I've watched movies from every era, of every genre; my favorites are comedy and SF. In the comedy genre, the only thing I can say about this movie is an unreserved THIS IS THE ABSOLUTE, ALL-TIME MOST HILARIOUS MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE.....and I've had fifty-eight years of life and experience to form that opinion in. I have two recommendations to make:
1: If you need a good, solid emotional pick-me-up, this is the movie to watch (my wife suffers from severe bouts of depression; in the midst of one of her worst bouts, this movie had her on the floor, laughing hysterically)---with one proviso:
2:DO NOT WATCH THIS MOVIE if you've just had abdominal surgery; it could kill you---literally.
