A mysterious stranger stirs things up with no money down real estate boom, but in his wake come two aliens with plans of their own for the place. 3 - "I'll Die Loving" - Finally, in the last tale, Theresa Sharpe is a woman with a serious problem.

Really lightweight material...
2 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All fans of both Martin Short and John Candy beware! Both segments, Short's and Candy's, are really weak, uninteresting, and strictly predictable, or utterly ridiculous. The third segment is mildly successful, but no better than a Saturday Night Live skit. Perhaps two giggles total in all three segments makes this not worth the time to view. Absolutely disregard the rave reviews on this site, or you will be destined to follow my mistake of putting far to much hope in the named actors. This is not even on a par with National Lampoon's most tiresome efforts. Save your time and save your money, and avoid, avoid, avoid. - MERK
