afi has this as one of the 100 funniest american films ever. according to my dad it was a partial influence of p.t. anderson’s for boogie nights. i’ve seen it twice now and laughed probably 6 times total. it’s basically a piece of shit that follows wilt chamber, er, warren beatty as he lays pipe all around town. there are some humorous situations, but it mostly fails to produce actual laughs. there are 2-3 actual laughs in here so it’s not a total waste, but it produces fewer laughs per minute than the average cbs sitcom, and i can’t even name one cbs sitcom so that’s saying something. in the end it tries for a tender moment and fails. don’t bother.
