"Required for all. Note the perfection of script, direction, production, acting, casting, comedic timing, sets, soundtrack, and tone. This is your teacher's favorite film. If you don't watch this film and pay attention to it you get an automatic fail. View this as an insider and an outsider. Will be shown to class during thanksgiving."
