Crazy grandpa, suicidal uncle, fighting parents, and an entirely inappropriate dance routine. Just remember: it's the journey, not the destination.
Few action comedies manage to be effective both as action movies and comedies, but Midnight Run pulls it off. Plus, unlike the comedies De Niro has been making since the late 90s, his character here isn't merely a parody of his best-known characters.
Endlessly watchable, this one boasts a terrific comic duo in Steve Martin and John Camdy and is about as perfect as comedies come.
This counterculture classic was one of the harbingers of the New Hollywood phase and remains a touchstone film today.
One of my favourite movies ever. Capra. Gable. Colbert. Perfection.
