I disregard the book, the movie is it’s own entity. To be a great movie doesn’t require perfect segues and outstanding acting though I have tauted that Herren should get an Oscar solely for the look on his face after the rape scene.
A great movie is great for invoking pleasant thought and responses.
I totally got this film on first viewing, laughing until tears pooled up in my eyes. The vintage film clips were fabulous, and had to be the model used by HBO’s hit series “Dream On” from the ’80’s.

My friends have adopted many lines from the film and hearing them always spawns laughter from those of us in the know.
