Jealous, harried air traffic controller Max Fiedler, recently dumped by his girlfriend, comes into contact with nuclear waste and is granted the power of telekinesis, which he uses not only to win her back, but to gain a little revenge.
Set in 1954, a group of Florida high schoolers seek out to help a buddy lose his virginity, which leads them to seek revenge on a sleazy nightclub owner and his redneck sheriff brother for harassing them.
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
This is a terrible movie. The worst part is it was advertised on TV as a comedy. A short 10 second snippet of Dan Akroyd, John Belushi and Kathy Moriarty sitting around talking, giving impression that you need to go see the movie to hear the hilarious punch line that they didn't show in the advertisement. So people go to the movie only to find out there was no hilarious punch line at the end of that scene, or any other scene. No hilarious lines, not a belly laugh, not a laugh, not a grin, not a smile not even a hint of a smile, just two hours of boredom, wondering if you should leave now or wait on the promised laugh, which never comes. In one scene John Belushi gives Dan Akroyd $50 to go buy a carry-out supper. Dan goes next door and makes spaghetti. As we walked out of the movie the man behind said: "I feel like I just paid Dan Akroyd $50 for a plate of bad spaghetti."
