07.21.06Netflix This is my first time seeing this... I really get the feeling that, under the right circumstances, this could rank up there as a comedy classic. The chemistry between Peter Falk and Alan Arkin is really great, and the movie's filled with gags that are already growing on me. The big thing though is that the performances are subtle enough to pick up more and more and also project more and more the more you see it. This is something that I actually mostly smirked at while watching it but found myself laughing more than once while i re-watched it with the commentary track. I actually find it similar to Caddyshack. Aside from Bill Murray, I don't think that movie is hilarious on its own. Thanks to a group of friends that obsessed over it for a month or two however, it now cracks me up every few minutes. Of course that's only a guess since I've really only seen this once, but I get that vibe from it. And undeniably, Falk and Arkin are great. SERPENTINE! SERPENTINE!
