Before we get started, I know about the whole Chevy Chase relying on sight gags and low brow humor thing. That being said, I’ve always enjoyed the match up with Goldie Hawn. The scrabble game is still one of my favorite 30 second scenes in movie history. Dudley Moore is a scream, Burgess Meredith and Eugene Roche also turn in noteworthy performances. What really made this work for me however was the Pope, smiling, tapping his toes, and swaying to the music of, “The Mikado,” while one of the most improbable action sequences ever unfolds around him. The humor is low brow, but at the same time it’s clever, which makes this one fun.
