Ugh. Pretty bad. Even for an 80's formula tasteless "comedy". The "jokes" are ridiculously sophomoric, and almost always sexual. (Maybe if you're in Jr. High/Middle School, you might find it entertaining.)
There's a reason this film was totally forgetful. Every bad Follywood syndrome & pitfall is in this one, along with being completely formulaic. Hint: Just having people running all the time, does not automatically make a funny "zany" comedy.
However, it is NOT racist at all. Not even in the slightest.
P.S. Except for the main bad guy liking a certain kind of tobacco, I never saw anyone else in the movie ever smoke, except that guy, ONCE, after a "love" scene. "Pro smoking"?????????????

Pretty entertaining and funny, but also ridiculously unbelievable and little dated/racist and very pro-smoking.
