In "The Mikado", Yum-Yum, Peep-Bo, and Pitti-Sing are shown performing "Three Little Maids from School". The film then cuts to Tony and Gloria racing to the opera house. During this time Tony has time to drive several blocks, crash the cowboy's truck, survey the scene and commandeer an airport limo. When the film cuts back to the Mikado performance, only a few seconds have elapsed in the song. See more »
I play Detective. You play Lady In Distress.
Hey, wait a minute. It's *my* ass they're after.
I'm sorry. You're right. That was a stupid, glib, chauvinist remark and I apologize. It *is* your ass they're after, and it's my job to see to it that... I get there first.

I saw this film when I was nine years old. And I loved it. From the opening shot of Goldie Hawn's VW bug driving along to Barry Manilow's "Ready to Take a Chance Again" to the Pope tapping his foot to "Three Little Maids From School Are We," this movie is pure entertainment. What makes it so funny is it seems an exercise in lateral thinking. A snake that eats cigarettes? An albino hit man? Billy Barty? I love the music in this film and watching Dudley Moore sing "I feel the earth move under my feet" ... while he tries to seduce Hawn, who was the very model of wholesome cuteness in the '70s and '80s. Her pairing with Chase gave us some of the funniest shows of the era. (I also enjoy "Seems Like Old Times.") The only downside to this film - if you see it when you're an impressionable child, you'll always be wondering if someone will stab you through the theater seat. Argh!
