A movie before and after its time.
24 April 2000 | by (Brooklyn, New York) – See all my reviews

On one hand, this movie was made about 10 years too early, before the computer age had really taken hold.

On the other hand, it should have been made at least 10 years earlier, to take advantage of the immense gifts for physical comedy that Sid Caesar and Dick Van Dyke had.

As it is, it's still wonderful to see two of the most influential comic performers of the last half century on the same screen at the same time. I imagine this is what it could have been seeing Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel performing together with the Fred Karno troupe, or what it was like seeing Chaplin and Buster Keaton in that one small part of "Limelight".

And, of course, seeing Rob Petrie and the inspiration for Alan Brady on screen....
