VIDEO: Ishtar (1987)
After an eight month hiatus, it’s time for another episode of Mr. Mendo’s Hack Attack!
This time around, Mr. Mendo tackles one of the most notorious disasters in movie history: Ishtar! Starring Dustin Hoffman, Warren Beatty, Isabelle Adjani, and Charles Grodin, this 1987 comedy was infamous for its obscene budget of $55 million (over $100 million in today’s money!), reports of feuding between Beatty and director Elaine May, and its total lack of actual jokes.
Thrill to the song stylings of Dustin Hoffman and Warren Beatty, as they perform classics like “Love in My Will”, “Software”, “Wardrobe of Love”, and “How Big Am I?” And yes, these are the highlights of the movie.
