Better Off Dead...
Comedy • PG • 1985 • 1 hr 37 min
More a collection of bits and sketches loosely grouped than a traditional film, but free spirted & unique for an 80s teen comedy
Hilarious classic with a dark sense of humor
This and One Crazy Summer were some of my fav go-to LOL movies of the 80s. Both Savage Steve Holland creations had such quotable material.
Such a great, oddball romance movie, with stellar direction and a fun group of characters
The epitome ￼of dark comedy, ironically campy and must watch.
Fun movie, in the same class as “Ferris Buellers Day Off”, and nearly as funny. Captures a lot of teenage insecurity and makes it comical.
After all these years and it’s still funny to watch. The humor captures the insecurity’s of anybody who’s ever fell in love.
It’s another 80s teen rom-com, but it’s so quotable and fun. Just watch it for the comedic details and forget the main plot. Hilarious!
One of the best comedies of the 80s!!! Must See.
It has the spirit of a Nihilist, the mind of a Daydreamer, and the body of a sloppy, love-stricken teen comedy. Reason eclipsed by chaos.
