    I think this topic went off thread quick, I'm more talking about straight humor. It's pretty universally accepted 70s/80s comedies are mired in racism, sexism and a lot of other isms that are not socially acceptable now. That stuff is all cringeworthy, outside of maybe Blazing Saddles, which is a different convo, but still likely would never get approved now.

    But even the humor, jokes, situations that are funny from my memory, are less funny to not funny on rewatch. Maybe I am just making a decision off one movie - will check back in after a larger sample size.

    I dig the weird John Cusack movies of the 80s like Better Off Dead, though it has been a while since I've seen one, so maybe they don't actually hold up
    I watched One Crazy Summer a couple weeks ago. I can't say that I liked it as much as I once did but I don't regret watching it.

    So Animal House, Caddyshack and Trading Places have lost their shine for you? I don't want to live in that world.

    not 80s, but I showed by high school-age sisters Best In Show the other day and it did feel a lot less funny than I remembered it

    Best in Show is a favorite - havent watched any Guest movies in awhile though. Depressing.

    Best in Show is my favorite Guest movie, followed by For Your Consideration.

    this thread reminded me of how ryan north once did a page-by-page review of the absolutely bonkers back to the future novelization, which is lovely and 100% worth reading

    Jennifer Connolly is a yes. Andrew McCarthy is a no. Terrible actor and the best he ever was was in Weekend at Bernie's
