    "What did he want?" "what do all men want?" "He wants you to dress as Wonder Woman, tie him up with a golden lariat and force him to tell the truth?" So many great moments in this film.

    I love this movie-my dad and I love all the lines in it.
  • Sally Kellerman reads James Joyce

    By cafeface
    Well worth watching if only for Sally Kellerman reading Molly Bloom's soliloquy from Ulysses and Dangerfield's reaction.

    Silly fun movie about a father and son. If you like Rodney Gangerfield's comedy, you will like this film. Woth the rent.

    An all time classic. Rodney was never funnier. Too many great one liners to list.

    By AGIDude
    Harold Ramis does a wonderful job again using the talents of Rodney Dangerfield, Morton Downey Jr, and Sam Kinison for a college based movie that is real enough to want to go to the university.
