Day 5: "The 'Burbs" vs. "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels"

I have a passion for collecting off-beat 80's classics on VHS.

Tell me which movie you think I should watch.

Whichever flick garners the most votes, I will watch it the next day. Then I'll put up 2 more classics to choose from.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is the only movie with a twist ending that fooled me *twice*. I'd guess there are maybe five that have even managed to get me once, so this movie is held in high, high regard in my heart.

Ah crap, sorry, I meant to say "Steve Martin and Michael Cane are GREATER THEN Tom Hanks."
