An extremely underrated comedy...
28 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

When I started using IMDb, one of the first movies I wanted to check out was this one. I knew in the back of my mind that its rating would be low, and that not too many people would have seen it. It seems that both of my assumptions were correct. In any case, this movie is a personal favorite of mine. It's one of those films that make you feel at home (as odd as that may sound), because it's a movie my dad introduced me to when I was young, and that we've continued to watch, quite often, in all subsequent years. If you watch it as if it's a horror movie, then you're going to hate it, as I did the first time I saw it (when I was 8 or 9-years-old, I think). But, if you watch it without any preconceptions, you'll walk away with a big, dumb grin stretched across your face. One of the most quotable movies I've seen, and one of the funniest (for its sheer quirkiness). My dad and I are constantly throwing lines of this movie into conversation, most notably "Kid, I used to own thiiis cluuub. You know who used to work here? Louis Prima, Buddy Greco, Phil Harris: class!" along with "Do they do that in Vegas? Whoa! That's classy, now that's classy!". Is it Oscar worthy? Not even a little bit. Is it a perfect film? 'Course not, but it does what it's supposed to do: entertain. And very well, at that. For that reason alone, I'd say it's a great film.
