A totally hilarious film, which builds it's comic moments from an unbelievable premise. Director-star Woody Allen plays a nebbish (big surprise), who goes south of the border and ends up in a bizarre revolution. Allen eventually becomes, unwillingly of course, the leader of the cause for freedom.

Allen has assembled a brilliant comedy, with outrageous sight gags galore and some truly memorable one liners. You have to remember that this was before Allen got into the part of his career, which most film historians dub his "chamber film" period. The comedy here is mostly impressive use of slapstick and pantomime, the likes of which Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin would be proud. It has to be seen to be believed! And don't forget to catch Howard Cosell's hysterical play-by-play coverage of an assassination.

My Rating = Four Stars
