As more and more unbelievable events unfold, our hero starts to question his own sanity... and those of his family. Written by Brad Jackson

Trivia John Belushi was originally cast in the role of Vic and Dan Aykroyd in the role of Earl. The two decided to switch roles just prior to filming the movie. As such, Belushi and Aykroyd starred in this movie acting against type, loud-mouthed Belushi played a quiet character whilst the meeker Aykroyd played an over-the-top character. See more »
