Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
This comedy is one of the earlier films directed by Ivan Reitman, better known for his later box-office hits Stripes and Ghostbusters. The Canadian penchant for self-mockery is a strong theme in this gender-switched retelling of the myth of Hero and Leander. Here, Hero (Alan Gordon) simply cannot resist helping people who are in trouble, and Leander (Sylvie Feigel) is the richest girl in the world. After a series of encounters, they fall in love and get married.
