    Nice thought, but I refuse to even contemplate a world without Ghostbusters.

    • Veronica

      I second that. I love Groundhog Day, but Ghostbusters was perfection itself.

  • CJ

    May he find rest in a place where the streams never cross.

    RIP the director of my favourite movie of all time. I remember him, in an interview about Groundhog Day, saying it wasn’t all just guff to him– he really believed in its message. Also, I learned the word “dayenu” from this post.

    His ghostbusters cartoon character version (Egon) will go down as the most unlike version of the real person in history!

  • Elmwood

    Caddyshack was pure comedic genius. One of my favorite all time movies with an all-star cast.
