Winslow needs money now to pay off gambling debts. If only his rich uncle Albert would die. But his orderlies are very good.

This is one of those stupid movies with great soundtracks. The plot is weak... the characterisation is all but non-existent (this is what happens when one tries to teach rappers to act).
The soundtrack is about the only thing that makes this film worthwhile; check out the great Bananarama number "I Heard a Rumour". The Fat Boys are fine when they are in their element -- rapping. They contribute two passable numbers -- "Baby, You're a Rich Man" and "Wipeout".
Thank goodness Anne Dudley has moved on to better things ... like winning an Oscar for scoring "The Full Monty".
