Not my Favorite J.L. Film, (that would be Errand Boy), but delightful, nonetheless. Great physical comedy and some lightweight satire ("a man has to be king of his own ranch style tract home").
The woman who played Jane Hathaway in Beverly Hillbillies makes a cameo appearance as a Big Game Hunter looking for a new rifle in the Sporting Dept., where Jerry's Character is working the counter.
The usual slapstick devices come into play such as the golf bag sch tick (you know, the one), the golf ball going out the window...making, let's just say..multiple bounces along its journey, and of course.
The exercise bicycles on the mattress, and ensuing endurance jog make my side hurt with laughter.
Home sick from work or school, either from a cold or the bad ironic humor that pervades your weekdays? This is your film.
If you don't like Jerry, you have no soul.
