Is anyone ELSE sick of seeing people being kicked in the privates ? This act, usually in mostly witless movies has replaced the pie in the face and pants falling down as the ultimate cheap "laff". I mean how many times do we need to see this? You just KNOW that the writers are out of ideas when you see this stuff!

I was a senior in high school when this movie came out. I didn't see it, but I remember seeing the trailer, and I remember exactly what young me thought to himself as I rolled my eyes, "Oh my God, this really looks like two super-pathetic old dudes trying desperately to grab to some long-forgotten glory". Or words to that effect. My brain at that age may not have phrased it quite that elegantly. I had just enough classic movie knowledge to know who they were. I'd seen Saturn 3 and Atlantic City on HBO, so I'd seen at least one movie each with them.

Now, thirty-plus years later, I'm thinking, this film is a natural for TCM to show given its two stars, and I would absolutely watch it! Crossing my fingers and hoping for the best!

What a let-down. I kept waiting for that fence to fall square onto the bears cajones.
Although, aside from that disappointment, I agree, funny and cute!  :)

Like the scene from Alien Nation (1988), where cop James Caan discovers that crotch-kicks don't work on aliens, and alien partner Mandy Patinkin advises him, "I believe the effect you were trying to achieve would be here, under the armpit."

I repeat a post I made last year, in the "Movies you wished ended differently" thread:

Pieces (1982) is a great Spanish-American horror film. But I wish that the hand of the dead monster didn't reach up and grab Ian Sera's crotch, presumably castrating him, at the end of the film.

Ruth Gordon - 2:00 into trailer.

Never heard of that movie but -wow- is fighting supposed to be funny? It suppose it is when there's Three Stooges sound effects. 

That orangutan is named Clyde, but is really a female.

Personally, I see the kick in the crotch running neck-and-neck with the passing of gas as the "go-to cheap laff". in many movies of the last couple of decades.

Punches / slaps / hits in movies are made by Foley artist.
