I first encountered this movie either in college or in high school. It was on late at night on some random channel. It stuck in my mind because it had a very young Val Kilmer and it turned out to be slapstick. This combination and the foggy memory of the fog of whatever had occurred previously in the night that led up to that viewing has colored my memory of the movie.
Last night that memory was torn asunder as the clarity of mind and spirit brought the plot, lazy jokes, and pure cheesiness into sharp focus. The movie starts out strong with weird almost dada musical number. It then has some great sight gags and even an unexpected twist on an old painting joke. (i would hang val’s painting in my house). It quickly devolves into endless juvenile sex jokes. I wouldn't’ mind this as much if they kept up the more clever gags. I think this may also be different from how I first saw the movie as it was edited for TV. The cheap jokes made this movie feel juvenile and filled me with longing for the high-brow-by-comparison airplane series.
Anyway sorry about this pick. D
