Many plot lines diverge for silliness
10 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Granted, the last time I saw this was at a midnight movie in college, but I remember that poor, sad beaver trying to find a tree to eat - it was so funny. You haven't lived till you've seen a guy in a beaver costume dance disco. What I remember about this movie is that there are several funny scenarios that seem separate, but all the plot lines tied up into one and it all made sense at the end. This movie has spoof after spoof - I loved how in the middle of a completely different story, the disco beaver would wander through the scene. Wish I could see it again now that I'm in my 40's - might have a different take on it. If you like Airplane, Top Secret or any Abrams/Zucker movie, you'd probably like this.
