Janne the Director’s Favorite Rare Movies Top 100 List #86: The Lonely Guy (1984)

March 29, 2011

“Whatever happened to Steve Martin? He used to be so funny!”

Yeah, I know that has become a cliché thing to say but most people who say that haven’t seen his earlier work. You know, the same people that say “Saturday Night Live used to be good and now it’s SHIT” when in reality they’ve only seen old sketches on YouTube or “Best of SNL”-shows. I dare you to say that after suffering through an entire unedited old Garrett Morris-heavy episode and compare it to today’s SNL with Andy Samberg and friends…

With that said: I do however prefer old Steve Martin movies by miles compared to movies made by anybody from the resent years of SNL.

So if you ever want to know why people keep saying, “Whatever happened to Steve Martin?” you should watch ¡Three Amigos! or this one. This is the Twilight Zone movie for singles. Ever felt like you are alone when you are lonely? Well there are others that is just as lonely that you can be lonely with!
