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.
"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…
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.
Well, you certainly won't see anything quite like this, that much is sure. Also, the film to be discussed on the net episode of CINEMA CHASE.
Watching this actually makes me nauseous.
Had to do this one in a few sittings. Just completely abhorrent in every way. I'm embarrassed for everyone involved.
With the cast that this movie has, you'd think it'd be a pretty decent horror comedy. Well, you'd be wrong.
Nothing But Trouble is jus one huge misfire. Barely funny or even interesting to watch, every member of the cast is wasted here in this flop of a film directed by Dan Aykroyd.
Nothing But Trouble is a comedy
Jay Cheel once said that 2001: A Space Odyssey works best being watched on an experiential level. I believe the same can be said for Nothing But Trouble. Like 2001, it's a real doozy, and has to be seen to be... seen.
This shit was weird.... That is all.
