One of my faves in youth, and still is today.
1 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw this film as a 12 year old kid, and I like it to this day. It's a simple movie, gets the needed laughs, and tries to keep the lost art of slapstick. This plenty of zingers abound in the movie, and it's pretty entertaining. The frozen bullet, the plane are damn good special effects for the time (1988). Yeah, there's plot holes, but almost every movie has those. Yeah, the story is rather implausible. But it's still entertaining. The producers knew they weren't remaking Gone with the Wind, and that's fine with me. Films about about entertainment, bottom line. And that's exactly what this one does, entertains. Now if only current film directors could learn that.
