This is a very black comedy. A mob courier is hired to transport the heads of eight murder victims to a mob boss. However, the duffel bag gets mixed up with the bag of a college student who is off on a vacation in Mexico with his girlfriend and her parents. However, the mother is a recovering alcoholic whom everyone believes is delusional when she claims to have found heads.Written by

Toward the end of the movie, when Tommy has the conversation with Rico and Benny in the restaurant, the guns in Rico and Benny's waistbands disappear and reappear between shots. See more »
Are you telling us that you're gonna find a replacement for the head Charlie lost?
[looking through a year book]
Yeah. We got some time to kill before we go to the airport.
But these are human beings. Innocent people. You can't just kill innocent people because they look like somebody else.
Let me tell you something, college boy, nobody is innocent. Now who is he?
He's my anatomy professor. He almost flunked me.
Good. Here's your chance to get even with the prick. Get me his address.

Tommy DeVito is mentioned as being a bodyguard for Tommy Spinelli (Joe Pesci). It's in fact a gag credit referring to Pesci's role of Tommy DeVito in Goodfellas (1990). See more »
Tommy Spinelli (Joe Pesci) is a mob guy transporting 8 heads across the country as proof of deaths. Charlie mistakenly picks up his bag. He's on vacation with his girlfriend Laurie Bennett (Kristy Swanson) and her parents (George Hamilton, Dyan Cannon). Laurie wants to break up. The mother is a recovering alcoholic. When she finds the heads, everybody thinks she's drunk.
Joe Pesci is aggressively hateful and not in a funny way. Charlie is pathetic and the actor lacks charisma. Laurie is unlikeable. Nobody is likable. Also they are boring. The family slapstick is bland and weak. At least Pesci isn't boring. However the whole movie is unfunny.
