Trivia

Filmed independently in 1973 for Columbia Pictures release, it was shelved by the studio, reportedly due to the "too parochial" nature of its comic content. Thought to be incomplete and unfinished, it reappeared on pay-TV over a decade later, in 1984. See more »

really funny movie
18 November 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have heard so much bad talk about this movie. I have seen this movie at least 10 times now and I love it. Yes the lines are hard to understand but honestly this adds to the humor. Peter Sellers does an excellent job of acting as a buffoon. It is his acting and the odd script that make this movie so funny.

I would recommend this movie to anyone and everyone. Just except a funny somewhat slack-stick humor based movie.
