Thankyou for reminding me of how good they were, true legends of comedy. 2 others I haven't seen mention were Dom Deluise and Robin Williams. Bothe were masters of the improve.

Joe v Volcano was an underrated comedy, and doesnt get mentioned these days as often as it should amongst the other good films that Hanks did in the 80s and 90s.

Speaking of, I just found out today that they are doing a TV show reboot of Turner & Hooch

a part of the first episode of Loki reminded me of Defending Your Life (Albert Brooks, Meryl Streep)
a great comedy - maybe 4 or 5 jokes in the whole thing but incredibly funny (and poignant)

I remember thinking this movie was much funnier as a kid, but it's still a good film
