Storyline

Emory works in advertising, and is beginning to crack-up. His latest idea is honesty, e.g. "Volvos, Yes they are boxy, but they're safe". This doesn't go down too well with the boss, so Emory is sent to a psychiatric hospital to 'recover'. Meanwhile, back at the office, Emory's work is accidentally sent to the printers. His ads are a huge success. But now Emory has fallen for Kathy (another patient) and so doesn't want to leave. Written by Rob Hartill

Trivia

Promotional artwork for this film on DVD, home video and movie posters has shown actor Dudley Moore wearing a strait-jacket. But in a contra-position to the film's main theme of "truth in advertising", Moore is never actually seen in the movie wearing a strait-jacket. See more »

Quotes

Emory Leeson: Take me away from here; I'll buy you dinner, I'll buy you a restaurant!
Stephen: I have to go.
Emory Leeson: You did quite a bit of silent farting in the car, so you're not perfect either.

Hilarious
18 December 2004 | by (Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia) – See all my reviews

This is in my opinion Dudley Moore's funniest movie. However, the cast of characters in this movie also aid in helping with the laugh's. Of course the advertisement's (Designed to be brutally honest about products/services) that are created by these members of a mental hospital are the highlight of this film. Even though the advertisement's probably would not work in real life and would probably cause consumer outrage in this politically correct society we live in today,(e.g., Visit New York it's not as filthy as you think), it makes for some good laughs. I highly recommend this movie for those that enjoy a good comedy.
