Chevy and Aykroyd..can't go wrong.

3 years, 9 months ago at Nov 4 18:28
I was in the mood for an older comedy and I haven't seen this film before. With a cast of Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd..what could go wrong? The plot is decent and kind of predictable, but it's a fun movie with some great laughs and funny situations. There's even a "special" cameo by someone who's quite the man!

Dislikes: Little bit longer than it needed to be, for the type of film..... read more

Films and the critics who hate them (743 movies items)

"There are seeds of something funny in the film's beginning and in its premise, but they are soon dissipated by so little sustained wit, and so much scenery. - Janet Maslin, New York Times The script is so patchy that most of the genuine laughs are squeezed into the first half; the rest is a rather tacky and confused extended joke about the nuclear arms race. - Stephen Garret, Time Out Landis never bothers to account for the friendship that springs up spontaneously between these two antipathe"

Interesting film facts (389 movies items)

"The Russian phrase spoken by Dan Aykroyd to the Russian agents is: "Chem men'she znaesh', tem lushche." This translates as: "The less you know, the better." Chevy Chase took the role originally intended for Joe Piscopo. The movie was inspired by Bob Hope and Bing Crosby's "Road" movies, thus explaining Bob Hope's cameo appearance. Hope's cameo of less than 30 seconds playing a round of golf through a tent was his final appearance in a film. The movie that Emmett Fitz-Hume (Chevy Chase) wat"

"June 23 This was another one I wasn't expecting too much from because I thought this was going to be another Brewster's Millions by judging the rating. I liked it more than I expected it to. I wouldn't call this movie hilarious, but it did have some funny moments. This movie also makes me wish that Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd were in more movies together."
