Gets funnier and more poignant with repeated viewings
5 August 2003 | by (Belvedere, CA) – See all my reviews

A ring-tailed wonder of a non-stop spritzer with a dynamite cast headed by the incredible Nathan Lane. One of Neil Simon's all-time best, worth seeing over and over. It ranks with the classic comedies of Billy Wilder and Preston Sturges.
