         This may just well be the funniest movie ever made. It is a gag a minute comedy from the Zucker brothers (and Jim Abrahams). It is laugh out loud funny no matter how many times you see it. You will laugh at the antics of Robert Stack, Leslie Nielsen, and Lloyd Bridges. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar even gets a hand in the stew.  

       While the two main stars are Julie Hagerty and Robert Hays everyone gets plenty of screen time in this one hour and twenty-seven minute romp. This film will leave you in stitches and begging for more. (Fortunately there was a sequel.) 

        Many people consider it the funniest movie ever made. I’m not sure if I agree or not, but it just may be the silliest film ever. I will definitely add this to my permanent collection and see it over and over again. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                 Grade A+

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
