Definition of sight gag in English:
A visual joke.
- Its characters are calculatedly charming and the script slyly ends each of its tragic notes with a sight gag (including, unbelievably, its funeral reception scene).
- However, when you are scanning the background for a clever sight gag and not watching the main action, there's probably something wrong with the script.
- The production design is superb with bright colors everywhere - they go so far as to digitally repaint all the foliage in a countryside scene a garish purply pink - and the director has never met a sight gag he didn't love.
