Rodney Dangerfield was great!

I just saw this and loved Rodney Dangerfield's acting in this!

THe other cast members - Sally Kellerman, Burt Young, Keith Gordon, M. Emmet Walsh and Robert Downey, Jr. were also very good.

Director Alan Metter knew how to capture Dangerfield's quality and came up - THumbs Up!
