Winkler is perfect as the redeemed nerd, and Keaton is a super find, bristling with raw energy. Director Ron Howard sometimes takes the easy route to a laugh, drawing from his wealth of sitcom experience, but he also pays attention to his characters.

Still, Howard's assured style and instinct for comedy keep "Night Shift" light and breezy for most of the time.

Night Shift makes it apparent that Howard acquired an enormous amount of savvy about comic staging and acting during those 20 years or so on the tube.

'Love brokers!' Still Michael Keaton's best role.

This early Ron Howard comedy has no shortage of laugh-out-loud moments thanks to Michael Keaton's unforgettable screen debut as manic wildman Bill Blazejowski.

Keaton's first major role marked him for stardom; and also added to Howard's newly forming directorial stature.

This is a halfway funny movie, one that's got loads of good gags in its first half and nothing but trouble in its second.

This isn't as snappily directed or as caustically conceived as the subsequent Risky Business, which has a similar theme, but it's arguably just as sexy and almost as funny.

Howard's first great film. Should have made Winkler a movie star, but alas....

When Michael Keaton's onscreen it's wildly entertaining.
