Extremely Zany with a few funny moments
23 June 2001 | by rwintSee all my reviews

Zany far out satire about a man who is fired from his job when he grows a beard to cover up a bee sting. Thus begins a long line of wacky characters, wild camera angles and situations. Has a few funny moments to keep this from being the complete bomb all the other critics say it is. Best part comes when in a show of solidarity all the co-workers begin to wear fake beards, even the women! Angie Dickinson helps the scenary and Johnny Mandel gives a very bouncy score.
