Through snow, through hail, through dark of night . . .
25 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a fun movie! Despite the fact that the original screenplay was torn to shreds, as explained in Cantor's autobiography, which, by the way, was not ghosted, but was a full collaboration with David Freedman, the sight gags are still enjoyable, and the scene in the dance hall, where Cantor tries to extract the ice that has been slipped down his neck, is actually hilarious.

Trivia: Cantor's three oldest daughters, 11, 10 and 8 at the time, begged to be in the movie, so he allowed them to walk down the street in the scene where he puts the baby in his postal bag. If you blink, you'll miss their entire movie careers!
