After his boss is murdered, Nelson is on the run for fear of prosecution. He hides out in a small town to avoid the police, which should be easy because they know he didn't do it and they aren't looking for him.
David Anthony Higgins,
A man and a woman go out on a "big" third date. He's ashamed to admit he just lost his job, and she's afraid he'll run away if he finds out that she has a kid. Small lies lead to bigger ones and the night gets crazy very soon.

Martin Short sports red hair in this film rather than his natural dark brown hair he usually has. This stems from his work on "Clifford" for Orion Pictures which had been filmed around this time. Rather than change it from the dutch-boy hair cut featured in that film, he wore it in a perm instead to give it a wacky, unlucky look. See more »
After Eugene backs the Jeep halfway off the edge of the cliff, Raymond ends up falling out the back of the Jeep, knocking the tail gate open. Raymond is hanging upside down by his foot which is caught in a strap of some kind. A minute later, we see a shot from Eugene's point of view and see Raymond's hands gripping the top of the tail gate which is in back in the upright (closed) position. See more »
This is a very funny movie that deserves to rated much higher than it is! I have seen it several times and always laugh hard. It was witty and cleverly written, and I think Short and Glover play very well off of each other (contrary to what many reviewers have said.) The scene in the mission is among the funniest things ever put to film. I don't need to write a book about this...you just need to rent it for yourself and you'll understand. It is a true comedy classic despite being a lesser-known film (like some of the other "bests" I might add.)
While there is not a lot of "substance" to this movie, for pure comedy, it is amongst the best!
