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.

Pretty funny!!
25 January 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie and thought it was pretty darn funny. The plot is original and the acting is true. Richard Belzer, Richard Louis and John Goodman were great. And Louie Anderson did a great job as the cute-as-a-button momma's boy!! 3 stars!!
