an artist named Jasper Dakimmel, all in all a decent enough premise that doesn't pay off with many laughs
There are running gags throughout that will definitely make you chuckle- such as needing to wait for the cable guy because you have "Bars on 2 & 7" or "Oh no, you're going to give me a brain tumor!" (in regards to how melodramatic soaps are). Blake Hedison's upped dosage of medication and results really are enough to make your cringe. And my personal favorite- John Candy's reaction to Robert Wagner- priceless!
The writing is clever (again, keeping inside jokes), and the stabs at the soap industry are ones any one has made a thousand times but it is done with such earnest exaggeration that it does not get stale.
This is more of a causal comedy than a gut buster but I do not think it should not be missed by any John Candy fan.
