I love, love, love, love this movie! I have probably watched it beginning to end 25 times and never tire of it. Probably the only other comedy I have seen as many times is Blazing Saddles.
Dreyfuss, Garr and Johansen and especially Tilly are great. I couldn't think of anyone else playing these parts.

And to think it's just a little story about a guy at the track that is "having a very good day"!
