Movie where a character reads Catch-22?


Hi there,

I've recently read Catch-22 (and loved it) because I remember once seeing a movie where a character was reading it. I cannot for the life of me remember what the movie was. This is what I remember:

- A character has waited a long time to finally read that book in peace (I think)
- When he reads it he finds it absolutely hilarious
- I think it was just a side character and I don't remember it being important to the plot
- I think the movie was quite old
- From what I remember you basically see that char a few times reading the book

I really hope someone knows what I'm referring to. The only thing I'm really sure about is the character laughing so hard at the book, which is why I had wanted to read it.

Many thanks in advance!

Long shot: As I recall, one of the supporting characters in Big Wednesday, Mrs Barlow (Barbara Hale), spends the movie putting up with her son's friends, but would rather be reading Catch-22.
