The young architect Walter leaves his wife Linda to go to L.A. to draw a mansion for Harrison. On the highway a truck driver almost drives him off the road. Walter calls the truck-company to complain. The driver gets fired. When Walter arrives to the apartment-block where he has rented a flat he meets the choleric landlord William and the others living there. But now the problems starts. The next morning somebody has ruined his drawing and Harrison dislikes what Walter has drawn. But soon everything gets out of hand. Walter gets into more trouble - one morning he finds rats all over his apartment and the next day he finds his beautiful neighbor killed in his bed - and he starts to think that it is the fired truck driver who is out to get revenge.

Between minutes 16 and 18, when Dieter comes to visit Walter with a beer in his hand, the content of the bottle changes several times. When he puts the beer on the table, the upper part of the bottle is empty. When he picks it up, it's full again. He keeps it in his hand while the camera goes from one person to another, and at the next camera turn the bottle top is empty again. When he leaves the room, the bottle in his hand is full.

Well, let me say, I didn't know what to expect. I thought, well, Rob Lowe's in it so it can't be that bad. WRONG! Even his presence didn't save this loser. Sad to say the story line was inevitable and the conclusion not a surprise. I won't bore you with the details as I was bored with this film. Was this comedy? Camp? For real? Certainly it couldn't be taken seriously. Written by Patrik and Jasper Ersgard and directed by Jasper Ersgard, I found the film too dark in color and visibility, in some cases losing what was on the screen. You had to strain your eyes to watch this and strain your intelligence to believe it. As to the cast - Rob Lowe was terrible. Most of the film he's walking into one trap after another as blind as a bat. As an architect, he sure was missing some marbles. The scene when the slut comes after him was just downright horrible. How could he not know she was hot to trot on him. And how come he just didn't tell her to get lost? She was so obvious. He should have shut the door in her face. But then I guess we wouldn't have any more movie, would we? Rob, you can do better than this. James Belushi, another actor I respect, did bring some level of reality to his role and even made his character fun. I was rooting for him. Distinguished Dean Stockwell, whom I've liked since ANCHORS AWEIGH days as a child actor was wasted in this and gave his best. It's just great to watch him work, even in clinkers like this. Who can forget his better works like BOY WITH GREEN HAIR, GENTLEMEN'S AGREEMENT, GREEN YEARS, SONS AND LOVERS, COMPULSION and LONG DAYS JOURNEY INTO NIGHT. What a body of work that was. And to see him do this - it's embarrassing. Then there's Dana Wheeler Nicholson in a lack luster performance looking older than Rob as his wife. And let's not forget Alex Meneses in about the worst performance of the year as the slut. So obvious and not that attractive, she was laughable the way she climbed all over our hero. And poor Rob kept saying no as he fondled her and pleaded. Please! Special mention to my friend Richard Partlow as the detective and also one of the Foley Artists. Way to go, Rick! 3 stars for Belushi, Partlow and Stockwell.
