Script by Nathanael West makes a difference.
This wasn't the long haul snoozer I expected - it's a pretty crazy story with a few spontaneous song breaks, but the dialog is a cut above the usual wisecrack-and-retort stuff. A couple of pompous boobs go into bizarre monologues and the repartee is fairly sophisticated and witty. This is a bit stranger and a bit better than the run of the mill.
