Worth watching at least once.
1941 is a unique movie. 1 part of it is animal house-esque lowbrow humor, 1 part is B-movie love story, and 1 part stoic war movie, and 2 parts insane hilarity.
It is a weird mix to say the least.
First, the problems: 1. The first half of the movie is slow. It grinds on making you wonder why you’re watching this movie.
2. The “Love story” subplot is poorly executed for what this movie is trying to do.
3. many of the actors are not used to their fullest potential (especially Dan Akroyd and John Candy) while others receive excessive screen time. (see: The slow moving love story sub-plot) But then there are the good aspects: 1. John Belushi is hilarious. He would have been funnier had he interacted with more characters rather than appearing in many solo shots, but he was funny.
2. The “Epic Battle” was great. It had me laughing as my sides hurt.
3. Slim Pickens: His appearance in the movie was truly where the movie stopped being slow, and the fun really started. He was great in his scenes and between the dialogue and his visual scenes, you can’t help but laugh.
There’s more, but in short, if you don’t mind sitting through a slow build up, the payoff is worth the wait.
It’s not the best movie ever, but in the barren entertainment landscape that is Weekend Television: Finding this movie can be like an oasis in the desert. It’s solid Saturday afternoon fun.
DUH…just those who don’t get it say that
Gotta love this movie. No…it’s not Mad Mad Mad Mad World…but a good version set to wartime madness with great actors getting silly and caricaturing themselves. Slim Pickens stole the show, as did the entire Japanese submarine crew…especially the captain.
If you didn’t like this movie, or tried to compare it to “MASH” like one idiot here did, then you just don’t get satire at this level. You are not the target audience of this film, nor would I want you sitting next to me while this was on the screen. Nothing in this movie was meant to be serious. I guess that just aggravates people who are into serious films. As for the one guy who said something about HATING it because of Ned Beatty losing his home before Christmas and that such a loss before Christmas was inappropriate to make fun of…what?? WHAT???? Are you just plain stupid? Did you think Laurel and Hardy shorts were badly done documentaries of the 1930’s and that’s why you didn’t laugh? It’s a damned movie already…and you just don’t have 1 iota of brain to get the irony. You probably thought that the stooges used real hammers to whack themselves over the head and wondered why the ambulances didn’t show up. Get over yourself. Man, there are some stupid people out there.
*SPOILER* Yeah…the house looked a little fakey as it “blew up” falling off the cliff (you can see the charges going off) but it capped off the hysteria pretty well and shows how a little rumor of something can set off a chain reaction of craziness to follow. Belushi had a minor role and carried his part off well enough, Robert Stack was genius…especially in the Dumbo scene. Even Lenny & Squiggy’s cameo were done well. The extended version gives some added hilarity….though some of it was more fluff and you can see why it ended up on the cutting room floor. Still good to watch those extras.
As for all you Scrooges who think this is a turkey…well go rent Ishtar or Pee Wee’s Big Adventure. Like another said…grab a beer, sit back and watch this film! It’s great fun unless you are a complete prude or don’t like American’s laughing at Americans! This film will surely take any depressed old soddy mood and turn it around.
