I loved the film, at first I though it was going to be bad, but it was a lot better than what I expected.

And I must admit @Ahhh Girl is a very good actress, the way she interpreted Rosie was amazing.

I saw your comment, @Merch, and just had to watch the movie. Yep, I'm probably Rosie.

A round of applause, I think, for the wonderful Wendie Jo Sperber, who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2005 at the age of 47. I remember her more for the Back to the Future films (1st and 3rd), but Rosie was her first role, and am glad this thread reminded me of that.

Yeah, I loved Wendie Jo in everything I saw her in.

Yeah that one scene is just weird with Pam basically having sex with Paul's bass (and no I am taking about his actual bass here that was not a euphemism although I can imagine Pam was thinking that it was Paul's "bass"). 

 

I always fast-forward through it because it makes me feel like I'm watching some weird fetish crap.

 

As everyone else has said Wendie Jo Sperber steals the film, a really great performance from a woman who died far too young (and coincidentally she died on the anniversary of George's death). 

 

Bloody great film, I love it.

Carrie Fisher could have been a great Janis Goldman, and she had huge name recognition by early 1978, when the movie hit theaters, so her presence might've made the movie a non-flop.

I had to look before I opened my my mouth but she was also in The flop from hell 1941. It was either that or Howard the Duck. It was a flip of the coin for me, both were equally bad. Thank God for Wiki

Her other big role for me was on the TV show Bosum Buddies with Tom Hanks. Loved that show, as much for Dan Ackroyd's future wife, Donna Dixon as anything else. 

Actually reading her Wiki entry showed how much of a presence she had in my viewing habits. She was all over the place!

"1941" was indeed a financial flop, but it definitely has its moments - the cast is solid (Wendie Jo especially), and some of the set-pieces are spectacular - the USO dance, the "Jaws" parody opening. Plus Spielberg's mastery of the camera is in full effect. But the film grows exhausting, with all the manic hysteria and farcical destruction. Ultimately, it's not as funny a Zemeckis-Gale script as "Wanna Hold...", "Used Cars" or "Back To The Future".

"Howard the Duck" was terrible.
