Lethal Weapon 2 was the big release of the month, a sequel to the successful buddy cop film starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. The sequel added Joe Pesci for some truly annoying extra comic relief, but continued to tackle important topical issues. This time it was South African apartheid. Basically Riggs and Murtagh get to take down the racist institution all on their own. Or at least the criminal diplomat in Los Angeles running a major drug ring.
There was a Bond film, too. The sixteenth in the series, License to Kill, was Timothy Dalton's second and final outing as the MI5 operative.
On the other hand, Weekend at Bernie's, though I enjoyed it at the time, does not have any really. How many laughs can you squeeze out of a dead guy?
Finally, from the list of what I've seen, is Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan
If you were a teenage girl in 1989, you probably saw Shag, starring Phoebe Cates, Bridget Fonda, and Annabeth Gish, about a group of four friends on a getaway in Myrtle Beach, SC, in 1963.
Tom Hanks would have a few more years before becoming a Serious Actor. This year's outing was dog buddy comedy Turner & Hooch. Another of those stupid comedies I was smart enough to pass up even when I was eleven and never went back to it.
