This film is a COMEDY dealing with NAZI WAR CRIMINALS. It's not funny unless you have no compassion at all for the millions of people killed during the Holocaust. THE low point in the respective careers of Jack Lemmon, Dan Aykroyd, and Lily Tomlin. They should be ashamed of themselves, the director should be ashamed of himself, anyone who's ever watched this film and not been disgusted should be ashamed of themselves. This movie did not have to be made, it's not funny, and if it's giving any message, it's one you shouldn't listen to. Not only should you not buy or watch this film, but every print that was ever made of it should be launched directly into the surface of the sun.
