That quote is from P.J. O'Rourke's guide to hosting a party in his
classic work, "The Bachelor's Home Companion". To me, it pretty much
sums up the appeal (what there is of it) of this film. Or to put it
another way, in his effort to construct a "screwball comedy",
Bogdonovich kept throwing things at the wall in the hopes that some of
them would stick.Fortunately, some things do.
Nothing about "Illegally Yours" is particularly inspired (in fact most
of it is strained and contrived), and no one in it is particularly
great at comedy...the best most of the actors can muster is a kind of
wide-eyed incredulity. But the plot throws so many twists and turns at
the viewer, and there are so many rapid-fire "bon-mots" and quirky
lines and bad puns that eventually the movie reduced me to a state of
mild bemusement...and after the movie had been hitting me over the head
with "funny funny funny" for 40-50 minutes. I gave in and actually
snorted with laughter once and chuckled a couple of other times. I even
guffawed once. Just once, but that's still better than anything Ben
Stiller has been able to do since "Mystery Men".
I think it was easier for American filmmakers impress American
audiences with screwball humor before Monty Python,Red Green,"Black
Adder","Fawlty Towers" and similar imports caught on here. In
comparison to Pythonesque and Newhartesque whimsy and wordplay, this
movie's script is a bit stodgy and leaden. But it's still mildly funny
even today, and none of the players (even Rob Lowe, who I've never
liked) have anything to be ashamed of here.
Do not skip your fiftieth viewing of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"
to see "Illegally Yours", but if IY is on opposite something dull and
unfunny like "Gone Fishing", you may want to check it out.
