This is one of my favorite movies with Robin Williams. Normally, he is so out of control, it's difficult to watch him. This time, he steps back a little and lets the other funny people take a turn. Peter O'Toole stole the picture, as far as I'm concerned, with his droll delivery. Even Twiggy was a pleasant surprise. Loved the Jimmy Clift music, and the Adolph Cesear as the blustery military leader. The two Barrys (Moranis and Levy) had some of the best lines as they tried to score some marijuana. And I'll never pronounce White the same way after Andrea Martin gave it her own special twist. This is a great movie to watch in the dead of winter. It will warm you right up.
