I always thought Ishtar was hilarious. It didn't need to cost the bazillion dollars it did, but I hooted over the songwriting efforts.

You and Judy are in agreement.

I call TOTAL BULLSH!T.

No comment on Judy's favorite, but some of the others? Seriously? He's just trying to be contrary, right? HUDSON HAWK? Puke. NEW YORK, NEW YORK was just awful, possibly worse than HEAVEN'S GATE.

No amount of rethinking or rediscovery is going to make them good. They suck.

I always thought I was one of the few who truly hated HUDSUCKER with a passion normally reserved for AMERICAN BEAUTY but I'm glad to see others agree.

Saw HUDSUCKER in the theater. Couldn't believe it was so bad. Same for NEW YORK, NEW YORK.

Hm...haven't seen HUDSUCKER, but given how ridiculously popular for no good reason O BROTHER WHERE ART THOU was (as opposed to the genuinely good, and funny, RAISING ARIZONA and, in considerable part, FARGO and BARTON FINK), I'll buy they came up with an even more dire comedy...without even the good (vs. the just OK, also presented) bluegrass score.

However, JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS is indeed almost good.
