Happy Birthday Monster Squad


Monster Squad turned 27 today. I saw this film opening weekend so I can more or less pinpoint exactly what I was doing this weekend almost 30 years ago. I haven't gotten around to opening my Blu Ray copy of the film because I'm not sure I want to revisit it. I have such a perfect memory of this film and I'd rather not have my old man cynicism tarnish that memory. Time hasn't been kind to some of my childhood favorites and I think I'll leave this one alone. At least for now. I have a four year old son and I've been introducing him to my childhood favorites one at a time. As of right now I'm batting a thousand with him. He loved Star Wars (Darth Vader is his favorite), thought Herbie The Love Bug was hilarious and my wife plans on showing him 3 ninjas tomorrow (my wife is a few years younger than me). I assume in another year or two he'll be ready for Monster Squad.

For now this will do

yup, the Wolfman does have nards

Apatow has also built a history of helping break distinctive new comedy voices into the mainstream, from Seth Rogen to Lena Dunham, among many others. Now, in his fifth feature film as a director, Apatow again brings a portrait of an unforgettable character, and a portrayal by a breakout new comedy star, together in a film written by and starring AMY SCHUMER (TV’s Inside Amy Schumer) as a woman who lives her life without apologies, even when maybe she should apologize.
