Storyline

A nebbish of a morgue attendant gets shunted back to the night shift where he is shackled with an obnoxious neophyte partner who dreams of the "one great idea" for success. His life takes a bizarre turn when a prostitute neighbour complains about the loss of her pimp. His partner, upon hearing the situation, suggests that they fill that opening themselves using the morgue at night as their brothel. Against his better judgement, he gets talked into the idea, only to find that it's more than his boss that has objections to this bit of entrepreneurship.

Goofs

When Belinda comes to Chuck's to make breakfast she asks what type of eggs he wants and he says scrambled. She then starts making fried eggs, but when the eggs are done she magically pours scrambled eggs out of the same pan. It is true that she does start off with the eggs as sunny side up style, but as Chuck is talking to his Fiance you can see the shadow of Belinda using the spatula to mix up the eggs and then pours the scrambled eggs into her and Chuck's plate. Even the eggs don't look that well scrambled. See more »

Quotes

Bill: We're all adults here - we can talk about this openly...
[writing on chalkboard]
Bill: PROSTITUTION! But what does that mean really? Sometimes it helps to understand a word if you break it down, so let's do that now shall we? Pros... it doesn't mean anything, you can forget about that... Tit, I think we all know what that means, Tu, two tit and TION of course, from the Latin to shun... to say uh-uh no thank you anyway I don't want it, to push away... it doesn't even belong in this word really.

Blaze-O-Rama!
6 May 2003 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

This movie was actually pretty believable, and the actors had such chemistry, it was great! Henry Winkler and Michael Keaton were great together and seem to be like the most likeable people you would meet. I wish they would have made Night Shift 2, or Keaton and Winkler just should have worked together again. 7.6 out of 10.
