Clearly, viewers either love or hate this movie (by ctnow)
Even among Steve Martin fans, there are those who love his "zany" work MWTB, the Jerk , and consider his more "commercial" hits All of Me etc a sellout, and those who see it the exact opposite.I love this movie. I am amazed when I view it for the 73rd time and still fall down laughing.I hope saying this doesn't sound smug, but I suspect those who don't find it funny are missing a lot of the jokes. The fast pace and dry delivery of a lot of hysterical lines are the best part of the movie.I'm a Steve Martin fan, and this is easily my favorite Steve Martin <more>
movie and possibly my favorite movie of all time - being able to always make me laugh no matter how down I am is worth a lot!
I don't know why but it seems that what is 'funny'is about the most difficult thing to agree on. For me, I can count really funny films on two hands dirty rotten scoundrels; planes, trains and automobiles;marx bros., woody allen,big business; romy and michelle's high school reunion; liar,liar ; monty python's holy grail, and now, The Man With Two Brains . I can't believe i missed seeing this film up to now, and i'm so glad it was on some film person's recommended list because i have just finished an hour and a half of continuous laughs. what a treat of a <more>
screenplay.steve martin is the naive simpleton brain surgeon who gets taken in by devilish scheming wicked witch kathleen turner such a beauty .a lot of visual gags but it's the wordplay that makes it so continuously funny. see the discussions part of this site for many of the funniest lines Boring? No Way. a 10 for me.
"I told them to leave out the *probably*!" (by Bacterium)
This is, unlike most of Steve Martin's subsequent movies, actually funny. Hang on, not just funny, it's hilarious. There is not a dull moment. From the conversation with his dead wife's portrait to the "sex" scene by the Austrian lake this film will keep you in stitches.
Ranks Right Up There With Martin's Funniest (by ccthemovieman-1)
Here is another Carl Reiner-directed "farce" that also stars Steve Martin the two collaborated before in the '80s in "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid" . This is the best of that duo with a lot of laugh-out loud scenes. There are tons of gags, both obvious and subtle. In fact, I think is one of Martin's funniest performances. Kathleen Turner, his co-star here, played a similar role in another black comedy "Serial Mom." There, too, she played a woman who appeared to be nice on the outside but was evil inside. Turner also liked to show a lot of skin in those <more>
'80s flicks, which included "Body Heat."I had remembered this as a strictly light comedy but was surprised when I viewed it again this year and heard all the sex jokes. Reiner turned out to be a dirty old man but he write and direct some very funny movies. It's unusual for a comedy to be rated "R," but that was the appropriate rating. If you know and don't care if its a bit raunchy, this is a very funny movie.
If you like funny, any kind of funny, watch this movie. I don't think you need to like Steve Martin's humor to enjoy this. Silly, goofy, crazy, sight gags...whatever...I laughed my butt off. To me, Steve Martin is always hilarious but Kathleen Turner, too, is very funny, not to mention sexy. I do think most people will find this movie to be very, very funny.
A total gut buster (by Woodyanders)
Brilliant prominent brain surgeon Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr Steve Martin in peak zany form is stuck in a bad marriage with the beautiful, but evil and frosty gold digger Dolores Benedict Kathleen Turner at her most insanely hot and divinely wicked . Things perk up for Michael when he meets and falls in love with sharp and charming female brain Anne Uumellmehaye marvelously voiced with sweet aplomb by an uncredited Sissy Spacek . But now Michael has to find the perfect body for Anne before it's too late. Director Carl Reiner, who co-wrote the blithely nutty script with Martin and George <more>
Gage, keeps the pace hurtling along at a nonstop snappy rate and infuses the whole show with an infectiously screwball anything-for-a-laugh kooky sensibility that pokes witty and often hilarious affectionate fun at cheesy Grade B sci-fi fare. The consistently sidesplitting humor ranges from broad Michael as a human pinball to raunchy to flat-out brilliant Merv Griffin's inspired surprise cameo as the notorious Elevator Killer . Amidst all the sublime silliness we've got an utterly absurd, yet warm and touching love story between a man and a brain in a jar. The first-rate cast all give terrifically lively and enthusiastic performances: Martin certainly earns his early reputation as a wild and crazy guy with his frenzied portrayal of Michael, Turner plays the femme fatale to the deliciously nasty hilt, plus there are fine supporting contributions from David Warner as droll mad scientist Dr. Alfred Necessiter, Paul Benedicts as Necessiter's snooty butler, and Richard Prestoff as Michael's jolly superior Dr. Pasteur. Popping up in nifty bits are James Cromwell as a realtor, Earl Boen as a fellow brain surgeon Felix Conrad, Jeffrey Combs as assistant Dr. Jones, and George Furth as elderly millionaire Timon. The gorgeous Randi Brooks has a memorably sexy small part as Fran, an airhead hooker who has a fantastic body, but an extremely irritating squeaky voice. Michael Chapman's crisp cinematography gives the picture an attractive polished look. Joel Goldsmith's spirited, flavorsome score likewise does the trick. An absolute hoot.
