Funny Farm & A Fish Called Wanda - very funny.

A number of memorable films from summer of '88! You should compare the 2008 slate with the 1988 slate when summer's over.

Many sequels Way Back When. I loved A Fish Called Wanda, too. Didn't we watch it at Rick's house one time?

Funny Farm rocked. I too am a lamb fries champion from way back. The secret is to snip 'em way up high.
