Ditzy but pleasing farce in which Knotts is at his most likeable (not always the case.) Forgot how hot Elaine Joyce was in her hey day. Knotts plays and earnest and hapless accountant for city government who makes the perfect patsy for a corrupt City Council. Hijinks ensue involving Knotts' trademark jittery slapstick; a best friend who is both more and less clueless than Knotts himself; the rivalry between a hot girlfriend and a hot secretary; a stuck bowling ball; a cross-dressing granny; and a computer in a coffin. Even the sound track is almost stridently cutesy and inoffensive.
This had a bit of a sixties-sitcom feel to it, and the occasional mild sexual inuendo, while most likely somewhat blush-enducing for its time, is virtually harmless these days. Recommended for the whole family on some rainy day, in the van on a road trip, or on your iPad while flying on vacation.
