Classic.
20 June 2001 | by (Akron, Ohio.) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie, everything about it works. From the great opening to the hilarious final gag, this film was entertaining. Rodney Dangerfield plays a slob/children's photographer who's set to inherit some money from his mother-in-law who hates him, given that he weighs 175 pounds and cuts back on the things he loves (but she hates) by the end of a year. These things mainly include drinking too much, smoking too much, eating too much, and being plain out vulgar. Of course, this is the setting for one of funniest comedies I've ever seen. And this movie has one of the best theme songs ever written for a comedy I've ever heard. Go out and buy this tonight.
