"I HAVE TO ADMIT, I ENJOYED EVERY RIDICULOUS MINUTE OF IT"
"Me watching 'The Bonfire of the Vanities' for the first time," robotGEEK wrote on Instagram a few days ago, along with a gif of the zoom-in on Tom Hanks with the big grin, from the film's climactic courtroom scene. "What a wild ride." In a follow-up post, robotGEEK wrote:
I’m not entirely sure what the hell I just watched, but I have to admit I enjoyed every ridiculous minute of it. I knew nothing about this going in, other than it was a flop and that it was directed by De Palma. I was curious more than anything, but was handsomely rewarded with a film that was ultimately a series of bizarre choices, an impressively eclectic cast, and a tone I still struggle to define. But most importantly, it was a blast. My only major complaint is that Melanie Griffith is obnoxiously annoying as all hell in this. Like really fucking annoying.
