Directed by Elaine May | 1987

With Warren Beatty, Dustin Hoffman, Isabelle Adjani

Once synonymous with “box office flop,” national treasure Elaine May’s unjustly maligned road movie comedy has been on a steady path to critical respectability since its disastrous premiere. Viewed today, this satire about a pair of talentless lounge singers (Warren Beatty and Dustin Hoffman, playing against type) swept up in Middle Eastern political intrigue can be appreciated as an endearingly goofy, often hilarious lark that should never have cut short May’s brilliant career.

Soft-shoeing across giant, toy store piano keys, Tom Hanks is a pure delight in this classic body-swap comedy from the great Penny Marshall.
