I have no idea why this is true, but it is.
The proper way to watch TBL is to watch it all the way through, be disappointed, wait 6-8 months until you've mostly forgot about it, then watch it again. Somehow that turns it into one of the best comedies in the history of cinema.
Seriously, there are VAST swathes of people who hated TBL on first viewing, and then love it unflinchingly from subsequent viewings.

So I see her body, her dress, and his legs.
I say, Redd, don't you know we're on camera?
Redd sticks his head up from between the hairdresser's legs and asks indignantly. . .
