one of the best
4 February 2002 | by john.foulksSee all my reviews

I have not seen this picture in over 30 years, I think it is one of the best comedies put into a motion picture. I would like to buy it on VHS, but I feel that the motion picture of arts and science have lost it or it was not preserved
