"Man" is always likable. Indeed, the film works hard to be so. One longs, though, for a glimpse of the humanity behind the shtick and comic gestures. The film just never gets that intimate with its characters.
Kline's performance as Henry -- regal in its classical stage pronunciations -- is clearly the best thing in the film. But the character still fails to resonate; Henry isn't much more than a bag of peculiarities.
