Storyline
A financier [Chevy Chase] meets a spurned lover [Demi Moore] and agrees to take her to a business meeting. On the way there, they run a stop sign in a tiny town in the middle of nowhere. They are arrested and taken to the local court. But all is not as it seems: the courthouse and the "prison" are a maze of zany booby- traps and deadly contraptions. The antics of the captured couple as they try to escape from the mad judge and his bizarre family make up the rest of this unusual film.

User Review

Give this movie a try before you pass it by…

Rating: 8/10


I, unlike a lot of others, found this movie to be extremely funny- both
in a smart way and a sort of gross out way. Chevy Chase is really funny
with his sort of smart-ass, dry wit, probably his best performance
after Christmas Vacation. From the movies I've seen Demi Moore in, this
ranks as her best and shows that she can do comedy. Dan Akroyd and John
Candy each pull double duty in this one and do it well- I couldn't even
tell the second character Dan was playing until the credits rolled. The
sets are unreal- from the junkyard (complete with piles and PILES of
random junk and the Baby Huey-esquire Lil' Debil and Bobo) to the house
of the honorable judge, it's hard to believe they actually put this
together. Don't take everybody's word, check it out and you won't be
sorry…
