Efrem Zimbalist Jr.
Offbeat comedy should have been more funny and less static.
Starring Robert ("Airplane!") Hays, UTILITIES gives new meaning to the term "finger". It's satiric and off-beat in its own right, but I'd flick the switch off on its terribly screwed up plot which gave me some service disruptions. While checking this one out, it appeared as a very original type of romantic comedy thanks to the perfect pairing and charactership of Robert Hays and Brooke Adams. In the end, one could only hope this being much more funny. A fine comedy movie with great potential, marred by statically over-hyped scripting and lack of solid ideas.
