Trivia

John Larroquette was approached for this film while working on the sixth season of Night Court. But the show's executive producer would not allow Larroquette the time off to make the film. Because of delays in the film, Larroquette was approached again during the seventh season of Night Court. This time, the show's producer and the film's producers worked out a schedule that would allow Larroquette to work on both projects simultaneously. Mondays to Thursdays, Larroquette would rehearse for the series during the day and work on the film all night. On Friday nights, the series would tape their episodes. As soon taping finished, he would go to the film's set and work all weekend. See more »

This is one cool comedy!
19 January 2000 | by (Brooklyn, NY. (Where I'm from originally.)) – See all my reviews

This was one hilarious movie to begin the 90's. I've always been a fan of John Larroquette since he appeared on Night Court. This movie rocks! And I was just a pre-teen kid when I saw this in the theater, and it's still funny to me now that I'm an adult!

It's about John Larroquette and Kirsty Alley playing these yuppies who have some relatives visiting, and then before we know it, practically the whole neighborhood becomes their houseguests! Also the news interviews were amusing, too!

So, if you're in a mood for a screwball comedy from this past decade, you're in for a ride with this one! I highly recommend it!
