Reviews
Mine: Great comedy. Falk and Arkin are hilarious. Great energy, it never gets dull.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Wacky comedy about a dentist (Arkin) who becomes involved in the bizarre intrigues of his daughter's father-in-law-to-be (Falk), who claims to be a CIA agent. Andrew Bergman's script commendably unpredictable start to finish; Libertini hilarious as Latin dictator with a Seņor Wences fetish. Enjoyable score by John Morris.
