Sighs (of boredom)
I seem to recall that this made for television movie got a good review from the annual Leonard Maltin movie guide when it was still around. Watching the movie myself, I have to wonder how anyone could find something positive to say about this. It's not the worst comedy I have every seen - I admit that here and there were a few moments that made me smile slightly. But other from those isolated exception, my facial expression was one of stony tiredness. The main problem with the movie is that it simply isn't all that funny. The pacing is all off; while I was glad that the movie wasn't extremely fast-paced, the energy level here is extremely low, which doesn't exactly grab the viewer. This also extends to the story, which unfolds really slowly and is obviously padded. The cast tries its best, but with the lame script and direction, they can hardly do a thing to improve things (Harry Anderson is pushed to become quite irritating in his scenes.) If you should see a copy of this movie, simply read the title and move on - you'll have experienced the funniest thing about the movie without actually having to watch it.
