| A Must for Benson Fans
I have viewed this movie twice. That does not make me an expert but honestly, Elvis made family type movies in his day, so why not Robby Benson ?? This is as good a movie as any of the Elvis movies, if not better !! There is just something magical about Robby Benson. I have read negative reviews about his acting in this movie and like what ?? So happy am I that a movie has caught Benson's cute gestures and big smile, perfect, just perfect. Don't discount Mr. Benson in any way or well, you yourself go try and make an epic movie !! Die Laughing is a good clean funny film with pretty good acting. Not a bad script. Many good support people. I am a big Bud Cort fan, so I rented this movie to see Bud Cort. Die Laughing is the first movie that Bud Cort was in after the 1979 car accident that changed his life and drained his bank account, God Bless Him. In this movie Mr. Cort is wearing his own real cast and scars. Cort performs well enough here as the mad scientist type. Being over 50 years old, I had almost forgotten about Robby Benson, but Robby was a teen heart throb back in the day and rightly so. The movie has Robby singing his heart out. Good songs, good lyrics and that Benson smile that no one else has ever had and maybe no one else ever will.
