Hilarious movie! "ccthemovieman" does it a disservice. Freewheeling and full of clever plays-on-words humor. I've watched it at least five times and have recommended it to many friends who thanked me for turning them on to it. And I would call the "sexual humor" really tame; this is not a raunchy or sleazy movie by any means.
Falk is almost channeling Bogart his performance is that spot on. John Housman's "Sidney Greenstreet" is hilarious. Great performances by Kahn and Stockard Channing as well. If you like this movie, you would probably also like "Rustler's Rhapsody", another spoof that didn't get a lot of publicity when it was released.
