Absolutely hilarious!
5 July 2006 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

It is truly criminal that this movie is not available on DVD, especially when you consider the tripe that is out there.

The acting is on target and the writing is superb. Richard Kiel is perfect as the asexual mobster who forces Jack Warden to bring his dorky English professor son Ryan O'Neal into the family garment business. An affair between O'Neal and Kiel's incredibly hot wife ensues, leading to a clothing fiasco that results in the development of jeans with clear plastic back pockets and a windfall profit for the company.

O'Neal returns to school, leaving his New York garment district co-workers with Shakespeare ("We few, we happy few...") And from there the finale (Verdi's Otello, Richard Kiel in the title role, an appearance on paper by Pope John Paul II, and one of the classic lines of Jack Warden's career) can only be described as perfect.

BTW, Fred Gwinn is exceptional as the head of O'Neal's English department.

Don't miss it!
