    It's a rare comedy that actually grows funnier on reflection. It benefits enormously from the talents of the two stars. show more

    Above all, just plain funny. It's funny with some dumb physical humor, yes, and some gross-out jokes apparently necessary to all buddy movies, but also funny in observations, dialogue, physical behavior and Sydney Fife's observations as a people-watcher. show more

    It's a hilarious comedy made even more successful because so much of the satire seems fresh. show more
