THE MAN WITH TWO BRAINS - Steve Martin - "Screw Top, Zip Lock Brain Surgery" (1983)

I didn't intentionally mean to do two mad scientist comedies in a row, but then I didn't mean to do my taxes either! Tonight's feature should probably be a Saturday Night Special, but because there is no schedule or concept. tonight's fully whacked out feature is:
"The Man With Two Brains!"

"The Man With Two Brains" came out in 1983! I just saw it last week because I only have one brain, and I think it's starting to malfunction!

Directed and produced by Carl Reiner, and starring and co-written by Steve Martin, that's a major pile of laugh power! Right out of the box, there's this scene where there is an accident and Steve Martin tells this little girl to go get some medical help, and she recites all the medical jargon back to him perfectly, and then some!

There's lots of sight gags!

More sight gags!

Steve Martin is a brain surgeon named Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr, and there is always this cat in the operating room during surgery!

Dr. Hfuhruhurr's favorite movie is "Donovan's Brain!"

In a nutshell, the Doctor hit money-grubbin' Dolores Benedict (Kathleen Turner) with his car in the beginning of the movie. She now has a plate in her head, and they are about to get married, but even though her brain doesn't work 100% correctly, she is still in it for the money!

Tension ensues!

Sexual tension ensues!!

And then the Doctor meets somebody else. The only problem is that she doesn't have a body! I say "The Man With Two Brains" owes quite a little bit to "The Brain That Wouldn't Die!"

I give this movie extra big kudos for carrying on the tradition of the Gorilla Suit in the movies!

The woman he loves has no body!

His wife has no brain!

This gal looked like she was going to be the perfect body candidate for a brain transplant until she opened up her mouth and had the most annoying voice ever!

Steve Martin looking demonic as Hell!

The serial killer turns out to be marvelous Merv Griffin!

This is one tough D.U.I. test!!

"The Man With Two Brains" is funny, it's stupid, it's Steve Martin, and if you want to laugh your ass off, it's a no brainer!!!

A lot of the time I don't go in for celebrity cameos, at least not the kind where the celebrities play THEMSELVES. But Merv Griffin as "The Elevator Killer" is a huge exception to that.

Thanx Grant! I always thought Merv Griffin was a good sport!
