I don't know what all the negative comments are about. This film is absolutely superb fun. It has been my family's favorite comedy for years. We've got more funny lines from this film than any other.
This is Martin Short at his best. He plays the part to perfection. His facial expressions, body movements, and vocal intonations are exactly what this character needed. I'd like to see all these negative people do better!
Danny Glover is excellent as well. The perfect complement to Short. I can't wait to add Pure Luck to my DVD collection. If anyone knows of an on-line petition for getting this movie to DVD, please let me know!! I'm there.
