There's more regressive coyness in this buddy adventure-comedy than anyone should have to sit through in a lifetime...
Unfortunately, the movie is so busy cross-polinating its genres that it never pauses for the kind of thought that might have made it really special, instead of just fitfully funny.
As a vehicle for their considerable comic talents, the enterprise is wheelclamped by typecasting.
Midler and Long are never less than fun to watch.
Such rarefied screen writing calls for the peerless talents of Arthur Hiller, a director with the comic timing of a tax auditor.
