I agree completely with TVGirl's review. This is a really funny movie with a first-rate cast, from top to bottom. Bruce Willis, Kim Basinger, John Laroquette, and William Daniels couldn't be better; there is a bonus appearance by Graham Stark, who played the flunky policeman in the Pink Panther movies, and there is not one dud performance or moment. It is fast-paced, imaginative, and just really funny. It doesn't rely on graphic sex or a gross or smutty script filled with smutty language (or that hack Robin Williams) to make you laugh. I can hardly believe this is a Hollywood production, it's so all-round classy. I caught this on cable not long after its release in 1987-88, so it was not a big box-office hit. Probably because the critics whizzed all over it (see my above remarks about "graphic sex," "gross," and "smutty") -- pretentious critics apparently only like graphic, gross, and smutty in their comedies. This is on my personal list of "perfect" movies and is in my personal collection. Every time I introduce someone to it, they can't believe how funny it is -- usually because they haven't heard of it.
