Quotes

Grace Beasley: [inviting Dirk to sit on the handlebars of her bike] It'll be just like that movie 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid' when they go bicycling together. I'll be Paul Newman and you'll be the lovely Katharine Ross. Whatever happened to the lovely Katharine Ross?
Dirk Simpson: She fell off the bike and broke her bloody neck.

Delightfully Offbeat Comedy When You Need A Boost
23 March 2013 | by museumofdaveSee all my reviews

If there's anything more difficult to share with another human than a toasted almond, it's a movie comedy; I've shared "Airplane" with folks who thought it was insufferably stupid, and there are numerous individuals who don't find the W.C. Fields masterpiece "It's A Gift" anything but a bore. When you decide that your best pal has to share Duck Soup with you, and the friend sits stone-faced as Groucho cracks wise, perhaps you even begin to question the nature of your friendship.

That said, this film provided me with genuine humor and frequent laughter; the experience seems to be created on the spot by a batch of skilled actors riffing on an impossible and often illogical script and just deciding to throw in whatever might stick to the wall--and they do it without resorting to stupid humor, to flatulent jokes or urinating dogs; instead, we have references to dozens of films, from "The Wizard of Oz" to "Don't Look Now;" even Julie Andrews appears magically on a stricken aircraft with a tuneful surprise, and...well, if you like slightly nuts, zany humor, you might find this funny. I did, loving the offbeat plot about a left-behind wife and her adventures in another country, but recommended it with caution.
