Movie of the Week: Transylvania 6-5000

Man, this movie brings back some memories. Jeff Goldblum and Ed Begley, Jr. work great as a comic team in this laughfest from the eighties. The film is also a great comic vehicle for Geena Davis (in her best role ever, in my opinion), Michael Richards (Seinfeld's Kramer), Carol Kane, Jeffery Jones and an outstanding performance by Joseph Bolongna as the mad scientist. The laughs get bigger and bigger as the movie continues. The scene where Ed Begley asks the locals if they've seen Frankenstien is absolutely comic heaven. This was never a big hit so alot of people never heard of it, but take my word for it, if you have any sense of humor you will laugh, and laugh alot. I give it **** out of *****.
