This was the last movie I watched in 2023, part of a WP a friend of mine hosted. I haven't seen this since it originally came out and was surprised how well it help up. It's absolutely packed with talented people being silly.

Good to hear it's aged well. I've had it in mind for a rewatch for years, not having seen it since the first time in the mid 80s.

Just based on the initial description, I expected this to be a spin-off of Children's Hospital. But wow, what a cast!
