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

The film was intended to be one of Universal's tent pole movies for Christmas 1985, but the film was pushed back to March of 1986. See more »
When Walter goes into the den to call the permit man, Montgomery Schrapp, you see a candle on the desk beside the phone. Walter uses a match to be able to see the number on the paper, and the paper catches fire. When Anna gets home and comes into the house, she turns on the light. When she finally finds Walter in the floor in the den, she turns on the light in that room, too. See more »

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
