The picture's main movie poster featured palm trees and a "Beverly Hills" sign which was typical of a number of Hollywood comedies set there during the 1980s after the box-office success of Beverly Hills Cop (1984). Other such 80s movies with posters with such signs and/or palm trees included Troop Beverly Hills (1989) and Down and Out in Beverly Hills (1986). See more »

As a fan of Dan Aykroyd, I watched this film when it was recently shown in the middle of night on TV. I wasn't expecting much, so it came as a big surprise that I loved it so much.
This is the type of film that Dan Aykroyd seems to love to make. A chance for him to 'ham it up' and not take things too seriously. If you loved him in The Blues Brothers or Ghostbusters you'll know what I mean, and you'd be wise to check out The Couch Trip.
Avid fans of Aykroyd will also have fun spotting all the tiny links to his other films in the script!
I can't describe this film without spoiling it for you, so all I can do is tell you to check it out. I can't praise this film highly enough, and it must surely be time for a DVD release!!
