Added DiffLines:

* HiddenDepths: General Stillwell is tougher than leather, coldly competent, and takes charge of every situation...but he gets misty-eyed while watching Dumbo. Robert Stack's performance is one of the highlights of the film.

* AbhorrentAdmirer: {{Exaggerated}} with both Stretch and Maxine in different ways - Stretch's pursuing of Donna is extremely creepy and evocative of rape, while Maxine, knowing and seeing how Stretch is terrorizing Donna, declares him the 'perfect man' and spends the rest of the film chasing after him, screaming his name, and punching anyone who gets between her and 'her man'.

Spielberg, with the combined backing of ''two'' major studios (Creator/{{Universal}} and [[Creator/ColumbiaPictures Columbia]]), spared no expense on this film. It has special effects rivaling those of "serious" UsefulNotes/WorldWarII epics and the cast reads like a who's who list of comedy in the [[TheSeventies 1970s]]. All in the service of {{Slapstick}}. Unfortunately, it was a critical bomb and received disappointing box office numbers (though it wasn't the complete flop it's usually remembered as), and stands as the one black mark in Spielberg's otherwise-outstanding run of blockbusters between 1975 and 1982. It has defenders, but they are small in number and most of them ''still'' agree it isn't as good as the other movies from this period.
