*INTOLERABLE!*
12 October 2001 | by 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!
