I shop for movies a lot. It brings me peace. I don't have any really cool little movie shops like Waterloo Records and Video where I can discover rare movies or peruse the Criterion selection. Me, I have BestBuy. And when that doesn't suffice, I go to deepdiscountdvd.com.
Anyways, every time I go to BestBuy, I always first shop in the bargain bins, looking for a great movie that's a steal. Or getting pissed because I didn't wait on Goodfellas and paid $20 for the DVD instead of the sale price of $11.99. And the past few times there has been a DVD in the bargain bin that has caused me great dilemma. That DVD is The Cannonball Run. Burt and Dom lay in that bin, staring up at me saying "remember us? the semi-modern day Laurel and Hardy? Buy. Buy. Buy." So I succumb to the urge and I place it in the shopping cart. I walk around some more and by the end of my trip, The Cannonball Run ends up on a shelf in the drama section right behind Do The Right Thing or something like that.
I want to, but I can't seem to do it. I remember the movie fondly. Fast cars, that crazy Proctologist, Farrah, Burt and Dom, Sammy and Dean. But that was some time ago. Maybe it hasn't aged well. But maybe it has. So I place this decision before you. My $5.99 is at your mercy.
Is The Cannonball Run a comedic steal or should I instead by a turkey on rye with a nice piece of cheese, easy on the mayo.
