It's also one of those movies that people don't often "get" upon the first viewing. I've heard that from a lot of folks and it was the case with me too. I saw it in the theater with my dad when it was released. I was 15 so some of the humor may have gone over my head and/or been too bizarre for me but both me and my dad were sort of lukewarm. It wasn't that we didn't enjoy it- it just sort of confused us with its originality. Then when I watched it again, I immediately realized that not only was it one of my favorite comedies, it was indeed a brilliant noir and certain scenes are just constructed brilliantly. Definitely a film that gets better with subsequent viewings.
