One-line Reviews (10)

It features Rodney Dangerfield at or around his acting pinnacle, as well as some early entertaining performances by Joe Pesci and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

But overall, if one ignores the flow of the movie and the separate plot lines, it was enjoyable.

Despite it being predictable and like a sit com, this was a great comedy.

Now even though I'm not a fan of Rodney Dangerfield, I have to admit that he and the rest of the cast made this film extremely enjoyable.

A nearly flawless comedy and I highly recommend it!

The misadventures of Allison and Julio could have made an enjoyable movie all by themselves.

Director James Signorelli tells the story at a constant snappy pace and does an expert job relating the delightfully raucous and rowdy sense of gleefully shameless lowbrow humor at an appropriately manic pitch.

Some truly uproarious moments including able support from wiseguy Pesci as his best friend and fellow ball-buster (the two in his deceased in-law's stodgy department store is a riot).

Too many gaps between the one liners and some situations are just fillers, but otherwise all in all watchable and enjoyable.

Forget about those hyped up banal TV shows, and rent yourself a copy of this film.
