The Man With Two Brains (1983) ***1/2

How I managed to only see The Man With Two Brains (1983) for the first time tonight is beyond me. It's incredibly funny, very much in the Zucker Bros style of physical humor, and I've never heard it mentioned as a great comedy. I bought it based on the Martin/Reiner combo, since I really enjoy The Jerk (1979), and I'm glad I did. I love the quirky score for this film too - a mix of Italian sounding prog with 80s synths. Looks like I'll have to pick up Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (1982) and finally get around to seeing that as well.
