Danny Devito is 4 Foot something, pudgy, balding, and plays a leading man across a woman that stands a foot above him, without ever making it feel unbelievable. He also stands toe to toe with Gregory Peck, in his final role. This film is a fun, if not a bit dated, look at the Corporate Takeover world of the 1980's. Danny Devito brings his character to life from the very first moment of the film, and ends it with two of the best arguments on the benefits and negatives of the corporate takeover world.
This is an ode to capitalism and a condemnation of it, it's a romance, a comedy, and a family drama, all packed into 90 minutes of entertaining back and forth repartee.
