Paint chips and the quality of movies

Jeffrey Augustine

Did your makers of the “90 Essential Movies” eat paint chips as kids? Why?

Well, because it appears that one of the arguably funniest movies of the decade didn’t make it to the list. “Tommy Boy,” the most essential movie of the teenage/young adult movie genre, in my view, did not make the list.

Chris Farley was the John Belushi of the ’90s, and since his movie of the ’80s, “Animal House,” would have easily made the top movies of its decade, Chris should be remembered, too.

I know how tough it could be to find the top movies of the decade.

However, you found some pretty weak ones compared to the obvious choice of “Tommy Boy.”

I do believe the list was great for the most part; it just lacked this great movie.
