this is a bit of a generalization. i do have specific opinions. to be clear, i thought “this is spinal tap” was really stupid. but i loved “when harry met sally” and “the princess bride.” those are two of my favorite movies of all time. i thought “misery,” “a few good men,” and “stand by me” were quite good. “the american president” was pretty good–entertaining. i have not seen “north” or “the sure thing.” i have not seen any of his work from before “this is spinal tap” and only a couple of his movies from more recently, which were just ok. but it must be said that “when harry met sally” and “the princess bride” are both brilliantly clever movies.
