Nothing but Trouble
All they wanted was a little getaway. All they got was nothing but trouble.
While attempting to seduce gorgeous lawyer Diane Lightson, wealthy gadabout Chris Thorne agrees to drive her to Atlantic City, N.J. But, when some reckless driving draws the attention of a deeply critical cop, they and the flamboyant "Brazillionaires" who tagged along end up in the court of a grotesque and vengeful judge, who has a special vendetta against the wealthy and erudite.
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.
When I first heard about this, I looked at the cast and wondered how the hell it had managed to escape my attention. After watching it, I can totally understand why nobody ever, ever talks about it.
This movie is bizarre. I guess it's a comedy, but there aren't any jokes. It's coming from the same place as The Burbs, Freaked and Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, but doesn't have any of the charm or intelligence of those flicks. There's a bunch of gross shit that could never appeal to anyone, and I spent most of it wondering how the fuck anyone thought this movie would be a good idea.
Dan Aykroyd plays a slimy old dude that's like something out…
Visually abhorrent and appallingly unfunny. I think I developed a migraine after watching it.
"If it was an ambulance you got a chance, if it's in a hearse, it's gotta be worse!"
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…
Kinda like if you made an adult version of The Goonies, except without good characters or a sense of fun or adventure. There's some really great set design, the junkyard mansion setting is pretty amazing and you get to see John Candy in drag and a pre-fame 2Pac appearance with The Digital Underground, but the script just fucking sucks and pretty much every joke falls flat on its face.
Like many, I don't know why this film exists, but there must be some deep reason why Dan Aykroyd wanted to tell this story. All I know is that I have seen worst films than this.
The Best: The crazy fun house like environment
The Worst: Those absolutely disgusting hot dogs
If it wasn't for Film Junk I may have went my whole life without ever seeing this fine piece of art. Thank you Frank.
AWFUL - It's hard to believe that so many talented people came together to make such a repulsive film believing that it'd be a great directorial debut for the usually wonderful Dan Aykroyd.
A very strange film that seems to exist for no other reason than to give Dan Aykroyd an excuse to dress up and hang out with his friends on set. While I never laughed I was intrigued by it I guess, the set design, costumes and art direction are all worth a look at but its confused tone doesn't help anything.
Truly the worst film ever created; congrats Dan aykroyd we knew you could do it
As a kid I remember liking this bizarre film for its excess of grotesqueries and amusement park-like energy. Having rewatched it I have to wonder who the hell Dan Aykroyd thought his audience was? Not gory enough to be a horror film and not eliciting sufficient laughs to be considered a comedy, this mawkishly executed film simply leaves one giggling nervously and asking why? Aykroyd's vile, arthritic creation in the Judge is like giving Fat Bastard from Austin Powers his own movie, Chevy Chase is his typical snide self and Demi Moore seems a bit perplexed as to why she's in the picture. John Candy fares a bit better with his put upon Cop but loses with the transvestite sister…
I wish you can be in my mind when I remember this movie.
WHAT IS THIS MOVIE
Definitely Tupac's best movie.
Favorite films of mine that are not on Blu-Ray in the U.S., or at all. I have seen most of…
