A frenetically unfunny and charmless movie.

What's fresh about Ramis and Doyle-Murray's brand of comedy is that they're not one-liner wordsmiths, they're social satirists. They find humor in the subversion of a stable social community.

The whole, crowded thing begins to resemble a low-brow Nashville.

There certainly is a lot of talent involved in Club Paradise... But most often, the level of humor is rather like that of those entertainments put on by summer campers for their own amusement.

There are enough funny skits in Club Paradise to make for a good hour of SCTV, where most of the cast is from, but too few to keep this Club Med satire afloat for 104 minutes.

The movie is painless, and everybody associated with it is good company, but considering the obvious effort and the expense that went into it, the result should have been much, much better.

Moranis and Levy get most of the laughs as a pair of geeky business partners desperately on the make for beach bunnies; Williams is saddled with a lot of soggy insult humor that doesn't really let him show his gifts.

The movie never really comes together, and I think the fault for that begins with Williams. When the star of a movie seems desperate enough to depend on one-liners, can the rest of the cast be blamed for losing confidence in the script?
