It's so lacking in wit, it makes even Abbott and Costello seem so much smarter.
An outlandishly fluffy whodunnit farce that generates its inspired nuttiness from the likable John Candy.
Love the late, great John Candy? Me too. Let's honor the funnyman by never seeing this movie again.
O slogan do filme é 'Nervos de aço. Corpo de ferro. Cérebro de pedra.'. A quem os produtores estavam se referindo? A Crumb ou a nós, pobres espectadores?
Bit of 80's stupidity. Sometimes that's just the thing...
The ever lovable John Candy manages to make you smile throughout this film despite it being somewhat childish with some pretty lame predictable visual gags. A simple plot involving an inept private eye trying to uncover a kidnapping and inadvertently succeeding through his own blundering, a slight copy of 'The Pink Panther' methinks but its a fun little farce giving Candy the oppertunity to try many character disguises....think 'Fletch'.
Its all very silly yet likeable as Candy uses his girth in all manner of ways to make you chuckle, classic 80's actor Jeff Jones is the perfect dastardly foil to Candy with Tim Thomerson in an unusual role as a slightly useless badguy henchman.
Overall you are lead through a nice array of amusing sequences which are fun, I won't lie and say they are great and hilarious simply because Candy is the star ergo they must be great as that isn't the case, if this film had been made today it would probably be long forgotten very very quickly but that also does testify to the skill and charm of Candy.
Not his best film but its up there in the top five.
Who's Harry Crumb? Well, it's a fun guy, but you really don't want see him. You know what i meen?
One of Candy's funniest performances for me. Plus, the rest of the cast is perfect. The story is a bit predictable, but it's highly enjoyable, and I recommend this movie.
