Back to School

Back to School-1986, directed by Alan Metter, starring Rodney Dangerfield, Robert Downey Jr., Ned Beatty, Sam Kinnison, and Kurt Vonnegut
Maltin says-  Bombastic, uneducated, self-made millionaire enrolls in college, in order to encourage his student son.  Very entertaining comedy, full of hilarious Dangerfield one-liners, but key to the film's success is that Rodney's character is so likable.  Kellerman shines too, as English professor who becomes the apple of his eye.  3 stars.

Grant says- This was a fun movie that begged one question: how did Rodney Dangerfield graduate in 1 semester?  And no, that isn't a spoiler, as the poster shows all.  Look out for Oingo Boingo, and a really odd hairstyle on Robert Downey Jr.  3 stars
