    I really think his work was under appreciated.

    I had no idea he was sick. One of the great's gone. I'm almost 62 and I'm starting to feel my own mortality. Life goes way too fast :(

    You know you were a comedy genius when Stripes is only like your 6th funniest movie.

    I was just about to mention Stripes. That movie was pure gold, and I don't believe anyone was caught in 1984 not wearing a Ghostbusters shirt. I didn't get a chance to see Groundhog Day (will now), but Stripes and Ghostbusters have always been in my movie collection.

    Funnily enough, a movie theater here in town has been having 80s throwback nights every friday for the past 2 months, and Ghostbusters has been one of the movies shown, especially with this year being the 30th anniversary of it. I'll have to catch it in the theaters again.

    RIP, Mr. Ramis.

    BL.

    The only movie that actually explains dating and it's not even a dating movie!

    Watched Groundhog Day just last week.

    A very nice feel-good movie, but not in a bad way.;)

    I will now seek-out Stripes. Thanks. :D

    That was outstanding. Saw it when he did it, and you could tell it shook him up, he looked like he was getting teary eyed!

    He was my inspiration for my user name! I loved his work with SCTV back at the beginning of the show. "They say I'm tetched..."
