Once Upon a Crime

Once Upon a Crime

If you're in a really bad mood, this isn't the "comedy" that's going to cheer you up. An obnoxious film, with an all-star cast, involved in one of the dumbest stories in recent memory. The plot involves various characters, who all seem to be on a losing streak with life. Things don't help when this group is accused of the murder of a wealthy socialite.

The only laughs are at the very beginning...for about fifteen seconds! The rest of the time, you have to watch as John Candy, Sean Young, Cybil Shepard and Richard Lewis wallow in bad slapstick for an hour-and-a-half. The only real crime involved here is how they blackmailed such a fine ensemble into doing this picture.
