And I walked over to her and I'm trying to relax her and calm her down and I said, "I like your hair!" and she has this Southern accent and she says, "My hair - makes me closer to Jesus."

Picked this up at Hollywood Video for four obvious reasons: Aykroyd, Tomlin, Lemmon, and the always lovely Bonnie Hunt. But holy cow, what a waste of talent. Lemmon is given nothing to do, Hunt's role is superfluous, and Tomlin's role isn't funny. Aykroyd is in virtually every scene, but since the writers didn't bother coming up with anything funny for him, he becomes tiresome after about fifteen minutes.
I have no idea why this movie was made.
