A satire of men against the machine
13 August 2001 | by (Washington DC) – See all my reviews

Our hero explains to a doctor at the beginning of this film that there are only two types in the world. Men who slave, raise families and are basically simple good men and the Corporals of the world who make life difficult for regular guys.

This is a good film of classic, sometimes obvious, satire and good old-fashioned slap-stick comedy. The ending is very realistic, however, regarding the fate of good men.

The films of Toto are always fun to watch and the comedy is excellent. This film does not have the power of "The Passionate Thief" but it is definitely worth your time.
