Walter Fielding and Anna Crowley have to start looking for a new house- but there's not much they can afford! This soon changes when they meet a lonely old con artist who sells them a beautiful mansion at a ridiculously low price. Only there's a catch. The second they move into the house it falls apart, starting with the stairway collapsing to the bathtub falling through the floor to eventually the chimney falling into the house! Finally, they have to renovate the house before the frame collapses but the renovations also prove to be a disaster. Written by

During breaks in filming, star Tom Hanks liked to drive around in the vintage Lincoln Model L Series classic car which is featured in the movie. See more »
Initially, the front door swings into the house and the door knob is inside and the handle is outside. They are on the left (as viewed from outside the house). After the door and frame fall off the house it is propped up in the doorway, but the door now swings outward. The door could only do that if it were propped up backward, which it is not: the door handle is still outside and the knob is inside, and they are still on the left (when facing the house from outside).

Here lies Walter Fielding. He bought a house, and it killed him.

I have lost count of the amount of times I have watched this film. It's one of those films you put on when you need cheering up. So many scenes were funny to watch, love the one where Tom Hanks gets his fingers stepped on, because the stairs is "out"!!!!
You really feel for them, as everything they touch falls apart...and the saying: how long will this take to finish? TWO WEEKS, TWO WEEKS!! Yeh...right the job to mend/repair the house lasts months.
There are so many funny scenes...which I love, Tom Hanks is a legend, what a talent, funny or sad he's magic. Loved Shelley Long in this film, she's very good doing comedy.
Great movie xxx xx
