Why not
18 July 2020 | by treborybradSee all my reviews

After seeing so many scathing reviews I decided to watch it anyway. In covid times this movie provides light relief and a chuckle here and there. I do forgive the short comings of the film. Paul Hogan portrays a sense of sadness which revolves around the aging process and that gives the film some merit and a few bitter sweet humorous moments. Like the weaker of the Marx Brothers movies the world is a better place that they exist rather than not.
