The Imposters (1998)

2 unemployed actors stowaway on a cruise ship. Just accept that this is a zany farce and you will laugh. Stanley Tucci and Oliver Platt are like a crazed hot-dog and hamburger bouncing off the grill. There is such a deep understanding of comedy and a love of zanyness going on here. Many moments that will have you crying with laughter. The cast is given carte blanche to take their characters way over the top. But with the likes of Steve Buscemi, Alfred Molina, Lili Taylor, Tony Shalhoub, Bill Connolly et al, it's a pleasure. My fave is Campbell Scott as the smarmy Nazi Ship Officer.
