I will fight to the death to say that this is one of the funiest comedies of all time.

En garde, my poor, deluded ami. But wait, in honor of my French in-laws, I will let this pass - each to his own.

I assumed I was the only person in the world who thought this movie was funny, but I'm glad I'm not alone.

Ah, a budding folie à deux? ;-)

Too much, too soon, he always seemed to me - and he can be such a nice chap in the real world.

I love The Bellboy (and its companion, The Errand Boy). I even made a point of visiting the Fountainbleu when I was in Miami a while back, although they've renovated all the fun out of that place. Thank goodness the Eden Roc was right next door.

My mother pulled me out of this when I was a child (and, as I recall, I needed very little coaxing).
