    Thank God for Oliver Platt. Without his reliable scene-stealing, this gussied-up sex comedy might have been truly insufferable. As a matter of fact, most of the cast of Casanova is so good you find yourself wishing they could all be transported to a better film.

    Watching this slapstick slacker comedy is the cinematic equivalent of a cover band: an Adam Sandler movie without Sandler himself. A product of his Happy Madison productions, it stars a collection of the Waterboy’s best buddies and hangers-on, who proudly carry on the sophomoric humor of their master.

    Kitten, or Saint Kitten as he sometimes asks to be called, is the son of a parish priest (Liam Neeson) and his cleaning woman. His parents abandoned him as an infant, leaving him in the care of a harsh foster mother and sister. His preference for women’s attire, his smart mouth and his mischievous nature get him into trouble at home and at his parochial school. Plus, the violence and political turmoil percolating in his hometown near the Ireland-Northern Ireland border proves too "serious" for Kitten to handle. So, he says goodbye to his faithful group of childhood buddies and heads off to 1970s London to seek out his mother.
