    Pretty much everything from the 80's except for Caddyshack,Vacation and Fletch. There are movies I liked as a kid, say...Eddie Murphy's 1983-87 films, Police Academy 1-4 or John Candy's movies and I find them horrifically unfunny and impossible to watch now.

    Don't feel that way about Private Parts though...I thought it sucked in '97.

    one of my favorites as a kid.

    the other night i saw in on netflix instant and i couldn't make it through five minutes.

    'predator', however, holds up.

    Agreed on Eddie Murphy.

    I watched Raw and Delirious in the late 90s for the first time and i thought it sucked.

    Never, ever got the Eddie Murphy hype. Though i like Coming to America.

    Edit: Uncle Buck and Great Outdoors suck now too.

    The Matrix sequels were awful to begin with - but the CGI rendered them unwatchable years ago.

    Both films lead to climaxes acted out by chunky clumps of polygons. It's shameful.

    When I was 10(1985-86) I thought "Delirious" was the funniest comedy special, thought 48 Hours and Beverly Hills Cop were awesome. All of the kids I hung out with did...but the more famous he got, the more unfunny he got- "Party All The Time" becoming a number 2(fittingly) single in the fall of '85 was probably a sign of the shit to follow. The last movie I saw by him in the theaters was the truly dreadful "Harlem Nights" in '89.

    I've been revisiting the movies of my youth with my kids--I challenge anyone to watch 'Meatballs" and tell me that it's still funny.

    Also, "Stir Crazy"--no laughs.

    Ghostbusters holds up as does Animal House and Hollywood Knights.

    Also, my kids thought "The Exorcist" was funny; I was really disappointed by it, because when I was a kid, I didn't sleep the night that I saw it.

    See, they moved his bed to the lake so when he wakes up...:backlol2:....yeah, Meatballs(and most Bill Murray movies in general) definitely have an expiration date of about 1981. Pretty awful.

    The only Richard Pryor movie I can still watch is Blue Collar.

    I actually prefer the Harryhausen stop-motion effects to the soulless, over-the-top, boring CGI we get today. The Clash of the Titans remake, IMO, had no teeth and no heart. Just a bunch of forgettable actors screaming in front of green screens.

    Absolutely. There's an extra otherworldly or maybe uncanny valley creepiness to Dynamation. It was never perfect, which added to the charm. (His movies, however, were all terrible.)

    It wasn't very good the first time either. (And yet it still blows away the abysmal recent remake/sequel/naptime.)
