With ping-pong as the theme behind this movie, I didn't know what to expect. I loved it! Very funny! Walken is hysterical in his role. Great writing. My kind of humor.....not so much the slapstick, but the lines that were spoken and the way that they were delivered. No showboating here.
Print shirts with polyester suits... bad hair... jazz flute... misogyny. Plenty of reasons to dislike the 1970s, and a lot of reasons to enjoy the spoofs in this extremely light comedy. Christina Applegate is suprisingly fun to watch as the brave anchorwoman who battles the male-dominated newsroom in her climb up the career ladder.
