A blog dealing with either the joy of cinema or the agony of cinema--nothing in between.

They don't make 'em like they used to. I never thought I'd be saying that about Billy Madison, but in regards to comedy, they really don't make 'em like they used to. When this was released in 1995 people complained about its infantilism and gross-out gags, but it appears to be mild compared to today's comedic fare. Even Adam Sandler's own film have become less inspired while favoring even more off-color gags and immature behavior. But Billy Madison was a film I thought was hysterical as an adolescent, was told then that that movie was geared towards a certain age group, and yet still continues to crack me up today. Even more so then the supposed "great" comic films being released in these days.
