This is one of my favorite movies of all time, yes it is a little nostalgic for me, but even as an adult I find this movie genius! It's hilarious, witty, and has great songs! Danny Kaye is fantastic playing the twin brothers that are total opposites; the brother who's a nightclub singer,"Buzzy", is murdered and keeps trying to communicate with his bookworm brother which is what really lends to the comedy of this movie. Yes the story is kinda ridiculous, but thats the FUN of it! The scenes where Buzzy is trying to get his brother to go to "Prospect Park" and what takes place afterward are so funny!! No one can surpass the incredibly funny sneezing opera singer or the quirky "Bali" song performed with Vera Ellen. If you like silly comedy, you'll LOVE this--I do!!
