A Terrific Side-splitting Comedy
2 June 1999 | by PatWellsSee all my reviews

Three guys in therapy, each with a different mental disorder, have their car ruined when they drive into a pot"HOLE". They feel the city should buy them a new car, since it was the city's pothole that ruined their car, and they won't take no for an answer. They devise a plan to steal a mortar cannon, get it aboard a boat and threaten to blow a hole in the mayor's house if he doesn't buy them a new car. Klein is absolutely fabulous as a schizophrenic with personalities ranging from an elegant actress to a mob boss named Rocky.
