The book is very witty in a very deadpan way. I thought it was terrific. The film, by contrast, is a lot more broad and goofy and it botches some of Gregory MacDonald's best gags.
I do realize that I'm probably being unfair to the movie. I'll see it again sometime.
Anyway, I am otherwise pro-Chevy Chase. I think he's funny.
Favorite movie: "Seems Like Old Times".
Guilty pleasure: "Spies Like Us".
