Richard Clark has just left the well-known Wellington Academy to teach at Marion Barry High School. Now, he will try to inspire the D-average students into making good grades and try to woo a fellow teacher.
Eddie and Lou are a couple of two-bit con men on the lam from a loan shark. They hide out in someone's house and they hear on the answering machine that (A) the owner of the house is out of the country for a month or two and (B) the housesitter supposed to watch the house for the absent owner won't be able to watch the house due to a new job in another part of the country. This provides for a pretty nifty arrangement for Eddie and Lou...until the relatives of the house owner drop by to visit. Eddie quickly adopts the guise of the person supposedly housesitting for the owner, and the shenanigans start from there.Written by
This film was released in March 1990 during Dana Carvey's third season on Saturday Night Live (1989 - 90) and would later make Wayne's World with SNL co-star Mike Myers after his fourth season of being on the show (1990-91) which would be released in the Spring of 1992 (1991 -92) in what would be Carvey's final season on the show (1992 - 93) .

Typical dud has con-man Dana Carvey literally falling into the lap of luxury when he is mistaken as a house-sitter in a high-class Chicago neighborhood. Of course he and best friend Todd Graff are hiding out from Mafia syndicates, but what happens when Carvey cannot leave new love interest Julia Campbell or her kind parents (Doris Belack and Robert Loggia)? The mistaken identity sub-genre and bad guy wanting to go straight routine had been seen seemingly hundreds of times before this and there is really nothing new to endear this one. Carvey, one of those hams that is still fun to watch, does what he can with the weak material. The movie ends up being little more than a stinker. 2.5 out of 5 stars.
