a slapstick primer
6 March 2011 | by (Calumet, Mich.) – See all my reviews

Gosh, & Conway even wrote this one himself. It's fun being able to predict what is gonna be happening. I was laughing hysterically throughout this thing. It was also fun seeing so many old comedians jammed into one flick from over 30 years ago. People who read my IMDb comments know that errors in plot-logic usually annoy me but, no, this is simply funny. I'd say it ran out of steam near the very end but, heck, I'd already laughed a gazillion times by then. The only sad thing is that I have actually worked with guys like Dewey (but I'm not as humorous as McCann). Just think how wonderful a world we would live in if prison farms were really like this. 'Certainly not as depressing as those "realistic" crime dramas I usually watch, eh? I wonder if this would make a good date movie.
