Saw this when first released, and it was a howler...but only to a genuine movie and TV fan.
In addition to the various disaster films of the 1970s, it also harkens back to some classic WWII films, the smarmy romances of the 60s and 70s, and not a small number of tidbits from television.
Our circle of friends who saw it together are all film nuts, and we spent days picking the film apart and identifying all of the references and parodies, and still find ones we missed whenever we catch it again.
It's not a spectacular film...hell, it's not even that great of a comedy if you don't get the parody references...but it _is_ one of those films that "hangs together" into a working product.
If you aren't a film buff, then simply sit down on the couch with your favorite nosh, and empty your mind to accept the totality...
And don't cut yourself on the broken milk carton.
