When Burns jumps from the building, his stunt man is easy to detect despite the angle in which the scene was shot. See more »
[on "Baird's" radio program while taking a listener]
Well, he said "balls", "asshole", "son-of-a bitch" and finally "fuck". We're on okay on "balls", we're riffy on "son-of-a-bitch" and even "asshole" is somewhat anatomically potentially forgiveable. But there's no getting around "fuck".

A lot of people don't think Dan Aykroyd is funny. This movie proves otherwise. Aykroyd is brilliant delivering his one-liners in this comedy. The only major problem with this is that it wastes far too much time near the end jumping back and forth from Aykroyd's character and the doctor who is pursuing him to prove he's a fraud. The doctor goes nuts like doctor Leo Marvin (Richard Dreyfuss) in "What About Bob?". The scenes where the doctor is desperately trying to get back to Los Angeles are silly, unbelievable, and unfunny. Other that this aspect the movie really is funny, especially the first half.
