I guess I'm showing my age by admitting I remember Steve Martin when he was funny. I also remember Jim Carrey being a comedian, Ozzy a singer and the Kardashians being whorish. Oh wait, that last one still applies.

"I can't f*** a gorilla!" Hilarious.

This gets by with so much charm. Martin has the best line delivery with "I couldn't fuck a gorilla".

LOL funny. It starts weak but then becomes the better of the Steve Martin films I've seen (I didn't like The Jerk). Kathleen Turner is very attractive. Almost every scene was packed with humor. Fav scene: "I can't fuck a gorilla."

The ease with which Steve Martin turns unparalleled silliness into surreal genius is a wonder to behold. It's a relentless, ridiculous movie that had me giggling throughout. What really makes this film work is the performances - Martin and Kathleen Turner just throw themselves into these roles, completely nailing that nonsensical, over-serious tone that the film lovingly mocks.

It seems gentle and quiet compared to the unrelenting noise of current American comedy, but there are good gags in every scene and the whole thing is just fun and really nicely done.

For me this is Martin's comedy pretty much at its peak. So well timed, writen and performed, and really could watch this over and over. Love this movie.

A fairly decent Steve Martin comedy from the 1980s, which has its moments at times and is probably worth the $5.99 your local movie merchant wants for the DVD.

Amiable numbskull-ery, but nothing that rises above previous Carl Reiner-Steve Martin collaborations. Nonetheless, a pretty accurate representation of the libido's affect on the male psyche.

Steve Martin is great, and there are some absolutely hilarious bits in here, but I'm confused why they stuck with the Kathleen Turner storyline until the bitter end. A sci-fi comedy in which a brain surgeon falls in love with an actual brain should have been more than enough. Overall I did like it, and have to give points for the running gag with his last name, the bit with Merv Griffin, and the murmur joke.

arguably Steve Martin's best performance, and the film i direct people to when mentioning him

A semi-masterpiece of dead-pan drollery; meeting at the junction between Mel Brooks and ZAZ, this is a fast paced and witty delight, handled expertly by Reiner, but elevated by the performances of Martin, Turner and Spacek, who take Martin's riotiously absurd screenplay and play it dead straight (coming off the back of BODY HEAT, Turner is especially wonderful). Holds together right up to the finale and even finds the perfect punchline to finish on! Great fun, above all else.

Steve Martin at one of his more immature, 'King Tut' era moments. Good for a laugh if you enjoyed The Jerk. Otherwise, nothing spectacular. Thank you, the 80's, for making us twenty-somethings feel even more awkward about ourselves.

Steve Martin is a funny guy, but he often didn't make the best choices. T.M.W.T.B is regarded as one of his better films from his prime period, and it's understandable why this offbeat premise appealed to him. It's essentially an updated throwback to old sci-fi formulas about the abuse of science in the hands of the crazed and/or desperate. It's an appropriately cast film with Turner as the clear standout as Martin's psychotic wife, but the chuckle meter remains firmly in the green.

It wasn't painful to watch, but I don't remember smiling once during this. Very silly even on Steve Martin's scale.

A Hilarious Frankenstein parody! Steve Martin at his best. Brilliant gags. Watch out for the elevator murderer ;) .

Although it is against my better judgement, this movie is great and Steve Martin is hilarious.

There were actually some really funny screwball comedies in the early-to-mid eighties. Some of the best ones starred Steve Martin.

A decent Steve Martin film. Easy gag humour and one steamy sex scene.

It's kinda funny, but Steve Martin in his prime is the only reason this movie is worth watching now.
