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…
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.
An ugly, unfunny film. Most of the attempted humor comes from Chevy Chase's tired observational comedy. But it really doesn't seem like it wants to be a comedy, rather some kinda The production design shouldn't be the most interesting thing in a Dan Akroyd film. He really needs another creative partner (Landis, Ramis) to rein in his baser impulses. John Candy manages to stay above the fray, giving both his roles (the town constable and his mute sister) a quiet dignity. Too much of the plot hinges on random occurrence, "uhh then this thing happened to save them."
Hell everything is set in motion is nonsense. Chevy Chase offers total stranger Demi Moore a ride to Atlantic City to her…
You should do a book
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
How do you manage to make a movie with Chevy Chase, John Candy, and Dan Akroyd terribly unfunny? Fill it with nonsense, disgusting set pieces and practical makeup and a plot that doesn't have any reason to exist and doesn't go anywhere.
Nothing But Trouble, the directorial debut from Dan Akroyd and subsequently his only film is not a good one... in fact it isn't even laughably funny. The reason for this is because it doesn't make any sense whatsoever. Chevy Chase and Demi Moore are going on a trip with two spanish stereotypes, they get stopped for speeding by John Candy who brings them to Valkenvania where they're sentenced to stay in Dan Akroyd's Tim Burton/Pee Wee cringe home.…
This has got to be one of the most bizarre big-budget movies ever made. It tries to be funny, but it comes off more as creepy and gross. What has been seen cannot be unseen.
I used to hate this movie when I was a kid, it freaked me the fuck out with bizzareness and unfortunateness, now I kind of love it.
I realize that most of my lists are going to be horror film related so I decided to take a…
