Contrary to most moviegoers' beliefs, the
largest section of Bruce Willis' work falls under the heading of
comedy. Granted, some of my classifications are less than obvious:
I suddenly understood many of the adverse reactions to The Fifth
Element when an e-mail friend explained that many American viewers
didn't see the comedy in it...
Willis' comedies tend to get trashed by critics and ignored by the
public, for a lot of reasons. Granted, Woody Allen it ain't, fortunately
for those of us who prefer other brands of wit.
And then, if you are stuck with the vision of Bruce Willis the Action
Man and get fun instead of fire power and saving the world, you're
bound to be disappointed.
If you're at all interested in Willis' actual work and not just
somebody's prejudiced view of it, his comedies can't be ignored.

category, or explore some more surprises under the heading of "Drama".
