The Ten Best Rick Moranis Movies

Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas

In 1997, actor Rick Moranis made the really respectful and admirable choice of leaving acting after his wife had passed away from cancer in order to focus more on raising their kids. Since he essentially “retired,” Moranis has done some voice acting in animated films like Brother Bear and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and the Island of Misfit Toys, but he’s really been out of the limelight since hitting it big in the 80s and 90s with movies like Parenthood and, obviously, Ghostbusters. With the news coming out weeks ago that the creators of Ghostbusters want to make a third film in the series, it’s gotten us thinking about Moranis, who for the most part, had a pretty short film career, and the movies that he had been in. And while some of these choices made be impacted by both nostalgia and a slight lack of knowledge (I’ve never seen films like My Blue Heaven or LA Story, for example), here are my picks for the top ten best Rick Moranis movies.
