Grover Clever is the only one of the three guys who didn't stage either of the kidnappings. However according to the script, police saw him dump the body double for Willard. Putting the blame on him, they put up wanted signs for Grover. Devito can be seen ripping them off telephone polls, which in fact, his character Ralph in Romancing The Stone does the same thing when in the police station in Mexico. See more »

I am sure other people who have posted their comments on this movie here have referenced the title in their comments, so I won't even try to make the same kind of joke. As you may have guessed by that last sentence, I didn't find this movie very appealing. For one thing, this is an extremely scummy-looking movie. Almost every shot look dark, dirty, and slimy - surprising, because it was filmed in clean British Columbia. But what was worse about the movie was how abrasive it was, harsh-feeling and tough to sit through. It is EXTREMELY loud, and almost every actor gives a strident and unappealing performance (the only actor who survives is Sherman Hemsley.) The movie is also badly written - MacDonald's girlfriend character is awkwardly introduced and stays missing for most of the movie, and characters keep failing to check things before making major actions and decisions. And it was strange that though this movie is taking place in the winter, in one scene in a car you can see bright sunshine and leaves on trees.
Oh, and the movie isn't funny at all.
