Bizarre
2 September 2001 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie three times when it first came out. I thought it was the funniest thing I had ever seen. I laughed at the antics and thought "the guy from 'Hollywood Squares'" was hilarious. I was ten years old at the time. I had no idea what the story or the humor was all about--I just loved watching adults act stupid (what kid wouldn't?) I watched it again a few years ago and, although there is plenty of slapstick, most of the humor is really desperate and unfunny. And the premise is completely bizarre, and not very funny. I guess Joan Rivers was going for the "all bets are off" humor of a Mel Brooks film. The movie pokes fun at all races and religions. The humor borders offensive, and is not successful because it's simply not funny (the image of God at the end saying "Oh my God..it's a girl!"--what is funny about this?) Irreverence is not always funny, as many comedy filmmakers in the '90s would discover. Why my parents took me to see this remains a mystery that is still discussed on occasion.
