[on "Baird's" radio program while taking a listener]
Well, he said "balls", "asshole", "son-of-a bitch" and finally "fuck". We're on okay on "balls", we're riffy on "son-of-a-bitch" and even "asshole" is somewhat anatomically potentially forgiveable. But there's no getting around "fuck".

As a fan of Dan Aykroyd, I watched this film when it was recently shown in the middle of night on TV. I wasn't expecting much, so it came as a big surprise that I loved it so much.
This is the type of film that Dan Aykroyd seems to love to make. A chance for him to 'ham it up' and not take things too seriously. If you loved him in The Blues Brothers or Ghostbusters you'll know what I mean, and you'd be wise to check out The Couch Trip.
Avid fans of Aykroyd will also have fun spotting all the tiny links to his other films in the script!
I can't describe this film without spoiling it for you, so all I can do is tell you to check it out. I can't praise this film highly enough, and it must surely be time for a DVD release!!
