Classic Dangerfield style of comedy. There are some good one-liners.

Probably Dangerfield's best leading roll, but not his best roll ever, that would be in Caddyshack. It's like a time capsule that has all of the great things we love about 80s movies: a cheesy synth heavy soundtrack, the obligatory boob shot, the great obvious stereotypes of people (jocks, nerds, losers, rich kids), some-sort-of montage (this time it's a driving one) and of course the great Dangerfield one-liners. The best scene, though, Sam Kinison as a stark-raving mad history professor. This film also features the single greatest dive in movie history, the Triple Lindy. As a flashback of sorts to a time when movies were just fun, this is it, as a movie as a whole, it's just okay.
