Steven Spielberg produced this slapstick comedy of destruction directed by Richard Benjamin. Tom Hanks and Shelley Long star as Walter Fielding and Anna Crowley, an upper middle class New York City couple living in the cramped Manhattan apartment of Anna's ex-husband, Max Beissart (Alexander Godunov). When Max evicts them, the couple purchases a Long Island dream home. But the house proves to be more of a nightmare than a dream, with faucets spewing muck, collapsing staircases, exploding light switches, and crooked repairmen and contractors. As the new home collapses around Walter and Anna, so does their relationship.
