If you were ever stuck on a desert island with a TV, VCR (and, let's assume, a power source), this would definitely be one of the movies you would like on hand to jolly your solitary time away. It is an insanely funny film that compares favorably with the classic screwball comedies of yesteryear. Only instead of Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant, we get Alan Arkin and Peter Falk. Although they don't quite function as a romantic duo, the pairing of the characters of Dr. Shelly Kornpett, as the deadpan, increasingly desperate dentist, with Vince Ricardo, as a renegade CIA agent extraordinaire, works wonderfully. Along with everyman Shelly, you will be sucked into the zany, alternate world of agent Ricardo. See it with friends or loved ones, because this is the kind of movie that you will be quoting to one another long after you see it. Just remember to serpentine!
