Storyline

A financier [Chevy Chase] meets a spurned lover [Demi Moore] and agrees to take her to a business meeting. On the way there, they run a stop sign in a tiny town in the middle of nowhere. They are arrested and taken to the local court. But all is not as it seems: the courthouse and the "prison" are a maze of zany booby- traps and deadly contraptions. The antics of the captured couple as they try to escape from the mad judge and his bizarre family make up the rest of this unusual film. Written by Goth <brooks@odie.ee.wits.ac.za>

Truly the worst movie ever produced
5 October 2000 | by (Orlando, FL) – See all my reviews

I believe the venerable movie critic Leslie Haliwell sums this film up best: "...exceeding dismal comedy in which a group of self-indulgent comedians, having been given a great deal of rope, proceed to hang themselves; it is not a pretty sight." Variety says, "Astonishingly poor effort...the longest 94 minutes on record." Ken Newman, of 'Sight and Sound,' claims this was an "absolute failure as a comedy..." This is truly and without exception or doubt the worst film ever produced. I have encouraged many to see this film if for no other reason than to know just how awful a film can truly be. Ironically, the film was written by an arguably intelligent team (the brothers Aykroyd) and starred four usually reliable actors: Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, Demi Moore, and the late John Candy. How then could a production go so disastrously wrong? You really have to see it to believe how bad it is. The ONLY redeeming quality (the ONLY reason I could even give it one point other than the fact that IMDB won't let you give it a zero) was the entertaining scene where Digital Underground performed in the courthouse. That's it. That's the only possibility of redemption in the worst film ever realized in American cinema. ANYONE who cares to argue this critique is MORE than welcome to email me at ... though I feel certain that I won't be hearing from anyone.
