After reading some of the negative comments posted I'm wondering if any of these folks saw that same movie I did. This movie works on several levels. Yes, Marlon Brando's performance (essentially lampooning his "Don Corleone" role in "The Godfather") is outstanding. But so are the other actor's performances. Matthew Broderick's take on the ever increasing absurdity that goes on around him is priceless. The whole thing hangs together very well, even as it gets wierder and wierder. Jimmy the Toucan rocks! (Although "No one really calls him that.")
