Well I rented this thinking ok i'll take a chance i've always liked Rodney, Randy, Harland and Gilbert Godfried. Well as it turns out it is merely ok! There is some laughs in it but not laugh your ass off. Harland Williams difiently steals the show as the sheriff. Kirstie Alley's character is blah lol! Overral worth a 1 time seeing I think. Rodney is in enough of it I don't know how much more he could have been in. Gilbert is in like 3 minutes of the movie so a little dissapointing. Overral average movie at best.

Both of these movies are available for rent. Back by Midnight was Rodney Dangerfields last film before he died, unfortunately it wasnt very funny. A few familiar faces, Randy Quaid and Kirstie Alley, but the whole time watching Rodney in this movie, I couldnt help thinking about a more decrepit version of Wally Sparks, an older character of his. This movie shouldn't of been made, I think they wouldnt have produced it if he was still alive, it would of been considered garbage. 1 out of 10. Flight of the Phoenix was too long for its own good, and boring. They spend the entire fucking movie building that stupid plane, and bitching cause their people keep dying. The original "Flight of the Phoenix" in 1965, was awesome. That version ended with all the crew finding out they never survived the original plane crash, they were all ghosts building that plane. I thought that was a lot better, in this movie (spoiling it) its all........woo hoo, were happy, give the scientist a nobel prise.........were back in america.......woo hoo........we r happy. (credits roll) Absolute shit. (but when they shot that chinese dude, that was funny) It gets an extra point for this. 2 out of 10.

DISAPPOINTING LAST FILM WITH RODNEY DANGERFIELD, BUT HE STILL SQUEEZES IN SOME GREAT ONE-LINERS. INANE COMEDY OTHERWISE WITH THE USUAL CRUDE HUMOR.
