  • Planes, Trains and Automobiles
    "Those aren't pillows!" - one of the funniest scenes in the entire film.

    The train station waiting room scene at the end of "Trains, Planes and Automobiles" with Steve Martin, has me in floods of tears every time!
  • Rob Lowe
    Only decent acting performance as far as I'm concerned, was for his 3.5 season run in the rather excellent political tv drama "The West Wing" as Sam Seaborne. He was still a little wood and too pleased with himself even in that role, but he did have a more broader appeal.
  • The Boys In Blue
    C&B were about as funny as a party political broadcast. And this film in particular made the BBC Test Card look as interesting as The Godfather! I am sure Will Hay's "Ask a Policeman" film was far superior to either this rubbish or the Holloway version.

    Awful film - cardboard characters, paperthin script and dreadful sfx. I know this was made during the Cold War years, but OMG this has all the intrigue of opening a tin of baked beans with a rusty knife!
  • Are You Being Served?
    My parents loved this show when it first aired, but I could never get into it at all, even in childhood. I have some American friends and they couldn't believe how the word "pussy" was mentioned with such free-abandon when the show aired over there! But by the same token I don't think Americans get ironic humour. An eclectic bunch of characters to be sure, but I seriously doubt the show would see the light of day today if broadcast by the BBC or ITV for obvious reasons.

    They were "edgy" back in the day; reminding me of the BBC's Smith & Jones show, but far more one dimensional and vulgar. And it says a lot when I can only remember "The Management" duo in all that time,
