R.I.P. Harold Ramis, Director of “Club Paradise”

Club_paradise

Harold Ramis, actor/writer/director for blockbusters like Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day, died this morning at age 69 — don’t worry, Ramis probably would have found it ironic, too. Known for his raunchy, “gross-out” comedies (see: Animal House) Ramis also brought his distinct sense of humor to the Caribbean with the cult classic Club Paradise (1986).

Not to be confused with the Drake song of the same name (though we’d like to think that was inspired it), Club Paradise features Jimmy Cliff —in his second acting role, 10-plus years after The Harder They Come—as a reggae musician named Ernest Reed who works alongside Yankee Robin Williams to start a Club Med-style resort. “Reed” performs throughout the movie, with a backing band that includes reggae legend Earl “Chinna” SmithThe Harder They Come co-star Carl Bradshaw even makes a cameo as an enterprising taxi driver (check it out below).
