Synopsis by Hal Erickson

A pre-stardom John Candy first teamed with John Dane in the wacky Canadian comedy-melodrama It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time. Playing the same characters--a pair of incompetent cops--Candy and Dane reunited for Find the Lady. Alas, even Candy's considerable comic gifts couldn't save this muddled story about an heiress' kidnapping. At times the level of humor is so low that it's positively subterranean. Following John Candy's Second City TV success, Find the Lady was picked up by several videotape distributors and released under a dizzying variety of titles, including Call the Cops and Kopek and Broom.
