Lithgow is always good
24 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really looked forward to a new comedy starring John Lithgow. This one is pretty funny even though there is a lot of ridiculousness to it. The secretary who can't remember faces and feints when she sees beauty, and laughs at inappropriate times, etc. could get old.

The one thing I find irritating is that too many comedies these days rely on raunchy jokes. Some writers can make any subject hilarious, but too many of them write jokes in the way which remind me of what I used to think was funny when I was 10 years old. At least John Lithgow has a way of making even stupid jokes seem innocent and funny. So it is worth watching for him.
