Woof! "Yodel-Lay-He-Who" Watches
15 July 2008 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Unpleasant final teaming of Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor. Mr. Wilder (as George) and Mr. Pryor (as Eddie) had to have already been contracted and paid for this film to see completion. Otherwise, there are no credible responses to the remarks, "You guys are awful!" and "This is NOT working!" The most jaw-dropping unfunny moments involve yodeling. Mercedes Ruehl (as Elaine aka Mimi) has an sexy and effective black underwear scene. Pryor has a good sequence, upon arriving at the Fielding mansion. Wilder impersonates Cary Grant and Desi Arnaz. If you don't count Lucy, Ethel, and Elvia Allman working in the candy factory (on the Fielding's TV), the early 1990s Hollywood location footage is the film's only real strength.
