A masterpiece of physical humor
3 July 2002 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

This ranks near the epitome of the comedic experience; perhaps not an intellectually provocative outing, but this is a masterpiece of physical humor. It is unusual to find a film of this nature sporting the stellar cast which appear here - Caan, Gould, Caine and Keaton enjoy a rare chemistry and display a keen sense of timing. If you haven't seen this yet, make it your next film! (Ok, after you finish Lawrence of Arabia, 2001, and West Side Story - but then, make sure you see it!)
