    One of the zaniest screwball comedies ever made, a perfect example of the subversive genius of Preston Sturges. Sturges ridicules almost all the American small town values of the time in an expertly paced, relentless satire that shoots at the right targets while keeping its emotional core at the right place. The fact that it went past the Motion Picture Production Code is indeed a true miracle! 10 years 6 months ago
