Vernon Praiseworthy is a clumsy but lovable dope who stands to inherit his uncle's fortune. The condition is that he travel the rails as a penniless hobo just as his uncle did in the dark days of the depression. That seems simple enough until he gets involved in a dog-napping plot. Written by
First let me say, I think Tim Conway is one of the funniest people on the planet. His work on The Carol Burnett Show and his recent work in Vegas with Harvey Korman result in genuine side-splitting, tear inducing, belly laugh's. That talent, however, is wasted in this effort. There is a fine line between a lovable goof and an annoying idiot, unfortunately, this movie crosses the line towards the latter in the most extreme manner.
The character that Tim Conway portrays begs the question, "How are you still alive?!" This is truly one of the worst, idiotic and annoying characters I have seen in a movie perhaps ever! If you are a fan of Tim Conway's work, then please see him live with Harvey Korman or check out classic Carol Burnett skits, but do not see this movie -- it is almost bad enough to make one turn on him...
