This is a very funny film, even though it is quite old now and most of the cast is long gone. The film belongs to Goldie Hawn. It really shows off her comedic talent as the height of her long career. The supporting cast is excellent, even Chevy Chase which i never cared for as an actor. He is now a cast member of Community, in which he does a great job. As for the film, it is the story of a young woman in the wrong place at the wrong time, and unfortunately finding herself involved in an assassination plot. She has to beware of the midgets, they are taking over the world, if you've seen it then you understand. Burgess Meredith has some of the funniest scenes. She also has to beware of an up and coming Dudley Moore, doing what he does best, while trying to keep herself from getting murdered. Will she succeed? Watch it and see. Also, the movie does run a little too long, perhaps some editing could have made it a 10. Remember this is a light-hearted comedy, so bring your popcorn, cherry coke and light heart and you will enjoy it.
