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

Richard Benjamin directs this comedy about a young couple and their misery trying to turn a dilapidated house into their dream home. Situational comedy makes up for the flimsy story line. Two young stars on their way up...Tom Hanks and Shelley Long work absolutely great together. Funny script with even funnier one-line rebuttals. Very good support from Joe Mantegna, Philip Bosco and Yakov Smirnoff.
