My younger brother and I used to watch this movie and laugh our rears off. It's along the lines of Airplane, only much much more packed with clichés, puns and innuendos.
The scenes are outrageous (Bill gets jealous at the company picnic and tries to outdo some macho stud on the mechanical bull, Bill and Carol get into some body painting, but kind of miss the tube of super glue mixed in with the paints, Bill's attempts to get the hens at work to produce more eggs are rather unconventional and utter failures, to the audience's benefit).
The movie is stupid, takes things Very literally ("Palimony is a word on everyone's lips these days" = the court attendees with signs displaying the word "palimony" attached to their mouths) and just about anyone can get the jokes. That's part of what makes it fun. It's far from being a deep, thought-invoking or intellectually stimulating flick. Then again, I believe it was never Intended to be those things. I am under the impression that if you do not enjoy puns, you likely would be unable to appreciate the humor in this movie.
