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.

There's a REASON you've never heard of this movie starring Demi Moore, John Candy, Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd AND Tupac Shakur (yes, 2PAC). Even a Baldwin Brother was in it. This very well may deserve the honor of being the worst movie ever made.

And it absolutely COMPELS you to watch it completely to the end. Possibly. And I STILL don't know if I love it or I hate it. But it takes dark comedy to a whole new level. A true original--you've NEVER seen anything quite like this. And most of the actors in it probably hope you never will. See it, that is : )

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.

Honestly, I don't know if it deserves 5 stars. This is one really weird movie, with some disturbing characters that can be disturbing. The plot is interesting, but not mind-blowing. Dan Aykroyd's character is thoroughly disgusting. Chevy Chase is himself, as is John Candy, which is to say, enjoyable.

I found myself thinking that this is just too absurd, and yet I watched to the end and said, "that was interesting". I guess I would recommend it to friends with the caveat that this is one weird movie.

This is an excellent movie in spite of the presence of Chevy Chase. I know it was considered terrible won some Razzies and was a box office flop, however. Give it a chance be open minded, this is better than most of the crap put out now days. I'm surprised it's not a cult movie.

Kind of cheesy, but a classic I remember from long ago. I wanted my son to see it, because I thought he'd enjoy it. He;s 11, and after it was done, he said, wow, that was weird....

Good for the price.
