Movie Info

Air traffic controller Max (Chevy Chase) has a life so stressful that he feels himself constantly on the verge of a breakdown. When his girlfriend, Darcy (Patti D'Arbanville), leaves him, the feeling worsens until a freak accident endows him with telekinetic powers. He immediately puts them to work in order to win Darcy back, sabotaging every new relationship she attempts. The plan begins to succeed until the two spend the weekend at a friend's beach house, and Max grows mad with power.

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

    This movie was funny when I was little & still is today

    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.
