Beetlejuice.  Hands down.  Of course, I did watch it at 5 and think it's hilarious. 

Seconded by Multiplicity.  I thought that was hilarious.

A criminally underrated actor IMO.

Anyway, I think his best flick is Beetljuice.

And I agree that his performance(s) in Multiplicity are great even if the movie surrounding those performances isn't actually that great.

I agree with that.

The script for Multiplicity wasnt' the greatest, but working within that, I felt he pulled it off.

And I honestly don't think I'd see anybody else pulling it off.

I've always liked MK, I think he's good no matter what he's in. I voted for Jonny Dangerously, just beacuse it's so easy to watch, it's funny, and to me has alot of memorable lines. (I always give people the "My sister did that once. . . ONCE. "). There's alot of subtle humor in it, like when he's putting pricetags on the kittens in the pet shop, or the weird, nonsensical proverbs the fake priest is saying while Jonny is escaping from death row.

I liked beetlejuice a bit, but it was just a little too cartoonish for the story, and it really didn't have enough of MK's character in it. I do remember EVERY one of his lines in it by heart. At a shipyard I used to work at, when something would fall over or collapse, we used to do MK's "Nice F-ing Model" line, complete with the crotch grab.

Pacific heights was pretty damn good, he played a good creep, as he did in desperate measures. I'm surprized nobody picked Night Shift, seems to be a bit of a cult classic among people I grew up with. Mr. Mom was a real good story also, I remember it being all over Cable in the eighties, I've seen it alot and it's always fairly enjoyable.

Well I'm going to say Johnny Dangerously just because it's got some great line in it, you bunch of son of bastagies.

I haven't seen Johnny Dangerously in maybe 10 years.  It was decent from what I remember.  Plus Weird Al has a song in it.

Although I love both of the Batman films, I'd have to say Beetlejuice is my favorite of his films. The character he plays is just so awesome.

However, I haven't seen a whole lot of his films, so I can only judge by the ones I have seen.

I voted for BEETLEJUICE, but I also like MR. MOM and THE DREAM TEAM.

NIGHT SHIFT was ok.

I don't know why, but Keeton kinda reminds me of Tom Hanks.

Was Dream Team the one where he's in a mental hospital but breaks out the guys to go to New York, and Peter Boyle goes to church and strips down to his boxers?

Loved Pacific Heights, although I intensely dislike Melanie Griffith.  His portrayal of a lying scumbag psycho was second to none.

Loved Night Shift.  It was funny and absurd in the way only 80s comedies can be.

And I agree that his Batman was the best of the bunch.  I read that after that movie, he refused to do another because he was so uncomfortable in the rubber suit.  Pity.  It would have been awesome.  And I think he and Michelle Pfeiffer had some great chemistry.

I voted for Gung Ho. Always got a kick out of that movie. Very 80s.

But then I saw Johnny Dangerously on the list, and now I'm not so sure. Haven't seen it in years, but I remember it being really funny. Every once in a while I've thought about finding a copy. I should see it again.
