Mr. Aykroyd and Mr. Hanks play well together, but the funniest performance in the film is that of Dabney Coleman, as the smut king (who lisps).

The script is a gold mine of one-liners.

Yes, it is lowbrow and sophomoric. What you'd call dumb-de-dumb-dumb fun.

It simply doesn't come off, and the viewer will be left with an empty feeling, a vacuous notion that somehow the laugh scenes slipped by unnoticed. They were never really there.

Aykroyd's script has more than its share of clever, witty ideas, but the film still feels the need to descend way too often to Police Academy-style heroes-dress-up-like-idiots sequences.

Annoying comedy.

Entertaining enough, but a pity they didn't draft in more of the Eisenhower context.
