I remember when this movie first came out, my best friend from high school introduced me to it and we would quote it endlessly. Unfortunately, he passed away about almost 20 years ago (RIP, James!); but I will always remember how much fun we had re-enacting scenes from this film.
Luckily, someone was smart enough to release it on DVD; as my video tape was starting to wear out. I still find it intensely hilarious (make that hysterical!) and it's as fresh and funny as it was almost 30 years ago when it was released! See how many stars you can spot, and enjoy this Hudson Brothers' masterpiece! It lives up to the title, and is worth owning as every time you watch it you'll see something new!
