I remember the first time i saw this movie as a 16 year old boy just over 30 years ago, me and a friend rented it from the local video store one afternoon and most afternoons from then on. Hysterical has to be my all time favorite comedy, i must have seen it a hundred times at least and even now when i put it on and i hear the words....hi i'm frederick lansing glad you could join me.....i start to smile knowing whats coming next. I've read most of the reviews and they seem to be quite mixed but like most things you either love it or you hate it and i have to say i love it.......i'm glad they brought it out on DVD in the end as my video was on its last legs although i don't think they should have added the far too long musical number. all in all if you do watch it i can honestly say you will enjoy it.......but you will probably have to be around my age (46) to get all the movie references. enjoy.
acker jawaka YOUR DOOMED!!!!
I have just read through all the reviews for this movie again and cannot believe what some people have said about it.........have they watched the same movie as me or is there another film out there with the same name they have watched by mistake lol. You would have to be in a coma not to find this movie funny, i know its not to everyones taste but come on......1 star...........that said not everybody is blessed with a sense of humour just the self importance lol. Look at her eyes...............I've scored
