus.  Jennifer Jason Leigh nails the tough and smart girl reporter who is Rosalind Russell/Katherine Hepburn/Barbara Stanwyck rolled into one.  It’s just a hilariously odd movied.  You can see it on Amazon Prime for free.  Anybody who loves a screwball comedy should love this movie.

Help me, Steven Greydanus!  You’re my only hope!
