I saw this on Cable a few years back and thought it was one of the funniest older movies I have ever seen. Charles Grodin is simply hilarious as Lenny. Lenny's wife also is played well by Jeanie Berlin. Cybil Shepherd does a fine job in one of her first roles. Eddie Albert even shows up and is hilarious as the father of Cybil Shepherd. I highly recomend this one. Favorite Scene: Grodin talking to the big football player outside the college classes. that is one of the funniest scenes in movie history. Check it out.
