Wacky Characters Make For Fun Movie
7 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's funny how it was decades since viewing this movie again but I always remembered Dom DeLuise experimenting and lighting up a joint, and then laughing hysterically. That laugh put me in tears laughing so hard at him laughing and wheezing!

DeLuise, who I was sorry to see abuse the Lord's name in vain so much in this film, at least early on, is still fun to watch as are his partners in crime in this story: Suzanne Pleshette, Jerry Reed and Ossie Davis. Actually, DeLuise, Reed and Pleshette play undercover cops in a sting operation, if you can believe that!

If you enjoy seeing oddball characters, you'll like this movie. It certainly has it's share of wackos.
