I grew up on this movie. Comedy Central used to air it about 5 times a week (sometimes more often). My mother and father were big Gene Wilder/Gilda Radner fans and they were particularly fond of this movie. Whenever it aired, we watched it. Maybe that's part of my allegiance. But I sincerely don't believe that there is much else funnier than Dom Deluise sliding down a railing, dressed in drag. I've dreamed of this movie after watching it, and even the dream was funny. I admit, the humor isn't very high-brow, but that's OK. The "I have to use the can!" and "get happy" sequences are pretty funny. Like I said before, the movie isn't going to stimulate anyone intellectually. But if you just tune your mind to "pun," this movie should amuse you enough.