Policeman: "That woman's not drunk, she's dead!" Dr Michael Hfuhruhurr: "Oh, i better get her to a cemetary right away!"Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr: The only time we doctors should accept death is when it's caused by our own incompetence. Shameless madcap farce from Director Carl Reiner The Jerk, All of Me, Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid, That Old Feeling is part romance melodrama, part sex comedy, part thriller, part medical drama, and all silliness. Yet it uses this silliness to touch on a fairly risque philosophical issue - what exactly makes us human? Kathleen <more>
Turner is in temptress mode as Martin's new wife who lives to torment men, and forces Martin to seek comfort elsewhere... with a brain in a jar!Anne Uumellmahaye: I don't think there's a girl floating in a jar anywhere who's as happy as I am.You have to admire the over-the-top and on-the-edge comedy pairing of Reiner and Martin which produces genuine hilarity, letting-loose fun and general enjoyment for a nice friday night hour and a half good length too! .Two thumbs way-up!
One of the most underrated comedies of all time (by forehead1)
An extremely funny movie, it deserves to be up there with Airplane! and The Naked Gun in the best 'stupid-funny' films of all time.Steve Martin excels as the surgeon who falls in love with a dis-membered brain, and Kathleen Turner is perfect for the heartless gold-digger wife role she is given.I am amazed at how many people have never heard of this film, let alone seen it. Go watch it now - I guarantee you'll be quoting it for months.
Martin's second most wackiest comedy (by mtiller12)
This is most indeed Steve Martin's second most wackiest comedy after "The Jerk". Everything about this movie has zip, craze and certain kind of frantic in the pace, which makes for an absouloutley lovable comedy. The story centers round Dr Michael Hfuhruhurr Steve Martin , spelt Haf-far, he is most probaly the worlds greatest brain surgeon, he is rich and famous. But Michael has emotional problems and his wife died some time ago, though lucky Michael ends up meeting the evil, sexy and seductive Delores Kathleen Turner , who is a gold digging "Scum queen". They <more>
supposedly fall in love and get married, though Michael sensing some problems thinks it is going down hill and thinks a honey moon to Europe would help and so he and Delores go. The Man With Two Brains has two stories, one involves what I said above and another takes place around Europe where Michael ends up falling in love with his research, a human brain! It is Romeo and Juliet as their love is forbiden and Michael goes to extreme lengths to ensure they remain in each others arms, okay that was a bad excuse. What makes The Man With Two Brains so great is the colourful, eighties, eneergetic look that adds the crazy wack to the movie. There are many comedic sets in the movie e.g the condo, scenes in Hfuhrhurr 's hospital. Any movie in which Steve Martin stars is bound to be watchable, but what Martin did back here was he would overact a lot more, he would not do his everyman thing, he is indeed crazy, his eyes in this movie shows a locked up genius with a crazy edge. The character of Hfuhruhurr is a very unlikeable person, but with Martin playing him he is the good guy, he makes you want to come out of this with his loved one. Kathleen Turner is also a comic delight as she does a little micky take of "Body Heat". Screen play wise this is also one of Martin's best as it is witty and full of excellent scenarios. As with any classic comedy there has to be a funny scene that stands above the rest, the scene at the beginning in the car is excellent, Hfuhrhurr: "Can you tell me what you wrote, I believe I may have sounded snobbish?" Interviwer: "My research is the some of the greastest the world has ever seen and in that way will proably so ever plant my reputation as a great proffesor for all eterntity" Hfuhrhurr:"No it didn't sound snobbish... Take out the probably though. Makes me sound wishy washy." Now that is excellent Martin, he does it with every film, not everyody would get that. Another hilarious thing about this movie is it's music, it is so corny and cheesy but without sounding annoying it is just plain funny. Bottom line is, this is one of Martin's landmark films, a film which has visula look, brilliant pacing, trademark manic peformance by Martin and memorbale scenes that stick in the mind. Absoloutley wack, crazy, wild, funny and hilarious.
