this can be funny. it can be entertaining. it can be a rotten tomato. and it is true the second half slows down the story .but if your looking for story read war and peace. Marty Fledman is funny in smaller doses,as in young Frankenstien,here to much of a good thing. what this movie has is Ann Margret. plays a sexy hot step mom out to get her way and who would argue with this nasty gal.movie really needs to be on DVD. could ware out review and pause on Ann Margret alone.on that note i recommend this movie with my whole heart. my whole mind and soul. hot sexy nasty cigar smoking Ann Margret. I don't know what more an American boy could want.
