I can agree with the other review only that this is a hilarious. I do not at all share the view that this excellent remake pales the original. No way. Now, let me say this: I generally detest remakes and sequels. They are generally only bland rehashes of the original and add nothing new. There are exceptions: The Godfather, Part II comes to mind, largely because of the introduction of Robert De Niro and making it a prequel. But, this film is great. The story line shifts as the bumbling Richard engages in some clever antics, again fraught with the comedy of errors approach and perfectly timed slapstick. The script is great and departs from the original, giving it a fresh, exciting approach. I don't think it is as hilarious as the original but the beauty of that is, this film is different enough to make it thoroughly enjoyable. Une fois plus, s.v.p.!
