Review by Jean P. M. (posted on 26-Sep-2005)

I saw this movie as a young teen. It made such a lasting impression on me with its wit and subtle humor. I was able to watch it many more time when it was shown on HBO in the 80's. This movie has not been shown for many years now in my areas and that is such a loss. I have tried unsuccessfully to find a copy to buy or rent, but have been told that it is unavailable.

Wilder, along with Kahn, Feldman and the others, will have you rolling in the aisle from start to finish. I can still sing the song, "Kangaroo Hop". This is a great showcase of the talent of this wonderful cast that went on to star in Blazing Saddles, Stir Crazy and so many more that you lose count.

If you can find this movie, don't miss out!
