Episode 86: Night Shift (1982)

nightshiftWe're headed back to the 80s for two forgotten comedy classics in this pairing, lovingly referred to as "Prostitution Comedies." First up, it was supposed to be Henry Winkler's anti-typecasting break-out performance, but no one told his co-star, Michael Keaton, in 1982's "Night Shift!" Directed by (at that point) first-time director Ron Howard, co-starring Shelley Long and Gina Hecht, and featuring appearances from Basil Hoffman, Jaid Barrymore, Richard Belzer, Charles Fleischer, Kevin Costner, Vincent Schiavelli, and a very young Shannen Doherty, this movie takes a buddy-comedy premise and pairs it with a romantic comedy, while doing justice to both story types! It's a love story, it's a fish-out-of-water story, and in many ways it's a nebbish-becoming-a-hero story as well! Plus, it features some truly wonderful (and very 80s) music to accompany the improbable story!
