It is dry excellent humor.
31 July 2002 | by (south carolina) – See all my reviews

It is a satire and is not contaminated as one previous comment suggests. Senses of humor vary and this comedy is slightly dark with a universal message. The opening scene is unique and original. A scene regarding one of the controlled biologist agents "test" with Harry Guardino and Elliot Gould is very funny occurring while they try to carry on a conversion. It should be re-released in DVD format.

Thanks,

Mike
