Let’s lighten it up a bit. When I think about favorite comedy, I could probably go with many choices: Clerks, Swingers, Old School, The Big Lebowski…the list goes on, but I’m going to go with Raising Arizona. First of all, it is one of the first true comedies I ever saw. Yes, I know growing up you see many funny movies, but this one of the first “grown up” comedies I saw. Second, it has the funniest scene in movie history…according to me. It is really a throwaway part, but when the McDonnough’s invite over Hi’s boss, Hi and his boss are talking in the trailer. The boss says to Hi, “Ol Buford (referring to his child writing “FART” on the wall), he sure is a sly one. Watch this. Hit the deck boy!” And then, he throws a handful of peanuts at him. I love this part, and I always laugh it. Finally, it has a good story. Any good comedy has to have a good story. Yes, a lot of funny jokes with no discernible plot can work, but a comedy with a strong plot makes a BIG difference. Raising Arizona married humor and plot together…now, I always be a fan of the Coen brothers.
