Number of Times Seen – Probably about 5 times (cable in the 80’s and 20 Nov 2014)
Brief Synopsis – A man will be able to inherit millions of dollars if he reforms himself within a year.
My Take on it – This was Rodney Dangerfield’s first starring role and this character was perfect for him.
His insult humor worked beautifully and I found myself laughing hysterically so many times.
The script is silly, but Dangerfield’s presence and humor clearly makes up for it.
I’m a huge fan of Billy Joel, so the fact that he sings the title song is an added bonus. Such a great song!
Bottom Line – Dangerfield’s insult comedy works so well here and the movie is interspersed with lots of great one liners. The script itself is somewhat weak, but Dangerfield makes up for it with his presence. Great title song. Recommended!
Rating – BAFTA Worthy
