In his review of 'The Sandlot,' Roger Ebert called the 1993 comedy "the summertime version of 'A Christmas Story.' The venerable critic was certainly onto something there, as both movies take nostalgic looks back at more innocent times and each rely heavily on the talents of its child actor cast.
'The Goonies' was an ensemble movie all the way, and the seven actors who played the ragtag gang of young treasure hunters all delivered memorable performances. In fact, most of them used 'The Goonies' as a springboard into long careers in TV and film, and even the ones who didn't have found success in other venues.
Remember 'The Rocketeer?' The movie, which was based on the graphic novel by Dave Stevens, was somewhat of a flop when it came out in 1991, but the tale of a handsome 1930s era test pilot (Billy Campbell) who uses a rocket suit to fight Nazis and mobsters has become somewhat of a cult classic over the years.
'Planes, Trains & Automobiles' was the first John Hughes-directed film to focus on adults, rather than teenagers.
In the 1987 comedy, Steve Martin and John Candy play business travelers with the very adult problem of trying to get home during the crush of Thanksgiving travel. The mismatched pair get into a variety of misadventures during their three day trip from New York to Chicago. When they finally arrive, the film ends on a touching Thanksgiving-appropriate note.
In November, Ashley Warden was fined $2,500 when a police officer spotted her three-year old son urinating on the front yard of her two-and-a-half acre property in rural Piedmont, Oklahoma. The cop was ultimately fired for issuing the ticket. But apparently Warden still holds a grudge against law enforcement, which she made known through a recent post to her Facebook page.
World War II veteran John Potter is in the process of being evicted from the Zaleski, Ohio house he built 56 years ago. But the villain of this story isn't some heartless bank bureaucrat. Instead it's Potter own daughter, Janice Cottrill, who's using the power of attorney that Potter had given to her to throw her father out on the street.
