The Secret of My Succe$s (1987)
All things considered, not a bad film
This movie is a little enigmatic. On the one hand, it's a formulaic comedy based on the tried n' true double-personality theme. On the other, it's very well acted and the photography is generally excellent. While the script leaves something to be desired at times, it does have some clever dialog. And in spite of it being squeaky clean in terms of swearing and nudity, it has some pretty subversive elements as well...you can't get much more vulgar than the beer can scene, or incest for that matter.
How can such a predictable movie be so entertaining? I really don't know the answer. The slapstick element was very well done, and Whitton's character falling face-first off the stairs especially comes to mind.
