BIGGEST HIT OF THE SUMMER
It's hard to overstate how omnipresent this movie was that summer. The Ray Parker Jr. song was on the radio every thirty minutes for months. Bill Murray was arguably the biggest comedy star on the planet. I saw it several times over the course of the summer, and in August, I remember the evening shows still being almost totally sold out. It took five years before they made a sequel, which Kristopher Tapley wrote about in the first Summer Movie Flashback piece we ran this summer. With a final total gross of $229 million, it was a full $50 million bigger than the next biggest movie of the summer, "Indiana Jones and the Temple Of Doom."
