What is comedy coming to?

Apr 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Aggressively obnoxious FX comedy with Chase at his absolute hammiest.

Apr 6, 2005 | Rating: 1/5

Exacerbating matters is [Chevy] Chase's performance, which is incredibly obnoxious even by his standards.

Very bad film that's almost saved by Dabney Coleman. Don't bother unless you've got a soft spot for terrible 80's movies.

Another good comedy with Chevy Chase, very goofy, but charming, and I enjoyed it.

The ONLY reason to see this is to see Dabney Coleman as a egotistical author get his comeuppance by way of Chevy's Chase's newly-acquired telekinetic powers. Otherise, do NOT waste your time.

This one is a little off. The first half I liked as the main character was set up and given his powers. He has a little fun with it and then the whole movie takes a turn for the dramatic but in a very weak way as it tries to hold on to the comedy for dear life. Watch it if you like Chevy Chase but don't expect much from it.
