When police discover that a mob hitman has moved in next door to the Robbersons, they want to find out what he is up to. So they set up a stakeout in the Robbersons' home. Hard-nosed, tough-as-nails Jake Stone is assigned to the stakeout. But now it's a question of whether Jake can last long enough to capture the bad guys. The Robbersons want to help so they are driving him crazy.Written by

During the end credits, a picture of Jake (Jack Palance) doing a one-armed push-up with one of the Robberson's kids was flashed. This was a reference to what Palance did after he accepted his Academy Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role, for "City Slickers (1991)." See more »

Do you know what smoking does to you? It stunts your growth, it yellows your teeth and blackens your lungs. Is that what you want? To be a yellow toothed midget with lung cancer?
I'm keeping my options open.

Chevy Chase, please stick to the National Lampoon Vacation movies. I saw this film only once, when it was in the theater (I'm guessing it wasn't in theaters very long, either) so I've forgotten most of it. The actors (Chevy Chase, Jack Palance and the always delightful Dianne Wiest) deserve better than this tripe. See their other movies and skip this one.
