Who Can Dislike Rodney Dangerfield
on February 24, 2008
Rodney slows down in this apparently direct-to-video movie, but it's an amusing take on the always-popular guy-who-inherits-bunch-of-babes plotline. Here, Rodney is a would-be ski lodge builder who finds that to buy some Utah mountain property for his lodge, he has to adopt the local splinter Mormon beliefs. That somehow includes taking three wives, and they become five. He gets some tired gags out of how he has to bed these five beauties, then he takes them to Las Vegas, they quickly become liberated at a seminar, and help save Rodney from a couple smalltown hustlers including a banker played by John Byner, fronting for a mob guy played by Andrew Dice Clay, who wants the property for his uncle, played by Jerry Stiller. Lots of Dangerfield gags, many of them heard many times before, a chase scene in which Rodney's double bests the bad guys, and all turns out well in the end. Lightweight Dangerfield, but, heck, I like the guy and it's among the better of his lesser efforts.
