Walter Fielding and Anna Crowley have to start looking for a new house- but there's not much they can afford! This soon changes when they meet a lonely old con artist who sells them a beautiful mansion at a ridiculously low price. Only there's a catch. The second they move into the house it falls apart, starting with the stairway collapsing to the bathtub falling through the floor to eventually the chimney falling into the house! Finally, they have to renovate the house before the frame collapses but the renovations also prove to be a disaster.Written by

In the scene where the "Cheap Girls" talk with Walter on wanting to change their name to "Meryl Streep", it looks like he says "bulls**t" instead of "Meryl Streep". See more »

Several scenes are different or added to the television version. The TV version offers an extended scene when Walter tries to carve his name and Anna's on the tree. More than one tree falls, explaining why Walter comes in the house and says they have weak trees, instead of just one tree. In between the shots of the realtor stamping the house sheet with a "SOLD", and Walter and Anna moving in, there is a scene with Walter and Anna in the house discussing how drunk they were on a trip to Puerto Rico.

You will laugh so hard!!! The scene in which the bathtub falls through the rotting floor and shatters is the funniest scene in a ton of funny scenes!!! I remember this in the theatre when I was 15 and I almost peed my pants during that tub scene!!!
Tom Hanks is the greatest!!!
