Loved this movie as a kid!! Now I'm here to watch it again.
This is an all-time classic. Dom DeLuise was a fantastic drag queen XD
I've been revisiting a lot of childhood favorites lately. Last night I was bored after kinda getting ditched while talking to someone, so I decided to throw on something funny.

I remember so much of this movie scaring me when I was 4 and 5. The werewolf always creeped me out. I swear I haven't seen this in about 10 years...I never realized when I was little that it was a comedy.

I still enjoy it. Gene Wilder is one of my favorite, and is quite funny in this.

I can't stand Gilda Radner, though, and her little dance with Dom Deluise really bugged me.

Anyways, I still enjoy it. Nothing groundbreaking or laugh-your-ass-off hilarious, but it's fun, light entertainment with quite a neat concept.
8 1/2 is made up of beautiful cinematography and gorgeously constructed shots. The opening sequence is especially famous, and rightly so, but my favorite involved the Cardinal in the bath house. Awesome. This is my second Federico Fellini ("La Dolce Vita") film, the other being Amaracord. I enjoyed this one much more, but I am still not in love. The story follows a director who has no idea what the movie he's making is actually about. But that's not really the focus. While trying to escape the demands of his career, the director, Guido, resorts to idyllic flashbacks and fantasies usually centered around the women in his life. And I guess that's my main problem, not enough story structure. (And Fellini has this weird thing about women) I found myself tiring of the story but still amazed by all the beautiful pictures filling up the screen.

Haunted Honeymoon was one of my most favorite movies when I was younger, and, upon revisiting it, I found I still loved it. But when I looked it up on imdb, it only has a 4.5 rating. Which makes me sad . Written, directed by and staring Gene Wilder, this film made me laugh out loud several times, and just grin at it's melodrama the rest of it. Wilder costars with wife Gilda Radner (Honeymoon is listed as her last film on imdb) and a cross-dressing Dom DeLuise. Wilder and Radner play mystery theater radio stars who are to be wed at his family's castle. But as the wedding day approaches, Wilder is overcome with bouts of irrational fear. His family secretly plans to cure him by scaring him to death. But a real murderer is also on the prowl. Eccentric family members and melodramatic settings abound. This is just good times.
I can only take so much of Gene Wilder's brand of humor, and only when it is directed by a competent director, rather than himself. Gilda radner is wasted, and when Dom De Luise in drag isn't funny, something is seriously wrong. This is a stupid and not very funny comedy.

Written and Directed by Michel Gondry.
Rated PG-13 (for some sexual references).

Such talent. Such potential. Such mediocrity.

Haunted Honeymoon could've been so great and so funny, but it's only okay and slightly amusing. Gene Wilder is a comedian I always enjoy, and here I found him sort of boring. DeLuise's stunt turn as Aunt Katherine is the only real joy I found here. He's hilarious. I don't really know what else to say. It's a mixed bag. Some actually hate it with a fierce passion, but I found some portions amusing. I don't know. ** (out of ****) C
Funny and creepy, and all around fun. Haunted Honeymoon is a winner!
This movie was hilarious.
