Critic Reviews for Modern Problems
Aggressively obnoxious FX comedy with Chase at his absolute hammiest.
Exacerbating matters is [Chevy] Chase's performance, which is incredibly obnoxious even by his standards.
Audience Reviews for Modern Problems
Another good comedy with Chevy Chase, very goofy, but charming, and I enjoyed it.
The ONLY reason to see this is to see Dabney Coleman as a egotistical author get his comeuppance by way of Chevy's Chase's newly-acquired telekinetic powers. Otherise, do NOT waste your time.
This one is a little off. The first half I liked as the main character was set up and given his powers. He has a little fun with it and then the whole movie takes a turn for the dramatic but in a very weak way as it tries to hold on to the comedy for dear life.
Watch it if you like Chevy Chase but don't expect much from it.
