This movie is, quite simply, one of the funniest films ever made. Kevin Kline manages to create a character who is, at the same time, hilariously funny, dispicably rotten and outrageously stupid and then makes you LIKE the guy in spite of yourself. The "chemistry" between his character and Jamie Lee Curtis' equally rotten and equally likeable sexpot partner in crime is absolutely delicious and Michael Palin is, as always, Michael Palin...one of those people who just to show up to be funny. This is a classic and you can't consider yourself a true movie lover unless you've seen it at least once.
