DC CAB
Friday, February 15, 2013 / Midnite


Call dispatch and get ready for the wildest ride in D.C. — that’s District of Comedy, fool! The zaniest bunch of ragtag misfits ever assembled must battle topless dancers, brutal kidnappers, the taxicab commission and more boneheaded hilarity to collect their fare and save their hides. Fifteen years before Batman & Robin, director Joel Schumacher had already perfected his ability to put together a top-notch, no-holds-barred WTF cast: the no-relation-to-the-Baldwin-brothers Adam Baldwin, the terrifyingly spastic Gary Busey, a synthesizer-wielding Bill Maher, the hulkazoid Barbarian Brothers and motherfuckin’ MR. T! And that’s not even mentioning Barney Miller’s Max Gail, legendary NYC comedian Charlie Barnett, Paul “A Million to Juan” Rodriguez, Sanford & Son’s Whitman Mayo, Andy Kaufman’s partner-in-crime Bob Zmuda, or Irene Care as HERSELF. If you don’t want to see a cast like that star in an R-rated early-’80s comedy, check your pulse — you’re probably dead! NOTE: the start time of this screening will actually be 12:15AM.
Dir. Joel Schumacher, 1983, 35mm, 100 min.
