It is pretty uncanny how often that happens.

It seems like both of you, LeotheLateBloomer and Andrew NDB, got the wrong impression about what I was trying to say.

You really think that applies?. What exactly do you guys think I'm trying to "excuse" or "refute"? Specifically I was just remarking about the likes of this:

The point is not that "the premise is silly and therefore anything goes." The point was meant to be that some of the fundamental the logical fallacies are what makes the premise interesting and drew people to it.

The original movie demonstrates what I mean. It doesn't try too hard to justify the underlying gags, but it takes itself seriously enough to be meaningful, and stands up to its own internal logic. It might be the perfect balance.
