Man's closest encounter

"Haben Sie etwas Spinat? Meine Hände frieren so!"
Boy, it had been a long time since I last saw this when I stumbled across it over the weekend. Not as bad as I had remembered, but it sure looks dated in the humor and it was a shock to see a thin Dan Aykroyd... It had also been a long time since I had seen Jon Lovitz.
1.5 out of 5 (C-)
This and Caddyshack II possibly rank as Dan Akroyd's worst films. The dialogue is horrible. The acting is a bit wooden. This came out the year I was brought into the world.
Kind of cheesy, and not very funny, but still fun.
Thing that makes this film work is the chemistry between Ackroyd and Basinger. You wouldn't think they would have any but they do.
Hannigan's character is an annoying little s*** though.
Daft and fun enough. Got the great 80s feel to it.
