1941 (Theatrical Cut)

Steven Spielberg's monumental comedy spectacular, based on a true incident, about the war panic that erupted in Southern California after a Japanese sub was spotted off the coast six days after the attack on Pearl Harbor, is an all-star extravaganza that is hysterical to some, laboured to others. A sensory assault that flopped on initial release saw the future Spielberg never this freewheeling again. Stars John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, John Candy, Ned Beatty, Nancy Allen, Robert Stack and many others; written by Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale ("Back to the Future").
