Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 10/05/1984
"...It's a lunatic ball, an extremely genial, witty example of what is becoming a movie genre all its own....Hard to top for pure, nutty fun."
Variety - 08/08/1984
"...Very funny....[Lithgow] gives one of the most controlled out-of-control performances on screen in recent years..."

Production Notes:

  • Though the ending of the film promised a sequel, financing problems halted its production. Richter's screenplay for the follow-up film was reworked and later became John Carpenter's BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA.
