    ★★★★½

    This is one of those movies that "they just don't make anymore".. sure, there was the remake (fun in its own right!) but a mid-budget, breezy screwball comedy? Notch another quiet success for Frank Oz, whose directorial filmography is a list of classic movies from the 80's and 90's.

    I honestly went to Wikipedia to make sure this was a parody of a Dirty Harry film.

    It isn’t. It’s real.

    It’s also real bad.

    ★★★★

    This is the film for people who watch highly technical war movies and shake their head at the stitching on the pleats of the pants on the 4th officer of the dog watch are WRONG for that particular week of that month of the war.

    I am not one of those people, but my love of Dad Movies was totally satisfied.

    ★★★★½

    Great performances, big giant epic that doesn't lose track of smaller characters, lots of getting to see skilled people doing skilled things, historical costume drama... it's just one of those films that doesn't really connect with _most_ people, and was bloody expensive to make. It feels a bit like a throwback, a folly.. we may never see it's like again.
