[Puts his arm around Ramon who is a foot shorter than him]
Well I like you. Tomorrow at noon, you may climb me.
Come on. He ain't that short.

This is a funny movie. It was way too long in coming to DVD. I bought it for my sons and brother for Christmas. We worn out the VHS copy.
The ensemble cast is excellent. Each character has its unique personality. Very well acted, and it looks like they had a lot of fun making this. Sadly most every one of the main characters are gone now.
It does have the repertoire company of Burt Reynolds, but I think it is a better film with this cast then if Burt had taken the lead.
I wish Dom DeLuise had made more films. He became more interested in cooking later in life. He was a very funny man. I used to love him on Johnny Carson.
Please take the time to seek out this movie. You'll enjoy it!
