Storyline

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.

Goofs

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.

Let me tell you how bad this movie was...
9 January 1999 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

This is basically a movie about Rob Lowe being terrified of fictional rats that he believes crawl out of his toilet at night and urinate on his blueprints. I'm not kidding. Add to this an ex-East German with no brains whatsoever, an expensive prostitute, James Belushi (no less annoying than he was in About Last Night, also with Rob Lowe) and Al from Quantum Leap and you have the entire untalented cast. Okay, so one has to admit that they had _nothing_ with which to work, I'll agree to that. However, one also has to admit that if they read the script before agreeing to do the movie, then they're all _really_ desperate for money. Even Bull from Night Court shows up to sell Rob Lowe a gun. The only worthwhile thing about this movie occurs in the first five minutes when someone uses a two liter of Coca-Cola as a deadly weapon. I approved of that. The rest of the movie is boring, and utterly peril-less, not perilous.
