Ai-yai-yai! Carvey's a really blank lead -- the brief Bush impersonation is all that's funny.

Audience Reviews for Opportunity Knocks

Hilarious! Dana Carvey is great!

Leo L

Super Reviewer

Dana Carvey is mildly amusing as a con man. I had hoped for better, but it's reasonably entertaining. (First and only viewing - 11/5/2014)

The movie is about a con man, who ends up hitting it big. But when things start to go a little too far, Dana Carvy's realized something that he never realized before... He's in love.
