Walrus-like warden, Sven "Swede" Sorenson, a cross between Bluto and Wimpy, runs the prison, murders convicts who escape, and has the FBI on his trail in the form of agent Karen Polarski, the daughter of the town's corrupt judge. Swede's twins tell their father they're pregnant (they aren't), so he pushes their dim boyfriends, Bud and Larry, into shotgun marriages. He also turns his sons-in-law into slave labor, so Bud hatches an escape plan: to rob a train carrying old bills to the mint for burning. Larry's his reluctant accomplice. When Bud is captured and railroaded into Swede's jail, his death looks certain, until he hatches yet another plan that requires Larry's help. Written by
One of three films in which Charlie Sheen was billed under the name Charles. This was in keeping to his turning a new leaf in his personal life after his battles with alcohol and drug addiction along with the infamous Heidi Fleiss scandal. He would later return to more familiar name after replacing 'Michael J. Fox' on the hit series, Spin City (1996) in 2000. See more »
If you are a Brando fan, you'll love this film. He appears to be improvising throughout the film and takes everyone along for an hilarious ride. Sheen and Church deftly underplay their roles of the town dunces (although an argument could be made that the entire town is full of dunces). Good performances all around but the real treat is Brando. He fills the screen, literally and figuratively, with his presence.
