Praise where it's due!

First time I've seen Greggio, but I look forward to seeing him again. He possesses a strong comedic talent and has impeccable timing. Set against the character portrayed by Brooks, a spark was clearly struck, and I enjoyed the movie immensely. They were some intolerably silly bits, but I have always felt that about such genius comedians as the Goons, - in particular Peter Sellars, and Norman Wisdom, and no comedy can run on constant perfection, so I'm not moaning. From a purely selfish viewpoint, I would like to see more of, and find out more about, Simona D'Angelo who played the mother on the plane. Very pretty, very sexy. Ahhh!
