Comic veterans Harvey Korman, Anne Meara, Jack Weston and Tim Conway (who also wrote the script), co-star in this tale of four luckless gamblers who in desperation borrow a large sum for a local loanshark so they can bet on a particular horse. Unfortunately, they bet on the wrong nag and suddenly the foursome must scramble around for quick cash before the loanshark's thugs show up for some bruising payback. Mike Nichols executive produced.
