    1. That is an insult to Ted Knight's character and the movie.

    2. Guess I shouldn't speak ill of the dead.

      It's just that we're six months in and the best 5-pound gob of earwax covered in butterscotch cotton candy/screaming apricot/rotting ham in a wig tropes have all been used up.

      Sorry, Murray brothers. Chevy Chase also but less so.

    Or even Olivia Wilde.
