OK, I'm sorry. I had no idea my John Hughes grudge would get me in more trouble than my Scorsese grudge.

I'll admit this: I haven't seen Planes, Trains, and Automobiles.. and I haven't seen Sixteen Candles or the Breakfast Club. I know I know I know I'm sorry I'm making an assumption based on a few bad movies I've seen, but right now I don't think I can tolerate his style without cringing.

I like him....sometimes....He is THE 80's comedy-man Nr.1....But i dont like his recent work. But he seems like a nice guy and he plays the banjo  :-D

I think Steve Martin *can* be very funny, given the right script and ensemble of actors. I also had that fondness with Three Amigos when I was little  :-D

No, you are not. Alright, haven't bought, but have seen four times and love.

Also The Man is one of my favourite Steve Martins. Totally absurd and yet oh so charming. There are few films of his that I have seen that I haven't enjoyed, even that one with Goldie Hawn. All Of Me and Roxanne I would always watch.

I think Steve Martin has the "lets put on an Adam Sandler" factor that PTA mentioned, for me.

I love Roxanne, especially the semi-fight scene with the sporting equipment.

I recently saw "A strange twist of fate" and wasnt quite sure what to think of it. In some ways it was a nice little film, in other ways I just think the script was just too bad. Cool ending though...well I didnt see it coming.

I would love "Roxanne" if it wasn't for Darryl Hannah, who besides having a man's name (and a redneck man's name at that), is perhaps my least favorite actress of all time.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Same as budgie, although the number of viewing might be more.

I probably saw this film before I saw most of the other films the clips were taken from, and I still think of Steve Martin in drag pretending to be James Cagney's mother whenever I watch "White Heat". This film ruined my enjoyment of classic noirs... but in a good way.

Three Amigos was just on tv. Just had to go with it. I love the guy who plays El Guapo, and Martin Short was excellent, specially in spoofing/homaging the silent acting style.

Funny, I was just wondering if anyone else here has seen Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid.  Now that's an original movie.  Too, too funny, too.  I was flipping through the channels one night a couple years back, and got to AMC, and was wondering, "hey, what's Steve Martin doing in a black and white film?"  Classic.

I adore that movie! "You don't DESERVE a puppy..."

My favourite Steve Martin has got to be LA Story though: it did what American Beauty did eight years later, but much funnier...
