    The Three Stooges in Orbit

    ★★½

    It lacks the cartoon violence and zany energy that made the Stooges so popular. And while I'm normally very forgiving about story flaws in slapstick comedies, this one was so unfocused, that not even I can ignore it. But the testdrive, which included a very creative way of throwing a bunch of pies in some people's faces and ended with The Stooges accidentally stealing an atomic bomb, was funny. Too bad that the whole movie wasn't like that.

The second category are movies, made by people, who just randomly slap every image from their ADHD ridden stoner brain together, without any feeling for rhythm…

    ★★★★★

    Maybe it’s just my love for the classic slapstick subgenre in general, but this is my favourite Spielberg movie. The gags come fast, most of them are silly, but almost all of them stick one way or another. And the spectacle, that dominates the 2nd half of the movie (and there is a lot of it), is as perfectly staged as you expect it from a Spielberg movie.

    If it has one flaw, it’s maybe that not every actor has…
