A Must Watch Again if rated Less Than a 7-10
24 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of my All Time Favorites! Elizabeth Perkins is at top of her comedic game and Rita Perlman was great fit on dispatcher. The older sister completed the circle of laughter and is always guaranteed to make one laugh out loud!! Anyone rating this flick less than a 7-10 may reflect stress (excessive) and distraction in your life?! By all means, one would need to relax & watch after exercising, running, or of course, a glass of wine or your favorite relaxation aid and enjoy the film ... for the first time (again!)!! Judge Reinhold is hilarious as his character comes to life without having to (or appearing to; smile) act out the character. Reinhold's over-zealous action seeking sidekick and partner on the force, is non other than the principal from Ferris Beulers Day Off fame. I've bought the DVD & also have it on the Laser Disc. It's a movie worth watching (& re-rating) as if the first attempt didn't yield a 7+ rating the 2nd time will! The comic genius of the characters, background music and perfect type-cast of Perkins and Reinhold makes this film, well, a Comedic Gem in which the Good, The Bad, and The Ugly accidents in life ...and the decisions to fix or clean them up don't always go according to plan!
