Hey y’all! Any comedy fans out there? Well drop on by E174, and check out our Spring 2014 film series, Laughs of the Decades! We’re journeying through decades of historic comedy, with five classic films.
Dr. Strangelove, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb – This 1964 Stanley Kubrick classic, starring Peter Sellers and George C. Scott, presents a satirical view of Cold War tension and the nature of the theory of mutually assured destruction. Catch it not only for some laughs, but for a unique history lesson!
Animal House – Chronicling experiences that are likely familiar to those of our very own IU Hoosiers, this 1978 laugh-out-loud comedy chronicles the adventures of a misfit group of college students at Faber University’s Delta fraternity, as they evade the watchful eye of their arch enemy Dean Wormer. This all-time classic features SNL star John Belushi in one of his most memorable roles.
Airplane! – This 1980 flick takes a satirical look at 1970s disaster films. Packed with slapstick gags, the film stars Robert Hays, Julie Hagerty and Leslie Nielsen as they attempt to save a flight full of endangered passengers from certain doom!
There’s Something About Mary – Ben Stiller, Mat Dillon and Cameron Diaz star in this influential romantic comedy. Stiller plays an awkward high school student who has a run-in with misfortune at his prom. Many years later he seeks to reconnect with his date, Mary, and hilarity ensues!
The Big Lebowski – This cult classic follows protagonist The Dude as he’s tasked by millionaire Jeffery Lebowski to help rescue his kidnapped wife by delivering a ransom. The Dude’s friend Walter, however, has other plans, and a series of adventures play out!
