Why cant parodies be done like this now?

So many gags, the choice of actors is fantastic, its hard to believe now that this was Leslie Neilson's first ever comic role, but all the actors here were chosen because they always played it straight and that just adds to the comedy. Simply one of the best comedies of all time.

I'm glad I've seen this. I probably won't watch it again though. I think a lot of jokes fell short on me due to the time it was made and a lot of the other jokes were silly to me. I brushed this off however as it is a parody. I didn't dislike it, I just felt neutral about most of it.

Completely over the top comedy, but if you're in the right mood you'll be laughing all the time. Lots of bizarre situations, funny quotes and memorable characters. One of the best parodies I've ever seen!
