I am partly writing this review in response to some of the other reviewers on here that mention how unlikeable some of the characters are in this film. How can it be missed that their neurotic tendencies are supposed to be part of the comedic element??
This film is nothing more than something to watch when you have nothing else to do and are in the mood for a couple of laughs. It has its poignant moments, it is well paced, is well acted by most of the cast. I especially liked Molly McClure as Mama Wheelis. Her role reminded me of a Ma Kettle-type character (for those of you who remember or know who Marjorie Main is).
I thought that this film was much better than a lot of today's comedies...most of which contain the same 'ol predictable bathroom, endowment and sexual orientation jokes and are painfully unfunny.
