Cine-Lit Podcast Ep.17: 80s Comedy Movies with Director Dominic Burns

Adam and Darrell are joined by film director and proud Derby lad, Dominic Burns, to explore an area of cinema that Dom is very passionate about. The 80s!

As the world reels from the shockwaves of Lockdown and the COVID-19 pandemic, more than ever we need the power of a good comedy. The discussion here takes in 5 great films from the 1980s that may have escaped your notice.

We look at Ruthless People (1986) with Danny DeVito and Bette Midler, Richard Pryor in Brewster's Millions (1985), John Candy and Dan Ackroyd in The Great Outdoors (1988), Richard Dreyfuss in Let It Ride (1989) and Joe Dante's The Burbs (1989).
