What a hoot! Steve Martin at his wild and crazy best!
I loved it. Hit my funny bone in a BIG way. The scene on the couch was Steve Martin as I remember him at his wild and crazy (SNL) best! There are sooooo many good lines! How could you have found a better, laughable, racist than Betty White? And Eugene Levy attracted to the "dark side"...... I laugh until I hurt every time I watch it. Remember, the humor is so tongue in cheek, you can't take it seriously. Jean Smart has always been one of my favorites, but lacks a little pizzaz in this one--she's the only one I was disappointed in. Hello, you coco goddess! I especially like the banter between Charlene and the ex-sister-in-law. Ex-sister-in-law reminds me of a WKRP Jennifer, gone bad! Mark it down as one of my favorites!
