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

I remember seeing this film when it first came out on video to buy and I have never laughed so much in my life!
There are many outstanding physical comedy scenes but the staircase, kitchen and bathtub ones with Tom Hanks are truly hilarious and show him to be a great comic actor and had me crying with laughter and almost unable to breathe!
All these years later I now have the film on DVD (due to wearing out my video version) and have seen it so many times but still find it absolutely hysterical.
A terrific one and a half hours entertainment.... A MUST SEE!!
