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

After the characters have hauled two two-gallon buckets of water up the ladder and dumped them into the bathtub, Walter goes back downstairs and, after the kitchen fire, brings up the third recently heated on the stove. That is also dumped into the tub, causing the tub to crash through the floor and land below. As the camera angle picks up the tub falling through the floor and the ensuing crash and breakage, there is no water spray from the broken tub. See more »
There is a house I want to buy.
Let's just cut to the chase, Okay? What do you want?
I want you to loan me $200,000 in cash.
You shout at me?
I shout at you! I need that money and you are going to loan it to me.
No, I won't!
Yes, you will!
No, No, No!

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.

I would give this 2 thumbs up and 10/10 because it was a Comedy and Romance. I loved it.
I had Just seen it less than 2 weeks ago on TNT. It was at 1:00 in the morning, I didn't get to see the first 30 minutes but I began to watch it because of Shelley Long. I loved it so much that I stayed up the whole night trying to see when it would be on again. well no luck. I talked to my mom about and she had it taped because she loved it to. We couldn't find it so she went out and bought. It has only been almost 2 weeks and I have seen it about 2.5 billon time. Even though it was made the same year I was born (13 years ago) I love it so much. The end is my fave part. The Argument is so sad then they get back together with a big kiss and get married. If you haven't seen the Movie go out and rent it is soooooooo good. It's about a girl (Shelley Long) and a guy (Tom Hank) and the ex husband. They buy a house and it comes crashing down on them. It is soooooooooo good.
