This movie has and offbeat collection of three bizarre stories that are definitely REALLY WEIRD TALES! All of the following tales are told by Joe Flahery in the movie. 1 - "All's Well That Ends Strange" - A third-rate lounge performer thinks he's made the big time through his friendship with a girlie magazine publisher. Then he discovers what's really behind those buxom bodies and sexy smiles! (ROBOT WOMEN) 2 - "Cursed With Charisma" - This tale concerns the failing town of Fitchville. A mysterious stranger stirs things up with no money down real estate boom, but in his wake come two aliens with plans of their own for the place. 3 - "I'll Die Loving" - Finally, in the last tale, Theresa Sharpe is a woman with a serious problem. Everyone she love explodes. In the tale she finally finds a cure for her problem. But how many of her romances went up in smoke?Written by

OK so Really Weird Tales has 3 short stories... The first one has Martin Short playing this cocky singer, hired by a guy somewhat resembling hugh hefner, at his mansion with a lot of girls who was in his magazine. Has to do with robots, corny and cocky, not my favorite one. The next one I don't believe I even finished watching, about aliens I suppose. John Candy plays this guy who comes to this town and I believe trys to make the town rich or something, the only part I liked was the blue lipstick on John Candy at the end. The third and final is the best. Catherine O'hare plays this girl with special powers, who for the past 20 years (give or take) was in a church living with mean nuns (everyone loves a movie with nuns). The nuns were mean because they "feared for their lives". She had powers to destroy anyone she loved. She blew them up on the spot. She went to get help and someone told her she had a case of PABUS, and the only way she could get rid of it was to fall in love with someone she hated. This short story has corny yet funny lines and I still say lines from it today... The moral of this whole review is, see this, but don't expect the greatest movie of all time...think of it like a fun movie to see, plus if you like sctv, you might dig this.
