God, I loved these movies back in the day. It’s silly, but they were one of the things that made me want to become a news reporter when I was a kid. I actually saw the second movie first, in the theater — and then found the first movie on VHS at my local mom-and-pop video store.
I’ve heard good things about the reboot with Jon Hamm, though I haven’t seen it yet. I’ve also never read the original novels by Gregory McDonald, and I feel like I ought to remedy that.
