Reel Film Reviews
Rating: 3/5 -- There are worse comedies and the ads are pretty funny.
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
Rating: 3/5 -- Mostly contrived comedy/drama, although the "truth in advertising" campaign is hilarious.
Rating: 5/5 -- Hilarious satire of the advertising industry!
Rating: 1/5 -- An aggressively obnoxious comedy.
Rating: 2/4 -- I wonder if they have a squad out in Hollywood named the Movie Police, who swoop down on screenplays and enforce all of the obligatory cliches and story formulas. Full Review
Emory Leeson (Dudley Moore) is a stressed-out advertising executive who sets off a company scandal with a series of unorthodox, but truthful, ad campaigns. Shipped off to a mental institution, the discredited ad-man finds understanding in a soothing psychiatrist (Mercedes Ruehl), friendship in a colorful group of inpatients, and love in a beautiful but nutty fellow resident (Daryl Hannah). Meanwhile, Emory's truthful ads have become Madison Avenue's latest craze and the agency wants him back--much to the dismay of their former employee, who would rather stay in the asylum, away from the corporate rat race.
When a top advertising executive starts to crack, the firm sends him to a cushy sanitarium for some rest and relaxation.
