A nostalgic gem of clean comedy

They Went That-A-Way & That-A-Way  This is one of those movies that I remember seeing when I was a kid. It was old fashioned slap-stick that made us goofy pre-teens laugh our butts off. I have always loved Tim Conway, and this is one of his prime examples of comic genius. Tim is fantastic with his timing and those goofy looks on his face. You know what’s coming next, but you don’t care because you know it will be funny, whatever it is. The part I remember the most is when he and his partner are dressed as a man and a woman and they have some kind of can that they’re carrying that has something to do with them getting out of prison, I’m not sure how. Tim keeps yelling “My wife! The can!” and the host of the party keeps telling him that the bathroom is in the house. I love this movie for the good laughs but even more for the memories of that time in my life. Me and my buddies going to the movies, yuckin’ it up and not caring about a thing in the world.

a slapstick primer

 
Gosh, & Conway even wrote this one himself. It’s fun being able to predict what is gonna be happening. I was laughing hysterically throughout this thing. It was also fun seeing so many old comedians jammed into one flick from over 30 years ago. People who read my IMDb comments know that errors in plot-logic usually annoy me but, no, this is simply funny. I’d say it ran out of steam near the very end but, heck, I’d already laughed a gazillion times by then. The only sad thing is that I have actually worked with guys like Dewey (but I’m not as humorous as McCann). Just think how wonderful a world we would live in if prison farms were really like this. ‘Certainly not as depressing as those “realistic” crime dramas I usually watch, eh? I wonder if this would make a good date movie.
