Goofs

When the husband is getting a haircut early in the film, you can hear him talking about how is hair is very important, but at the bottom right of the screen, his lips are not moving. There is a change in the audio tone that is subtle, but noticeable as the dialogue was most likely subbed in after filming. See more »

Surprisingly very funny
19 November 2005 | by (Middle of nowhere, South Dakota) – See all my reviews

The 80's saw multiple films just like this one in the 80's. The first one that comes to mind is One Crazy Summer with John Cusack. But, who would have ever dreamed that a man from one of these kind of films would be nominated for an Oscar. About as surprising as one of the original Ghostbustes conquering that same foot. Johnny Depp is amazingly fun in this film. His charisma and stupidity makes this film shine. Rob Morrow is good as well but, he is just simply the lead dopey character. Depp is excellent as the crazy sidekick (one of my personal favorite types of performances in any film).

For it's time, this was the perfect example of what so many other films were trying for. To sum it up, the film is on the same level as Porky's. And I mean that as a compliment.
