I want to vote for Coming to America, but I've never seen Coming to America.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Didn't he do one called Slasher? Because I liked that one. Not as much as Animal House, but still...

Coming to America, but I've never seen Animal House which I understand is a big deal.

Didn't he do one of the Twilight Zone segments?

Coming to America

You must be outta yo goddamn mind!  Joe Louis is the greatest boxer that ever lived!  He was bad as Sugar Ray!  He was bad as Cassius Clay!  He was bad as... who dat new boy! Mike Tyson!  Make him look like a bulldog!

What about Rocky Marciano! 

Oh, there dey go!  Everytime I start talking about boxing, a white man pulls out Rocky Mariciano!  Dat dey want!  Dat dey want!  Rocky Mariciano!  Rocky Marciano!  Now Rocky Marciano is good but compared to Joe Louis, he ain't shit!! 

He did beat Louis' ass! 

That's right, he did! 

Joe Louis was 75 years old!!!

Man, you ain't never met Frank Sinatra! 

CINECAST! you, CINECAST! you, and CINECAST! you!  Now who next?

Really tough choice between Animal House and Blues Brothers, but I'll give the narrow edge to Jake and Elwood Blues if only for the soundtrack. Plus, they're endorsed by God.

An American Werewolf in London. No question in my mind.
