What was my Dad thinking?
24 September 2002 | by (Chantilly, VA) – See all my reviews

Back in 1980 my dad suggested that me and my brother go see this movie. So we went expecting a slapstick comedy suitable for a 13-year old and 11-year old. What we saw was a lame sex comedy with Steve Guttenberg desperately trying to get his girlfriend in the sack. When he finally does, well you know what happens. Plus, Phil Silvers plays a dirty old man (near the end of his career and my first introduction to him). My brother and I didn't laugh once and I began to realize that my dad's sense of humor and mine were not alike.

It wasn't until later when my father confessed his love for the Police Academy series that I fully understood how far apart we were in terms of comedy. He likes every comedy and I am particular. With this movie though, I am being very generous in terming it a comedy. My dad must have been thinking of another movie.
