Dave's rating of the film Sullivan’s Travels

The scene where the prisoners are brought in to watch a movie at the local church sums up everything you need to know about this movie. Yes, it is hilarious and displays Sturges' writing at its best. But the message to take away from it almost makes you feel good for finding such pleasure in something as simple as the two-hour diversion that a movie ultimately is at its most basic level.
