Good show once again. Man that Paul Newman film looked bad, although i have not seen it. I rather enjoyed Tom Hanks and Splash from Ron Howard. I thought it was quite a sweet comedy. It’s a bit funny to hear Hanks critiqued unfavorably. Considering the great career he has carved out since then.

I saw Splash in the theater, and John Candy was funny... much, much more than Tom Hanks. I haven’t had the desire to see it anymore though.

I agree with everything Roger said about "Angel", a truly underrated gem. "Harry & son" is as bad as Roger said, who wants to see Newman like this. Actually, I think they are all wet about "Splash", still it’s refreshing a time when Tom Hanks could get a bad review, I agree with Gene that Michael Keaton would have been better. I never understood the appeal of "Liquid Sky", the Felini film, which I missed, looks interesting, sorry that it’s probably not.

Liquid Sky is no fun to watch. The director was trying to be artybut failed.

In retrospect, the negative critiques of Tom Hanks in Splash is quite interesting. I loved him in it. Little did they know at the time that Hanks would become the Jimmy Stewart of our generation...respected and loved as an actor and person. I thought Hanks played it perfectly. I wonder if S&E ever looked back at Splash and changed their minds?

It’s funny how they were pretty negative on Steve Martin and Tom Hanks early on. But Ebert did go against the grain and like Bachelor Party and Dragnet, even before Tom Hanks’ breakout role in Big. Steve Martin got his first good review from Ebert this same year with All of Me and he would continue giving Steve Martin nearly all good reviews for 10 years.

"Uh, sir, phrenology was dismissed as quackery 160 years ago."

"Of course you’d say that. You have the brainpan of a stagecoach tilter!"
