This was one that I have seen bits of pieces of over the years but still wanted to see it in it's unedited glory. I finally watched it and it is one of Ron Howard's better efforts. Sometimes it feels like a TV sitcom, which isn't too bad considering Winkler is a TV icon. I like Henry Winkler and think he did a pretty decent job here but it is Michael Keaton who steals the show as the energetic schemer working with Winkler at the morgue. This reeks of the early 80's and that can be a mixed bag as it comes off as cheese but is still a pretty good product of the time.
Henry WInkler, Shelley Long, and Michael Keaton star in this early Ron Howard film. It is actually a really solid comedy. Keaton is hilarious, and WInkler is really good in a role that is completely different from the Fonz. Definitely recommended.
director ron howard and the starring henry "fonz" winkler who did working together in "happy days" and the into the film with of the 1980's comedy movie. michael keaton is the film debut as billy blazejowski (he the wildest character). shelley long (of tv series "cheers") look very stunning that she did making breakfast scene with chuck (henry winkler). so watch out for with kevin costner (that he is the early role at the morgue party scene) and shannen doherty (of tv series "beverly hills 90210" and her role that she was in girl scout who attack at chuck in elevator scene in "night shift").
Somewhat funny. It ignited Michael Keaton's career, but did nothing for Winkler, who had problems adjusting to life after Happy Days. All-in-all, a decent comedy that Comedy Central shows over and over again.
A very funny film, Michael Keaton and Henry Winkler star as 2 morticians who meet a prostitute and get the idea of becoming pimps. Their life gets good, but things get crazier. Shelley Long is awesome in thsi film also.
