"...Candy is irresistible..."
In this hilarious comedy, stars of the Emmy winning SCTV comedy troupe lampoon everything from religious cult to kung fu movies. Even the classic television series "Father Knows Best" gets the comic treatment.
A bumbling chauffeur gets mixed up with a religious cult out to assassinate a political leader. John Bourgignon drives a limousine and, in his spare time, plays the drums. After he falls in love with Nancy, the pretty daughter of Congressman Ed Reese, the young couple decides to get married. But a group of fanatics cause John nothing but grief. They want Ed dead and they brainwash the beleagured Bourgignon to get him to do the dirty work for them.
In between sight gags, the film also pokes fun at "Father Knows Best," "The Blue Lagoon" and various other targets.
- Released theatrically in the USA October 28, 1983.
