Editorial Reviews

Join the irresistible Ted Danson (two-time Emmy(r) winner, TV's "Cheers") and the unpredictable HowieMandel (TVs "St. Elsewhere") as they find themselves in A FINE MESS. While making a movie at a racetrack, lady crazed actor, contartist, and all around bungler Spence Holden (Danson) stumbles on two goofball thugs, Turnip (Richard Mulligan) and Binky (Stuart Margolin), doping a race horse. Always ready to cash in on a golden opportunity, Spence phones his roller-skating carhop best buddy (Mandel)for some quick loot. When the two hoods discover Spence's plan, the chase is on, taking all four guys on a madcap comedy romp that includes hightailing it from the cops, the Mob, and the gangster husband of one hot-to-trot wife! Written and directed by Blake Edwards (THE PINK PANTHER, VICTOR VICTORIA), A FINE MESS features a great soundtrack with music by The Temptations, Mr. Mister and Smokey Robinson.

This is a very funny movie, personally i am not a big fan of Ted Danson, but he is so likable that you can't help but cheer for him, although this film has never gotten a lot of attention as a major comedy, i for one like it, every time i watch it i can't help but to laugh, Columbia/Tri-Star should acknowledge this as a very funny movie, it may have a shallow story, but comedian Howie Mandel keeps you laughing also. Danson & Mandel work so well together that you want to be part of the action, even serious actor Paul Sorvino is very funny as a bumbling would-be godfather, it seems he wanted to mock that image, even NYPD Blue's Dennis Franz shows his funny side as Danson's mouthy brother-in-law, but Sorvino's bumbling hit men (Margolin&Mulligan) have such bad luck that you can't help but feel sorry for these guys, one scene involves them crashing into a police car, then Franz, then stumbling onto Sorvino's semi-naked wife who just happens to be with Danson, but it is Howie Mandel's comedic performance that shines here, as he tries desperately to flee Danson's mess, but gets caught in the middle at every turn, but the most funny part is the last 20-25 minutes when see Danson & Mandel in Sorvino's house hiding from him at every turn, all the while Danson is trying to romance Sorvino's wife. you could say that this is "Cheers in L.A." with Danson playing almost the same character. If only Columbia/Tri-Star would rerelease this on video as well as put it on DVD, that would be a dream come true.

Some ten or twelve years ago I saw A FINE MESS at the movies and laughed a lot. Give it a try. Director Blake Edwards reaches for the slapstick ring he grabbed with his PINK PANTHER movies in A FINE MESS and many of the jokes succeed. Actor Ted Danson's character reminded me of the bumbling ladies man he played on the TV show "Cheers" and he's just as funny here. It would seem that the wardrobe budget was cut for actress Julianne Phillips' role.

Ted Danson and Howie Mandel star in this 1986 comedy.
Two pals are chased by the mob while trying to make
quick loot. I've always enjoyed this film and Ted and
Howie are good together. This dvd has nice picture
and sound, but no extras. I recommend this good
80's comedy.

From the very start, the slapstick starts with a foot chse scene reminesent of the Keystone Kops. A typical pairing of a couple of guys - one a smooth fast talker and his simple victim of his friends antics not unlike Abbott and Costello. Go to the batchroom before you watch this movie.

Hilarious! Is Blake Edwards a legend, or what? If I want to laugh, he's the guy I search my movie library for. This one has it all. It's seamless comedy in a not-so-seamless world...something everyone needs now and then. All 5 stars...would give more if they added stars.

I was looking for this movie for so long and couldn't find it. The DVD arrived right on time and it was in excellent condition. The picture quality was superb. It was like having a new DVD. Thanks for carrying this movie.

When you want to relive the 80s, movies from that era are the way to go. Ted Danson and Howie Mandel are in their younger days here and in a comical way find a way to survive tough times. I liked this show
