Extremely funny
3 February 2003 | by (Ljubljana, Slovenia) – See all my reviews

I don't remember ever laughing as hard as I did during the first scene where the landlord is showing De Niro the apartment. Convincing him he was getting a furnished apartment with a great view (because he's in the highest level and thus the closest to the open sky). I was sceptical about this movie but it turned to be one of the funniest comedies of the 70's. De Niro is fabulous and I can't imagine why he didn't do more comedy because he's hilarious. Some of the best scenes are when he's improvising his cop role or the one where he gives himself 25 and 1/2 minutes to seduce the girl but instead she messes his plan because she wants to have sex immediately. So he makes up a story and goes out to buy condoms.

A very funny movie with cool music, great acting, great sketches and jokes, oh, and Jennifer Salt, one of the sexiest girls I've ever seen on the big screen. A movie that doesn't really have a point but is extremely enjoyable and entertaining. 8/10
