I just saw the movie again. It is still very funny. I suggest you watch it again. Unlike wiggle jiggle disco films of today, it has a plot,characters,progression, conflict, and resolution.
There is subtlety in the humor; it is not a slapstick comedy. It is classic Buck Henry. Can you say "National Lampoon"? If you liked Lampoon, you'll love this. If your idea of funny is Will and Grace, don't bother to watch it again.
Don't judge this film by today's standards, folks. It is 25 years old. Look at it the same way you would look at a Mel Brooks film.
I think old George Bush could learn a thing or two about diplomacy from this film.
