Release: Friday, May 17, 1991 [YouTube] Written by: Tom Schulman Directed by: Frank Oz Given the career Frank Oz has been able to enjoy over the span of some 40 years, a gentle comedy like What About Bob? tends to get lost in the shuffle.

Release: Friday, January 15, 1993 [Netflix] Written by: John Patrick Shanley Directed by: Frank Marshall I love a good survival story and while Alive certainly fits the description of survival story it's neither a good movie nor one that I will ever love -- a would-be toe-curling drama watered down by perhaps the softest R-rating in the history of cinema. … Continue reading February Blindspot: Alive (1993)
