Johnny Dangerously (1984) - "You shouldn't have shot me, Johnny. My grandmother shot me once. Once!"



Michael Keaton stats in this 1984 comedy from director Amy Heckerling ("Fast Times At Ridgemont High", "European Vacation" and "Clueless"). It's a spoof on the crime/gangster movies of the 30s. Keaton stars as a good, honest man who is forced to turn to a life of crime to pay his mother's medical bills and send his younger brother through law school.



Trailer:




Danny DeVito, Marilu Henner, Joe Piscopo, Maureen Stapleton, Griffin Dunne, Peter Boyle, Ray Walston and Dom DeLuise co-star.

I'm glad you know the movie. So many don't, unfortunately. I saw it in the theater.

I'm new so I know this is totally random, but OMG I LOVE Johnny Dangerously! I was cracking up just the other day randomly quoting Maroni. "You fargin' sneaky bastage!" Haha!

Maureen Stapleton is hilarious as the mom. The courthouse cleaning lady is awful -- and still cracks me up anyway! lol And the sight gags are subtle but hilarious. I know Airplane gets all the glory, but to me JD is funnier. (No offense to any Airplane fans!)

Sorry -- I was just surfing the threads and happened upon this one. I haven't seen anyone reference JD in ages, let alone just stumble upon fellow fans of it!

No need to apologize - posting is what we're here for. Glad you stopped by. I am also glad to see another JD fan.

Yes, Maroni was hysterical at how he fouled up the English language and curse words. Lol.

I loved Piscopo in it too. I don't think you hear those words too often.

I love this line in the movie:

Danny Vermin: "I've been fulfilling a lot of people's prophecies about me. I've become a real scumbag."

Joe Piscopo was pretty cool before he got a big head and started getting muscles.
