A Good Solid Comedy Movie
26 February 2008 | by (Washington, USA) – See all my reviews

As you may know, comedy is the most difficult art form of all. To make people laugh, all people, young, old, white, Asian or black, male and female, is truly the finest art form. This movie pulls it off. You have some over weight young black orderlies who can not only laugh at themselves, but make you laugh with every line, every nuance and subtle gesture they conjure up in this movie. Ralph Bellamy plays the consummate straight guy and doesn't miss a beat, esp. at his age. My 15 year old son watched it once and we split our sides laughing. My son is 30 now and he asked me if I wanted to watch that movie with him again. "Yeah" I said. We could use more laughs. We could use more young actor/comedians, especially ones from our own minority groups here in the good ol' USA. This is a funny movie and its probably more hilarious the second time around.
