Review: The prank-loving cops of 'Super Troopers' return
A goofy sense of inconsequentiality is an underappreciated trait in comedies. There's an abiding charm to movies so low in their stakes and so loose in their order that they feel as if at any moment they might fall apart. Films like "Caddyshack" and "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" are good examples, but outside of the loose absurdities of some of Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's films ("Step Brothers," ''Anchorman") most of today's big-screen comedies are more conceptually tidy.

For almost four decades, we have been taught to see public spending as a bad thing; ruthless economising as a virtue Public investment enriches lives; here it would have saved them. The best memorial to all those who have lost their lives in Grenfell is that we as a nation choose collectively to invest in safe and secure public housing for all who need it.
