Several shady and shallow people try to profit, one after the other, from a physically deformed teenager whose face looks like a snout of a rodent and who lives hidden in a city garbage dump, alone and miserable.
Charlie is an accountant whose rat race life consists of an ungrateful family and boss Mr. Culbertson who ignores him. Then a miniature person Hugh advises him to live a little leading to crazy adventures.
Those responsible for this movie had complete freedom to create the funniest, most bizarre scenario possible with whatever contemporary political figures they chose to use. They had Bill Maher, who is widely considered to be one of the funniest political humorists of our time, although to be fair, this was before that.
The result is an extremely un-funny movie that is entirely too stupid to be bizarre. It is an endless parade of badly imitated 80s political figures which can't really even be considered a parody since their actions in the film have absolutely nothing to do with anything that actually happened.
No matter how generous you are to the story, it is never even remotely plausible. And poor Bill Maher isn't even allowed to be funny in this movie, not that I think he could have pulled it off anyway.
