Underrated Movies: Nothing But Trouble (1991, Dan Ackroyd)
When you watch this movie, you will decide that it is either A.) a fucking masterpiece or B.) one of the biggest piles of shit ever made. I am in the A group. This is one of the most ridiculous films in history, there is no doubt about it. I’m a really big fan of this specific 80’s & early 90’s comedy because it was just so fucking silly and stupid but it was hilarious. They REALLY do not make them like this anymore. If you want to equate it to something today, it wouldn’t be a comedy… I’d say that Nothing But Trouble is a comedy version of House of 1000 Corpses where no one actually dies, or maybe Rocky Horror Picture Show with less sex and musical numbers. It’s bizarre, it’s zany, it’s oh so 90’s. There are so many silly gags and classic stuff you always see from the comedy heavyweights of the 80’s & 90’s. My childhood was made up of movies like this, and thank God for that because I probably wouldn’t be (as much of) the weirdo I am without them. If you like anything offbeat or totally fucking crazy and haven’t seen this movie, watch it right away.
