Wildly risque short is a hoot
11 December 2002 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

An Oscar winner for Best Short, this has to be seen to be believed. The premise-- that the liver-lipped, frogfaced, three-note-range singer-bandleader Harris is The Sexiest Man Alive-- becomes the tongue-in-cheek excuse for an endless array of sexual double entendres, usually delivered by women in sheer clothing in improbable locations such as a golf course ("Watch your niblick and be careful with your putz!"). The star isn't actually Harris but Walter Catlett, a sort of Tony Randall type, as a man nearly driven mad by the inescapable popularity of Harris among all females (and the occasional effeminate male). Comedically, this short starts over the top and just keeps going, and it led to a feature (Melody Cruise) which is nearly as wild and hilarious, as well as to writer-director Sandrich's subsequent career directing such films as Top Hat.
