My favorite comedy film, starring Gene Wilder. My sister and I had a VHS tape of the movie in high school, and we watched it repeatedly. We would use all of the classic lines as our secret code, which would set off laughter while our parents were completely clueless. A favorite was “Actually, it’s I-gor.”
