They aren't in the storylines both of which, (the story and the reading of the story) are engaging and interesting.
They aren't in the characters which are creative and fun.
They aren't in the performances, there isn't a bad one in it from Andre the Giant, to Billy Crystal.
It isn't in the action which is quite well done and in the great hollywood tradition of the 30's
It isn't in the comedy which couldn't have been timed better if an atomic clock was used.
It's not in the direction, this is Reiner's best movie.
The sets and the music all seem to complement the story so its not there.
Despite all of this, this movie has a number of flaws, and as soon as anybody can find them please let me know what they are because I'm not seeing them anywhere.
Should be required family watching.
