I just can't get enough of this gem! Williams at his absolute funniest. This cue is exciting and fun.

Great track indeed.
I had it copied on my PC to play while working, along with several other tracks; I'll have to rebuild my collection, though, because my hard drive passed away last year.
Anyway, I found this track went very well with others from scores I got around the same time:
"Attack" (from Poledouris' Quigley Down Under)
and "Escape from the Dragon" (from Gregson-williams & Powell's Shrek)-- in that order, for a nice crescendo.

Yep, a fun theme. But the score as a whole is as cheesy as the film itself. What a turkey! God knows why Williams accepted this assignment inbetween "gigs" like E.T. and RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK and least he can put an Andy Kaufman film on his resume, for better or worse.

Well, he delivered what the film needed/deserved, didn't he?

I haven't seen it, I must admit.

Maybe he thought it was a fun project? Johnny has a good sense of humour.

This is really one of Williams' most inspired pieces! Listening to it right now... as the OP stated... I just can't get enough of it! smile
