These 3 points went to David Hollander. Without him this film would have been a dud.

I'm not sure that this is among the best comedies ever made, as some have claimed; my own best comedies list would feature Jacques Tati's M. Hulot's Holiday and Mon Oncle, Pierre Étaix's The Suitor and Le Grand amour, Harold Lloyd's The Freshman and Safety Last!, Buster Keaton's Sherlock Jr and, go on, Withnail and I too. But that's a matter of personal taste, and this one is quite special: not exactly sophisticated, but very funny and very sharp.
