Admittedly, the storyline weaves all over the place, but no matter - Chase's performance and a plethora of daft and witty situations carry it past some structural rough spots.

A breezy, peppy frolic and a tour de force for Chase.

This could be Bob Hope material c1942 and Chase does acquit himself well (though with cool reserve) in the gags-to-plot transitions. What dulls the enterprise is that Ritchie so keeps his distance from every character.

Whenever the move threatens to work, there's Chevy Chase with his monotone, deadpan cynicism, distancing himself from the material.

A lightweight, breezy experience that, by never pretending to be anything more than what it is, disarms criticism.
