THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI: ACROSS THE 8TH DIMENSION (Movie)
A world class neurosurgeon/jet car designer-driver/particle physicist/East Jersey bar band singer-musician and his Hong Kong Cavaliers must save the world.
Hes sarcastic and laughs at Lizardo's plans. (Lizardos line "Laugh while you can, monkey boy!" is directed at JB.) On night duty, he smokes and watches TV with feet on desk to pass the time.
Highly recommended, great fun all around.
White uniform with name tag and a bow tie. Later he has a red and white baseball cap with gothic Z. (Which team?)
"Whew! At last, a hero for the rest of us. Diabolically good satire... a contemporary comedy... densely packed... staggering." Sheila Benson, Los Angeles Times, 8/10/1984, sec.VI, p.1.
"Quirky comedy." Variety, 8/8/1984.
Also New York Times, 10/5/1984, sec.III, p.8.
Lizardo breaks the attendants neck while escaping the asylum. He slides down wall and sprawls on the floor when killed.
"Hello, Doc. Who are we today, Albert Einstein?"
"Well, cheer up, Lizardo, it's Friday. Another care package from your yo-yo friends."
"Beats me how an old homicidal loony can use that much power."
"Where you think you're going, Doc? The moon?" (Planet 10.) "Planet 10. Why, pray tell?"
Just over 1 minute, in 2 scenes.
