Kaplan would never hear "WELCOME BACK" (in Hollywood) again!!!
27 September 2004 | by (sparrow, arizona) – See all my reviews

this is an awful movie. one of the worst, unfunniest comedies i have ever, ever seen. concerns three friends, all mental patients. one has an extremely bad memory; one has a ghost for a mother that only he can see; one has a split personality, neither of them funny. Gabe Kaplan, famous for the (now quite dated and unfunny) hit series WELCOME BACK KOTTER, is the PET ROCK of comedy. he is a likable enough guy but tries too hard to seem as if he's not trying at all, and thinks he's so darn cute. Gabe plays the guy with the bad memory; as a viewer, you'll wish you had his same ailment when the credits role. Alex Karras has the ghost mother. he is likable enough too, but unfunny; he has nothing to go on here. and last, AND least, the unfunniest comedic actor of all time (although I guess he's an okay standup, but his acting is horrid) Robert Klein, who is so uninteresting you almost want to turn off your television when he appears. Robert, unlike the other two, Isn't likable. he's got a split personality, one a stuffy woman, the other a tough gangster. awful meets awful. and Susan Clark, Karras' real life wife, plays Gabe Kaplan's wife, and is as boring as the rest of the cast. this movie is plain bad; it's directed by Bob Newhart's dentist friend Peter Bonerz who has a lame cameo for no apparent reason at all; one wonders how this film was ever made in the first place.
