You do need to pay attention as there are a few setups for gags later in the film and some parts may seem a little slow and confusing on the first viewing.
But I highly recommend this if you like to watch the equivalent of National Lampoons Vacation, Christmas Vacation, Scrooged, The Ice Pirates, It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World or any of the other wacky / screwball (and generally escalating out of control) comedies out there.
It may not be one of yours but is definitely one of my favourites and I am still waiting for it on DVD.
If you liked any of the films in the above list, give it a try if you see it listed.
