McNeil's Movie Korner
"McNeil's Movie Korner"! Say, do you like boxing movies starring Bob Hope and Mickey Rooney? What? You don't? That sounds like a sane attitude! But then you must not be McNeil, who recommends OFF LIMITS, which he claims is available for "instant viewing" on the "internet." I cross-checked McNeil's recommendation with imdb, which reports that the tagline for OFF LIMITS was "It's Hilarious!" A staff of professionals put a lot of work into that tagline, so who am I to doubt? The more perverse of us may wish to indulge in another "streaming video" experience uncovered by McNeil: the Arthur Marx-penned EIGHT ON THE LAM, by all accounts a notorious low point for poor old Bob and the arts in general. BUT! That's what they tried to tell me about BOY, DID I GET A WRONG NUMBER!
