Predictable, funny, quote-worthy movie, starring the late, great John Candy. The cast works well together as a goofy vehicle for Candy. As long as you don't take it too seriously (and who would?), you should be entertained. Those who pan the movie have to realize that it wasn't meant to be an Academy Award-winning film--just silly, light-hearted fun.

Thank you Mr. Candy, we barely knew you. Just who is Harry Crumb? A hoot for Candy fans, find out as a detective agency who bears his family name barely remembers its founders. Harry is the last of a long line of family heirs to the business, but is only remotely thought of by the head of this dubious enterprise. Barely thought of until the head wants to blackmail for 10 million ransom the daughter of the owner.

This film is tedious at times and mostly slapstick. But John Candy saves this film from utter mediocrity and pure stupid. Oh yes, don't have the kids watch this one with you, it has too much graphic visual adult humour.

Candy as a bumbling detective who helps a heiress in this silly comedy entry.

While John Candy is in one of his best roles, Who's Harry Crumb? is dated and fails emotionally.

This is a funny movie. Not one of John Candy's better films, but certainly not his worst.

Watched this for the first time a few months ago. It had some funny parts, but I didn't find John Candy as funny in this as some of his other movies.

When Harry (John Candy), the last of the great sleuthing Crumbs - and the last person in the firm to ever get an assignment - finally gets a shot at a frontpage kidnapping, it's only because his beady-eyed boss Eliot Drasen (Jeffery Jones) doesn't want the case solved. At stake is the gorgeous daughter of multi-millionare P.J. Downing (Barry Corbin), a $10 million ransom, and Eliots's hot-to-trot mistress (Annie Potts). Attired in a bizarre array of goofball disguises, from a Hungarian hairdresser to a hefty housewife - Harry is bound, gagged and determined to crack the case and prove that when it comes to crime, he's one Crumb that won't be swept under the carpet.

also stars Tim Thomerson, Shawnee Smith, Valri Bromfield, Doug Steckler and Renee Coleman.

directed by Paul Flaherty.
