#1153 Moving Violations (1985)

Moving Violations is a film known for most as the only film release featuring John Murray, Bill Murray’s baby brother.

While John is no Bill, he actually fares surprisingly well here. While the constant wise cracking is right there on the verge of getting tiresome, I can imagine how annoying it might’ve gotten in someone other’s hands. But John Murray does not carry the movie through, the movie actually does it all by itself.

A comedy in the vein of Police Academy about bad drivers forced to attend to a traffic school has some actually funny moments throughout and ends up a well above average comedy in the best tradition of the 80s, including the ending that wraps up the movie in a more satisfying way than almost any other comedy out there.
