I found this movie entertaining, whimsical, and yet relevant, with an under-lying revisionist conceit that belied the film's emotional attachments to the subject matter. Hahaha! That's what the characters say during the ending credits about how they hope the movie is accepted.
The casting is perfect, from all the leads to all the supporting cast, and the tone of humor trumps everything, making us root for Wayne and Garth as heroes. The loose structure, the cultural references, and the way the heroes talk to the camera calls to mind past works of comic brilliance like those of the Marx Brothers, while somehow still coming across as fresh.
