This movie makes me laugh out loud more than any other movie I have ever seen. Most "comedies" are 80% drama with some comical moments. But every single sound, gesture, and image of this film is perfectly put into place to make you laugh. If you ever have the chance to watch A Man Called Rainbo, don't miss it. This movie is becoming more and more rare, but is definitely worth tracking down. If my VHS tape ever got damaged, I would gladly pay up to $100 to replace it as this movie is truly in a class of its own! I can't praise it enough.
Sylvester Stallone as a hippie who goes AWOL, steps in radioactive dog-poo, gets hassled by a horse, attempts to start World War III, and is being hunted by government agencies as well as the District of Columbia record and tape club. This movie has it all. I don't think it's possible to be any more hilarious! I repeat - if you ever get a chance to view this film, DO NOT MISS IT!!! This is the epitome of comedy; they don't get better than this -
