FIRST OFF: WHY LOVE OR HATE THIS FILM?

Even in our household the opinions are divided on this one. I'm giving it a 4 [instead of a 5] in recognition of everyone else in our family who can't stand to see this film.

IN A NUTSHELL: 'NOTHING BUT TROUBLE' IS NOTHING BUT RIDICULOUS

'Nothing But Trouble' features John Candy, Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, and Demi Moore, with Aykroyd and Candy actually playing two roles each. Candy plays a strange female mute, Eldona, in addition to Sheriff Dennis and Aykroyd plays 'J.P.' the hanging judge and 'Bobo', a huge outdoor only frankenstein-esque relative. This is a film that is obviously a bit too over-the-top for many viewers and also a bit on the gross side for many others. Nevertheless, it strikes me as a very goofy film that features three of my favorite comedians [Akyroyd, Chase & Candy], so obviously I am going to like the film. Nevertheless, I liked 'Nothing But Trouble' enough to add a DVD to my collection where I already had several video copies of the film.

WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT: [could be plot spoilers below]

Chris Thorne [Chevy Chase] takes a detour off the N.J. Turnpike to see some of the scenery and accidentally goes through a stop sign in the Village of Valkenvania and right into the twilight zone.

After a rather absurd chase scene Thorne is apprehended by Dennis [Candy], and along with his eclectic party, is escorted to the Village Reeve, 'J.P.' and into custody for an indefinite stay. Their stay in custody is punctuated by strange people behaving rather strangely while Thorne tries to wise crack his way to freedom, never really taking the gravity of the situation seriously.

This was a film that I loved as a child. Along with "Big", "The Burbs", "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen" and a half a dozen others, if this film was on TV, I would stop everything and see it to its end. Generally, as I get older, I rarely watch a film more than 1 or 2 times. But these films of my childhood I have seen at least a dozen times. After not seeing this movie for at least eight years or so, I was surprised to see how much I remembered and even more surprised to see how much I just didn't "get" as a child.

The obvious that I never realized as a child: the judge's [...]-shaped nose, the hot dog the judge sloppily ate, Chevy Chase's sweet talking to Demi Moore, Tupac Shakur's cameo...etc.

The not-so-obvious was how totally messed up, sociopathic, criminally insane, whacked out of their skulls, the judge's family was. Wow, was this one freaky movie, no wonder I liked it so much as a kid.

Surely, as I watched it with a slightly maturer mind, I did not feel it was as exciting as I used to think it was. In fact, I am pretty sure that anyone who has not yet scene this movie and sees it today, will most probably think that this is a horrible film. However for those whom this film remains a part of their childhood, for [...] new or a [...] used on Amazon, I think its a good deal.

Oh and by the way, the ending to this film really stinks.

For film junkies, Peter Aykroyd, Dan Aykroyd's younger brother, wrote the story for this film. Dan Aykroyd wrote the screenplay.

Maybe I am the only one, but I would like some new films with Chevy Chase in them. New Dan Aykroyd films would be nice too.

It scares the crap out of me, actually. It's not so much a comedy as the embodying fear of being trapped in a nightmarish junk house populated my mutants, psychos and Chevy Chase. It's not what you would expect from the usual Aykroyd or Chase movie, but it is surreal and unique.

This film has some serious problems. The first ten minutes are so flat one could easily walk away before the fun starts, but don't. The rest of Nothing But Trouble is a bizarre, twisted romp. Imagine the editorial staff of Weird New Jersey magazine having a group nightmare and you'll have some idea of what you are about to experience. Time has added another layer of fun to the film as Demi Moore's late '80s/early '90's giant shoulder pads and short shorts add to the hilarity. Chevy Chase is out of place, maybe even flat as the straight man of the film. John Candy seems a little reserved, but still manages to add some magic to at least one of his characters. The real joy is watching Dan Aykroyd in his multiple roles chew up the set! I can easily understand that the humor of Nothing But Trouble is not for everyone, but if you have a taste for the unusual it is well worth checking out. I gave it four stars, perhaps slightly inflated but it does make me laugh!

It's always: how to come down on this one? Is this film an unbelievably schlocky, poorly acted, horribly scripted, under-budgeted, lamely produced film striving for transcendent comedy? Or is it the blackest of black humor, the wacky, loopy side of mass murder and extra-judicial killing a la Eating Raoul? I just dunno, but every time this thing pops on cable I'm there for the duration. Before I know it the end titles roll and I'm confused and conflicted, and giddy that it's over.

First, Chevy Chase as the headlining straight man? After his best in Caddyshack and Fletch? It's like director Aykroyd is setting him up for failure, and Chase appears to bristle at it through the entire film.

For historical novelty we've got the pre-"Deh-Mee" Moore, back when she was normal, even attractive, despite that horrible pasty-white makeup they've piled on her, somehow missing her neck, shoulders and chest. Her off-white outfit is just as nonsensical, with those so stupid post-80s half-heeled pumps, the lame semi-formal dress shorts, and the faux country club halter.

And then there's John Candy as a self-loathing deputy somehow turned hero, as well as mute drag-queen. His incarnation as Eldona is the only interesting character in the whole film. His Dennis character finds escape with the tacky Latins to Brazil, but what of redemption? What of his direct and knowing complicity in the hundreds of extra-judicial murders over the years?
