An aging comic icon, Jackie (Robert De Niro), has seen better days.

Already a strain on his younger brother (Danny DeVito) and his wife (Patti LuPone), Jackie is forced to serve out a sentence doing community service for accosting an audience member. While there, he meets Harmony (Leslie Mann), the daughter of a sleazy Florida real estate mogul (Harvey Keitel), and the two find inspiration in one another, resulting in surprising consequences.

24 Hour Party People (2002) Trailer

24 Hour Party People

 The unbelievably true story of one man, one movement, the music and madness that was Manchester.

24 Hour Party People is a 2002 British comedy-drama film about Manchester's popular music community from 1976 to 1992, and specifically about Factory Records.

Watch the Trailer!

An ingenious docudrama on the Manchester music scene of the 1980s and '90s. 24 Hour Party People traces the rise and fall of bands like Joy Division, New Order, and Happy Mondays--bands whose success in the U.S. was limited, but whose impact in Europe (and England in particular) was phenomenal. It all centers around the record label that spawned these bands, Factory Records, and its impresario Tony Wilson (Steve Coogan), a man both ludicrous in his self-absorption and brilliant in his willingness to go out on a limb for bands he likes. Coogan, a British comic, gives a remarkable and deeply funny performance that manages to be simultaneously sincere and ironic. The movie communicates what was great about this time without any false majesty--the squalor and disasters are as crucial to this portrait as the wild successes. The soundtrack, of course, is superb.

Tunnel Vision (1976) Trailer

Tunnel Vision

More laughs per ounce! New and improved!

TunnelVision (also known as Tunnel Vision) is a satirical 1976 comedy anthology film featuring Roger Bowen, Chevy Chase, John Candy, Howard Hesseman, Joe Flaherty, Laraine Newman, Betty Thomas, Phil Proctor, Al Franken, Ron Silver, Tom Davis, and Michael Overly, with appearances by noted voiceover artists Ernie Anderson and Danny Dark. 

Watch the Trailer!

Humor wasn't very PC in the 70's. Or, oftentimes, very funny. But this darker, meaner Groove Tube knockoff definitely had its moments. From Neal Israel, who later directed the eerily prescient (though much more chipper) "Americathon".
