Kevin Kline is unbelievably hilarious. He gives my favorite comedic performance of all time here. And the movie itself is very funny and it has a good story. Jamie Lee Curtis is also very funny. John Cleese as usual is one of the most hilarious people ever. Michael Palin is great as usual.

I wonder...uhhh, I wonder.

a classic that has been imitated, parodied, and stolen from countless times. Michael Palin giving that Wile E Coyote energy in the 2nd act had me laughing for like 5 minutes straight.
