Storyline

When the very moralistic college ethics instructor (Aykroyd) finds himself living next door to an accused German death camp commander (Lemmon), he takes it upon himself to rid the world of this man.

Quotes

Gail: 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." And I couldn't believe it! It looked like she had gone to an ice cream store to get her hair done! Three scoops!

Underrated fun
24 August 1999 | by (Rome, Italy and Copenhagen, DK) – See all my reviews

Maybe it's just because I like Dan Aykroyd: I have never seen a movie with him that I did not enjoy. I decided to put in a few lines of appreciation for this one, considering the bad reviews read here. It certainly is not the ultimate masterpiece of comedy but I found it thoroughly enjoyable, and despite the fact that I was very tired it kept watching it until 2am.
