(nl) wrote: Pretty damn good satire, if I do say so myself. I didn't live anywhere near the 60's, but I can safely say that Iron Man's dad pushed quite a few buttons back in the day. As dastardly satires go, this knocked quite a few humorous conventions out of the way. Fake (so screwed up they should be real) advertisements interspersed throughout the narrative? Complete racial and gender role reversals to demonstrate double standards? It is farce at it's furthest extent, and well worth a watch. And many modern comedies could take a few cues from this film and ditch the hackneyed pop-culture references.

(us) wrote: Musicals are a serious hard sell but Jon Carney movies are the exception. He really knows how to make a story that is honest and has heart wrapped in song. Also helps that the songs are very good as well. This is almost as good as Once...almost.
