Mostly. A few jokes die on me like the "mawwiage" crap (strike that one off the list) and the second act feels like a lull which is nowhere near as memorable as it's beginning or ending, but are gems all throughout. My problem with the movie is, once again, the romance (I'm like a broken record aren't I?).
For one, Cary Elwes has never been good to me, I can enjoy Men in Tights in the vein of being a stupid movie, and Cary Elwes feeds into that by being a tad unbearable.
While you'd think that kind of passion would be able to fuel all sorts of lengthy paragraphs elaborating on each and every little thing that I might like about a film, I find that those kinds of reviews can be a little boring to write.
