The funniest film I have EVER seen!
17 November 2010 | by aytojonesSee all my reviews

I just got this film from a bargain bucket supermarket for 99p and watched it with my girlfriend. In my pants (this has no relevance to the review, just wanted to paint a picture). We thought this was going to be crap to be honest, but were BLOWN AWAY! This film is brilliant. It has elements of all the great Hollywood comedies of the 1940's and 1950's, but updated with a modern (well, 1990's) vibe. Judge Reinhold is majestic in the lead role, slipping effortlessly between high slapstick and intense melancholy about the life he has chosen. He is (at least in this movie), Phil Silvers and Jack Lemmon rolled into one - but funnier than both. Even Judge's look is hilarious, as he looks like Clark Gable with a cheeky side. This is a great family movie (apart from a couple of well placed obscenities) and we couldn't believe it was so underrated. It is up there with any of my favourite movies, and i'll be sure to watch it again and again! LOVED IT!!!!
