This isn't a bad film. It's actually quite funny at times and Falk and Arkin make a good comedic duo, though the In-Laws was better. What made this film somewhat unenjoyable for me was the knowledge that it is the last thing John Cassavetes directed before his death and it falls miles short of anything else he made in his lifetime. It's not even comparable to films like Faces, Love Streams, and The Killing of a Chinese Bookie. This feels like maybe he just wanted to take a little break, have some fun, make some money...which is entirely understandable but I don't think he ever intended for this to be his last film. Frankly, this flick could've been directed by anybody: it has the feel of a slightly above average but still fairly generic eighties comedy. I wish he'd left this script to another director and just ended his career on Love Streams.
