Just an incredibly solid studio production like they used to make. Nothing necessarily groundbreaking. But a consistently clever & laugh-inducing comedy. Seemingly effortless. There's a very Warner Bros.-cartoon quality about it. There is also a Ferris Bueller aspect about it. I wonder if this was an influence. Hope is hilarious, but plays a kind of unrequited horndog Pepe Le Pew character, which kind of irks. Otherwise, this is a fab film! Truly, one of the great comedies. I get the sense that writers were more talented in an age when we didn't get black swan. I love how lacking in political correctness it is. However, I did think that the hell joke was particularly tasteless. Anyway, the 'Buttons and Bows' musical performance from the three leads was especially unforgettable. A delightful surprise!
