Director: Alan Metter Run Time: 96 min. Format: 35mm Rating: PG 13 Release Year: 1986 Starring: Rodney Dangerfield, Sally Kellerman, Burt Young, Keith Gordon, Robert Downey, Jr. Respect comes due on The Deuce for Father's Day, when Rodney Dangerfield goes BACK TO SCHOOL – teaching those dummies at Times Square's Selwyn Theatre a thing or three! Self-made big-bucks billionaire daddy Dangerfield doesn't want his milquetoast kid to drop out of college – so enrolls himself in to show the punk how it's done! Soon the bug-eyed bozo is the crazy-king of the campus – putting the jocks, preps, and frat-boys to shame and wooing Sally Kellerman's brainy/sexy Lit teacher in the bargain – all while his schlep of a son – Keith Gordon – bums around with the resident socialist rabble-rouser – Robert Downey, Jr! One-liners and double-entendres fly! Dangerfield does some Olympics-level diving!??! Kurt Vonnegut shows up?!!? Sam Kinison screams (duh)… Oingo Boingo!! But it's all Rodney's show – the forever sad-sack at the top of his hilarious game – loud, obnoxious, outré – and ultimately lovable… the classic "clown" with the patina of pathos and bathos.. "What's a bath without bubbles? Bubbles, get over here!" Come bathe in the bonkers brilliance that was Rodney Dangerfield for our Father's Day Deuce… and shed a tear… or two…
