Nothing but Trouble
All they wanted was a little getaway. All they got was nothing but trouble.
Stock market millionaire Chris Thorne and investment lawyer Diane Lightson are headed to Atlantic City when they take the wrong exit off the New Jersey Turnpike. A local cop stops them for speeding in a curious town, where they're brought before 106-year-old Judge Alvin Valkenheiser. But the old man's punishment turns out to be as bizarre as he is.
There's a moment in this film when Demi Moore is playing cards with Dan Akroyd as one of two giant greasy babies in diapers while Chevy Chase is about to get married to John Candy in drag with Digital Underground (featuring Tupac) doing the wedding march that I knew that all was right with the world.
Utterly mesmerizing in its hideousness.
Visually abhorrent and appallingly unfunny. I think I developed a migraine after watching it.

Nothing But Trouble is not an unwatchable film by any means. It's actually paced quite well and the look of Valkenvania, the setting of this "comedy", is cool to look at in a trashy, early '90's kind of way. However, it is a terrible comedy because it's missing a crucial element: comedy.
Completely devoid of laughs, the funniest thing about this film is watching Dan Akroyd completely embarrass himself, as the writer, director and actor of this film. He obviously thought this would be a comedy classic on the basis of how many bizarre going-ons he can fit into one 90 minute…
A big dumb eighties FX comedy in the tradition of the Golden Child, Big Trouble In Little China, The Goonies, etc., but made a few years too late and with none of the warmth or charm that made those other movies enduring semi-classics. Nothing But Trouble is a miscalculation of the highest order - Dan Aykroyd ostensibly occupies the director's chair but he spent so much time in the makeup chair that the set designers ended up running the show, which means there was nobody to rein in Chevy Chase, who blankly deadpans nonsensical one-liners into the dark void that is Hollywood's great cocaine era banging grotesquely to a close. Which is to say that this movie is funny in the way that watching something die is always hilarious.
Quite possibly one of the worst movies I've ever seen. I found not a single joke funny, and I really don't understand how Chevy Chase got famous. He is just the worst. 0/5
What a napmare - although this highly discombobulating film actually works reasonably well as a horror film. The thing is, though, that it's supposed to be a comedy! Fascinatingly terrible.
i like them all as actors themselves but this film was nothing...........they must have done it for the money!
Might have been a great Batman movie with Professor Pyg as the villain. A missed opportunity.
How have I missed "Nothing but Trouble" throughout all these years? This movie is strange, but in the best way possible. There is a laugh to be had in almost every corner of this movie, whether it be an obvious joke or something more subtle and dry. The setting is extremely unique, and the characters (who were all portrayed by a fantastic cast) had genuine comedic chemistry. This is definitely a film that I'll be watching again in the not-so-distant future.
Nothing but Trouble is one of the biggest wtf movies ever. It's not a horrible flick as its been dubbed but its definitely not a good film either. Its one of those movies I've seen on basic cable a couple of times but never rented.
The weird story behind this film is it started with Dan Aykroyd using his imagination to picture John Candy in drag and cracking up about it. Why he was doing so is his own business but he ended up with an idea of making a movie featuring his friend John Candy performing in drag and everyone would get a kick outta it as much as he did. His brother Peter then wrote a story which…
At one point, I had to pause the film because my son woke up and I put him back to bed. That was the best part of this thing.
Well, you certainly won't see anything quite like this, that much is sure. Also, the film to be discussed on the next episode of CINEMA CHASE.
I realize that most of my lists are going to be horror film related so I decided to take a…
