Rating: 7/10 -- A bawdy good time. All but stolen by Charles Durning as the sidestepping governor and Dom DeLuise as the leader of the decency police.

...Rollicking, good-natured, a bit spicy and with just enough heart...

Title says it all! Movie Lover: from LAS VEGAS, NV US -- April, 13, 2012

Burt and Dolly are wonderful in this movie! If you have never seen this movie before, you are in for a surprising treat!! It is a fun romp - it smacks of humorus reality regarding politics and media manipulation! Fun upbeat movie! The music is great also.
