One man's quiet suburban life takes a sickening lurch for the worse when a young couple move into the deserted house next door. From the word go it is obvious these are not the quiet professional types who *should* be living in such a nice street. As more and more unbelievable events unfold, our hero starts to question his own sanity... and those of his family. Written by
The original score was written by Blues Brothers Band founding member Tom Scott. It was very serious and dramatic, and tested badly with audiences. So, John G. Avildsen asked his frequent collaborator Bill Conti to write a score emphasizing the comedic aspects of the film. Both scores were released in 2007 by the Varese Sarabande CD club in a limited edition. See more »

Old Earl here was worried about Baby.
Oh, he's no trouble at all. He's a perfect gentleman. You can leave him with me anytime you want.
Don't worry, I will.
They spoil him awfully.
Well, I want him to have every advantage I was denied as a young dog.

not a mainstream comedy by any means This movie fails on nearly every front but has 2 things going for it, the cast, its an almost forgotten piece of Ackroyd and Belushi in their prime, secondly its off kilter pace and atmosphere, these alone are enough to give it a place in my collection.
If your not into either of the above then give this a wide berth as its sure to disappoint. apparently the film had a difficult gestation and this seems plausible as its very inconsistent and aimless at times, shifting gear unexpectedly. an eclectic and patchy dark comedy it should suit die hard fans who want to see more of A&B
