Nothing but Trouble

Dan Aykroyd sure picked a doosy of a dud here when he decided to take up directing. Chevy Chase and Demi Moore play a mismatched couple, who are taken in for speeding in a virtually deserted town. The small hellhole is dominated by a moldy judge (Aykroyd) and various family members. From there on out, Moore and Chase try to escape from the clutches of the vile judge and his demented family. Then again, that's easier said than done.

This barely credits half a star, let alone a whole star, if not for the impressive sets. Everything else is horrifyingly unlikable. If the characters didn't seem like refugees from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, then maybe I could let them off easy. But Aykroyd saddled himself with a incomprehensible script, a cast of mostly grade-Z actors (save for Moore, Aykroyd and John Candy in a dual role) and basically left the public a film just waiting to be crucified. Even the usually likable Candy can't help this stay afloat. Abandon ship, before it takes you down with it.
