Happy Birthday Rick Moranis!

Today is the birthday of Rick Moranis. He’s 59 years young and we can’t thank him enough for is various roles in some of our favorite movies. Trying to pick between his performances in Little Shop of Horrors, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, and Ghostbusters is nearly impossible. Hell, we’ll even take Honey, I Blew Up the Kid and Ghostbusters 2. Oh yeah, and despite what our staff writer said last week about Spaceballs, Rick Moranis is awesome in Spaceballs.

We raise our low-sodium drinks to you, sir. And now, we’ll head back to our collective apartments and play 30-minute work out on our video machines at high speeds so it will only take 15 minutes and we will get a great workout.

I'll take other goofy Rick Moranis movies for 2oo Alex.
Answer Strange Brew, Flinstones, and Brother Bear.
He also co-starred in Little Giants, My Blue Heaven, and Parenthood.
In his honor I may just break out my Ghostbusters DVDs this weekend.

For some strange reason, I've had Moranis on my mind for the last couple of weeks. Not that Wiki is purest truth, but I have to admit to being touched by his entry. Dropping his career to be a dad for his kids after his wife died? Enough to make him one of my favorite actors of all time, even without all of his great movie credits.
