Critic Review - Combustible Celluloid

This slapstick comedy -- with Steve Martin playing the fussy straight man -- should never have worked, but it does, and well enough to earn a place as a holiday classic.

Jeffrey M. Anderson, you know nothing about slapstick comedy.

At least you like this movie - though you think it's slapstick.

"Sweet enough for the whole family" Really? If the "F" word scene was removed... and the other crude language... this film would have been a holiday classic.
