Storyline

Eddie and Lou are a couple of two-bit con men on the lam from a loan shark. They hide out in someone's house and they hear on the answering machine that (A) the owner of the house is out of the country for a month or two and (B) the housesitter supposed to watch the house for the absent owner won't be able to watch the house due to a new job in another part of the country. This provides for a pretty nifty arrangement for Eddie and Lou...until the relatives of the house owner drop by to visit. Eddie quickly adopts the guise of the person supposedly housesitting for the owner, and the shenanigans start from there. Written by Afterburner <aburner@erols.com>

Very funny movie if that is what you are looking for!!!!
25 July 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is great, it is at very easy reach on my DVD shelf as I always find myself scanning chapters for the funny parts. It is one of those weekend afternoon flicks or funny late night movie when you just want a good chuckle. This was never meant to be an Oscar winning movie so don't expect that from this flick simply sit and enjoy.

If you like other Dana Carvey's movies this is a must see for you. Dana does a very good job in this movie, I would say much better then The Master of Disguise. You would enjoy all of the skits and impressions that Dana is able to pull off.

Great movie if you don't want to buy it thats fine but this is a something you must at least rent once.
