It's not Hughes' worst comedy effort by far, but it surely is by no means his best...

A tiny peek into what the entire Hughes filmography might have been like if Hughes was a dogmatic Marxist.

Hughes appears to love these characters, but he's serving a platter of rancid gags, losing interest as the story lurches from one roadside encounter to the next.

It's all assembly-line stuff.

If a film like this is to be funny at all, it had better work when the warring principals still hate each other, before the rich boy is shown to be a sweet kid and the whole story turns to mush.

from the director of "Crocodile Dundee"? surely not!

Warmed-up John Huges pap. Not even the hard-working Ed O'Neill can save the day.

I's not hard to understand how Hughes turns out so many screenplays. He probably just leaves the old ones in his computer so they're easier to rewrite.

Simply a tired, predictable retread of plot snippets and hollow characters from previous Hughes productions.

The acting is only a little more uninspired than the screenplay, which is directed without shame or flair by Peter Faiman of Crocodile Dundee.

Hughes, a man more prolific than Stephen King and less inspired than Aaron Spelling, has produced yet another forgettable project. This movie shouldn't even be allowed on planes.

Hughes has written, directed and/or produced so many of these films by now that perhaps we can even forgive him for beginning to repeat himself.
