Old style still the best humor
20 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

This movie seemed really boring at first, but after about 15 mins I got it and it takes off with a loud clear resounding laugh! I was pleased to see that I was laughing at something that was actually funny for a change... in lieu of the "im so hip i chuckle at nothing because its snl" (so-called) humor. (snl hasn't been funny for 20 of the last 25 years.)

The cast is perfect in acting in the style of a 50's movie. The ones that stood out to me are:

Douglas McGrath .... Alan Quimp = brilliant brilliant delivery

Sigourney Weaver .... Daisy Quimp = she can play a real witch :)

John Torturro .... Crocker Johnson = psycho-soldier extrodinaire

Anthony LaPaglia .... Fidel Castro = warm cuddly version

See this movie if you want to be reminded that humor isn't necessarily vulgar, but just plain funny! 9/10
