One of the only films to capture the full experience of stage farce.
13 August 1999 | by (Chicago, Ill,) – See all my reviews

True stage farce is a very rare thing, even in an actual theater. Even more rare is capturing the experience on film, which this film successfully does. Leave it to the critics and theorists to say film has no business doing this. It's still a good laugh.
