John G. Avildsen was the film's original director. He was fired after two weeks, paid his two million dollar salary, and replaced by Christopher Cain. This wouldn't be the first time Christopher Cain replaced Avildsen as a director, as the same thing happened with The Next Karate Kid. See more »

This summer's gonna be great, right, Gus?
Yeah, it can't get any worse than last summer.
That's for sure. See, last summer was a learning experience. For instance, we know where my father keeps his cigars.
Now, Joe, you shouldn't be smoking. Man, it's bad for you.

Well, this is pretty much your basic slapstick goof ball comedy. You have two fairly dim-witted people who aren't too keen on their surroundings and the havoc they wreak around them, and they get into a bunch if jiffies along the way. There, that was pretty much the lay down of the general story.
Now, the performances of Pesci and Glover, are as usual, right on. They both did a good job with their roles, and the chemistry between the two worked marvelous.
There are lots of situations throughout the movie that makes you cringe your toes in awkwardness, but the movie only managed to get a couple of laughs out in me. Lots of pulling on the smiles, but not really the type of comedy that makes you cringe over and laugh so hard you have tears trickling down your cheeks.
The supporting roles were nicely filled out as well, though many of the characters in the movie were somewhat quirky.
The movie is fairly wholesome to watch and good for an entertaining evening, but I say it is hardly the type of movie you return to again a second time, unless you are a die-hard Glover or Pesci fan.
