Trivia

All five of this film's lead actors (Louie Anderson, Richard Lewis, Richard Belzer, Franklyn Ajaye, and Tim Thomerson) have backgrounds in stand-up comedy, and this film was largely an attempt to capitalize on the popularity of televised stand-up in the mid-to-late 1980s and the relative fame of these comics.

I definitely recommend it! My husband & I both like it a lot. We've mentioned it to friends and most have never heard of it; those who knew it remembered it for its cast. The characters are thoroughly lovable, funny, and are hilariously portrayed by an exceptional cast. The plot itself lends a lot of opportunity for comedy & chaos and, I think, the writers developed it well. We laughed a lot and we always look for it in video stores, although it's very hard to find. We'll just have to buy a copy!
