Four mental patients on a field trip in New York City must save their caring chaperon, who ends up being taken to a hospital in a coma after accidentally witnessing a murder, before the killers can find him and finish the job.
Twenty-four year old Angeleno Lionel Carpenter teaches a citizenship class at night school, most of his immigrant students who have no idea of what he is teaching in the language barrier. He has also had no luck with women largely due to the sheltered life he's led under the wings of his overbearing mother. His lack of encounters with women in the sexual sense is unlike his brash cousin, Sgt. Danny Bonhoff, who will do anything and take whatever opportunity to be up close and personal with the opposite sex. With Danny's help, Lionel is able to lose his virginity, although it isn't a totally satisfying experience.

By this time, he and one of his students, Russian gypsy Segoynia Savaka, have fallen in love and want to get married. They have to decide what to do about the baby. But the infamy and notoriety...Written by
And that one word pretty much describes this movie. True, it has it's funny moments, but I expected more from this film than what I saw. For example, the ending left many questions unanswered and what happened afterwords was left up to the imagination of those who've seen it. Plus, some of the jokes were tasteless and some were cliched. I believe they should have told more of this story than trying to cram it all in under 90 minutes, which is just what they did here. I also can't believe that this movie was described as one Mel Brooks would've directed, because I know, if left up to him, he would've done more to the script and the plot than Joan Rivers did, added more time to the movie, and explained the story better.
