That is because Rushmore sucks and, having noticed this, we are better prepared to see a good comedy for what it is.

I think we've all learned that Junior's comedic sensibilities are severely lacking at times.

Not true.

Good things:
Arrested Development
Futurama

Bad things:
South Park
Seinfeld

See. Perfectly reasonable.

I guess I need to revisit Ghost Dog, I remember thinking it was OK but certainly not 6th round material.

Nothing wrong with the things you like, it's just the ones you don't like that you're wrong about.

I don't quite think it's 6th round material either.  Definitely 4th round, though, at the least.

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

I guess it had an easier playoff schedule than...say...I don't know...Dead Man;)

I'm maybe alone here in preferring Ghost Dog to Dead Man.  I find the same kinds of flaws in both, but they seem more pronounced in the earlier film, to me.

...I need to watch it again.

Only one film put me to sleep, and it wasn't Ghost Dog.  I should probably give Dead Man another shot.

That may be, I just remember Dead Man being such an intense visceral experience, and Ghost Dog being a bit of a novelty. But it's been a while and I should probably see it again. I'm of course getting us off-topic here 'cause DM is long gone.
