If he were in a TRF movie he'd play dual roles: you AND goose!
And he could pull it off too because he's versatile!
That role was my intro to Keaton.
Also, it was the first Ron Howard directed film that I saw too. Cunningham was directing Fonzie!
BUT before Beeteljuice he starred in Mr. Mom and JOHNNY Dangerously. I liked both but Mr. Mom I remember as being pretty successful.
What did you think when he got chosen to play Batman?
Like everyone else then I was like "WTF?!!"
I already liked him but I thought of him as a comic actor and that it was bad casting. BUT when I saw it I said I was wrong and that he did well. I still think he did well.
It's just that I don't like those Burton ((or Schumacher)) Bat films anymore. Nothing to do with Keaton though.
When I saw Keaton in Pacific Heights that's when I thought he was really good. Between 1982's Night Shift and 1990's Pacific Heights, he did Mr. Mom, Johnny Dangerously, Beetlejuice, and Batman. That's a pretty big spread. Even the comedic style (in those that are comedies) is different.
He even did a couple of lesser movies in that time which I could enjoy in that 80s formulaic movie way --- Gung Ho and Touch and Go.
