i say “It Takes Two”
Boys from Brazil. Love that flick.
Wow. What an unexpected thread.
Boys from Brazil. No question.
If you watch carefully, you can see him blink after he is dead in BOYS FROM BRAZIL.
The Bedroom Window has both Elizabeth McGovern and Isabelle Huppert.
Does any actor have a more bizarre back-to-back as Steve Guttenberg? Can’t Stop the Music followed by Diner!?!?!
My vote is for Diner anyway. I like The Boys from Brazil too…he’s like a Hardy Boy meeting Mengele.
Good call Francisco on The Bedroom Window…that was Curtis Hanson I believe.
Without a doubt, THE MAN WHO WASN’T THERE (1983). A truly insane movie.
he has a certain charm
man who wasn’t there because i have a fondness for invisibility movies
ps yr cat is dead is his last decent role
I once got into a bet over who was the number one box office star of the 1980s – Harrison Ford or Steve Guttenberg. I think I was going with Ford but the fact that this bet could even be made must mean something. Guttenberg made some bad career choices perhaps – I believe I remember reading he was offered and turned down the lead in Big as well as a part in Ghostbusters – but he had a certain charisma that I remember fondly from my misspent childhood (misspent = having Police Academy I through IV on one worn out EP tape). He played the knowing anti-authority wisecracking smartass probably better than most of his ilk and was probably one of the more unlikely Hollywood box office draws this side of Richard Dreyfuss.
Come on now Three men and a baby! Directed by Spock himself!
he is supposedly working on three men and a little lady
a lot of 80s stuff is coming back
a smurfs movie
why not steve?
Uh, didn’t Three Men and a Little Lady come out, like, twenty years ago? Maybe they’re working on Three Men and a Married Woman?
sorry three men and a bride
Boys from Brazil
Ah, I see. It must be hard to come up with a title for a film that starts with Three Men and ends with some variation of a woman and doesn’t sound like a porn film.
I can’t believe that the incredible auteur voice that is Nancy Walker isn’t more widely recognized for her direction of “Can’t Stop the Music”.
i still say “it takes two”
Boys from Brazil and Diner. They were the ONLY good movies he was in, imo.
Home for the Holidays!!
Home for the Holidays was not bad at all High Spirits too and Diner of course
turns out Guttenberg did some good work after all
Who holds back the electric car
Who makes Steve Guttenberg a star
We do, we do
Yep, Can’t Stop The Music.
revive this thread!
I see this thread is from over two years ago. Wouldn’t that be the heyday of “The Auteurs” when all the great discussions that we’re not having anymore were going on?
yes. i started it my freshman year of college as a half-troll/half-serious thread. it ended up just becoming a good discussion about a generally overlooked actor.
and that was about 5 years ago, not 2 >_<
I enjoyed him playing himself on an episode of Party Down. I was shocked at how ripped he was.
I also stand by my initial assessment of his career.
And you can’t tell me that Ay Lav Yu doesn’t sound mildly intriguing:
