Trivia

During the beginning part of the film, Jonathan Brandis' character Matthew calls Rodney Dangerfield's character Chester, "Chesterfield". Jonathan had a habit in real life of referring to certain friends in jest by adding 'field' to the end of their names. It is rumored by some who knew him that he carried this over into the film and adlibbed "Chesterfield" as a kind of inside joke. See more »

*INTOLERABLE!*
12 October 2001 | by (Phoenix Arizona) – See all my reviews



Question: Why is such a charming movie intolerable? Answer: Because there is nothing in it you *need* to tolerate! With this movie, you *don't* have to endure scene after eye-rolling scene of toilet humor, sexual schadenfreude, and politically-correct-preaching just to get to a very few fetid laughs. By contrast, this movie is pure silly fun and it is laugh-out-loud contagious!

Rodney Dangerfield's schtick is in full-effect in this early 90's comedy-romp about a hapless Joe whose search for love (and respect) leads him on a rather crooked path. He delightfully loses his way while enlisting the likes of a self-help guru, his coworker, his boss, his girlfriend's estranged son, and even a girls' soccer team in his quest to get married.

Naysayers will nit-pick about the improbable nature of the double-identity situations or about how the team came together in the end or any number of any other situations in this flick. To them I say, "So what?" These are the same people who would pick apart a Marx Brothers film because of the "contrived" appearance of a harp for Harpo to play or on the "stupidity" of the people who believe Dr. Quackenbush (Groucho) is a real doctor! It's a COMEDY, people!

All that being said, I must say this is picture is a true gem and I couldn't end this review without mentioning my favorite "Ladybugs" quote -- Rodney Dangerfield (mustering all the humanity he can into this one line): "What's the point in being the best, if it only brings out your worst?"

9/10!
