The two instantly start hating each other.

Things get more complicated when the two are hypnotized to steal jewels without remembering it afterwards. It was a really funny movie that made me laugh without doing anything silly, had brilliant dialogue, an endless amount of wise cracks and a soundtrack mostly consisting of jazz. Great stuff and really reminded me of some of the old movies.
Yeah, I saw that movie too, and I agree with you - it was a great movie . I also recently saw 'Dude, Where's My Car?' on DVD and 'The Man With Two Brains' on TV, both of which I though were pretty funny. I also (not quite so recently) went to the cinema to see King Kong, which was a really breath-taking, exciting movie... although a bit too long (around 3 hours!).
