A wonderful comedy! Richard Dreyfuss is having a very good day and so do I whenever I see this movie. Such characters! You WILL to root for Trotter if not for his band of misfit hanger-onners. And Jennifer Tilly does what Jennifer Tilly does best. I can't find a single thing wrong with this movie, and it held my attention and completely entertained. I give it a 10.
