A little on the dull side, but good in that you can see the Milos Forman style in its nascent form — the observational humor, the buffoon authority figures, the deadpan-absurdist set pieces. This film is almost like a warm up for his second, and far superior, “Loves Of A Blonde.” The DVD transfer from Facets really stinks — many of the subtitles are on a delay and it makes for many confusing moments.
