Night Shift 1982 ★★

Henry Winkler and Michael Keaton team up as morgue workers who moonlight as pimps, or "love brokers", in a Ron Howard film.

The setup never delivers on the promised comedy and makes an ill directed move towards melodrama. Excessive use of “That’s What Friends Are For” sums up the heavy handed nature of the film.

The Reverence: A frat party in the morgue. Apparently Kevin Costner is even in the background somewhere.
