Wearing its patent ridiculousness on its sleeve, this slight but generally agreeable comedy integrates the Airplane/Top Secret school of non-sequitur comedy in to a less explicitly parodic buddy flick. The snide James Belushi comes off like a poor man's Bill Murray, but he's watchable enough in his cheerful obnoxiousness; so is John Ritter, whose slow, careful transformation from a timid schlub to a preening he-man is a cut above the rest of the film. Barbara Barrie and Dyanne Thorne have a couple of fun cameos, helping cement the film's likable loopiness. But the fact that screenwriter and novice director Dennis Feldman never again ventured behind the camera is no great tragedy.
