It's a screening log, no more no less. Maybe I'll have something interesting to say one of these days...

Barroom Buddies.

Bronco Billy (Eastwood, 1980)

A completely enjoyable, good hearted comedy about family, Eastwood's light 1980 homage to cowboys and screwball comedies is subtly self reflexive. Playing off his well worn persona, Eastwood the director has a sure hand with another in his long line of misfit families. The supporting cast are all great, especially Scatman Crothers as Billy's Master of Ceremonies.

Eastwood has such a good hand at comedy, you wish he would try it more often(and with better writing than the horrible comic relief in Million Dollar Baby).
