4.0 out of 5 stars HERE'S A FILM YOU WILL EITHER LOVE OR HATE October 25, 2006

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.


'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.

4.0 out of 5 stars This movie scares me March 9, 2004
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.

Chris Thorne (Chevy Chase) is a stock market whiz who needs to attend a buisness meeting. He agrees to take Diane Lightson (Demi Moore, in her last comic role before she, like Tome Hanks, went on to roles that only won her Oscars.) to Atlantic City along with a bizarre couple, and becomes smitten. However, after a pass through the desolate village of Valkenvania (the working title of the film), that will have to be put on the back burner. You see, Chris has been pulled over for a minor traffic violation, and he, with the rest of the occupants, is hauled off to the house of Justice of the Peace Alvin Valkenheiser (Dan Aykroyd) for a trial. Can Chris, Diane, and the rest of the group escape before they become just another news story and memory?
I agree with the critics on one thing: this is not the stars' finest hour. They turn in good performances for the average script they are given, but the agreeing stops there. This is a surreal, strange, and fun way to kill an hour and a half. Memorable moments include a drug using quartet getting sent into "Mr. Bonestripper", a machine that looks like a guy and has jagged metal pistons for teeth. They go in, their bones come out and hit the walls with the sounds of a pinball machine. Another one is the appearance of the band Digital Underground (for all you rap fans out there, this is a rare movie appearance of Tupac Shakur) as a band hauled in by the JP, who joins in (on organ)with their chart-topper, "Same Song". The DVD I picked up in a bargian bin (I'm a cheapskate, I know), and no surprise why: It's an early Warner one, with sub-par full frame video and adequate sound, but NO EXTRAS! Unless you see this DVD in a bragain bin, get the video. As is the case with many movies, good movie, subpar DVD.

1.0 out of 5 stars gross, disturbing, stupid, and just not funny September 17, 2011

This movie starts out okay. The beginning set me up for a very mainstream comedy with some bad acting. It seemed like it was going to be a movie that I could watch once, enjoy, and then forget about.


When I first saw the cars pull up in front of the courthouse/mansion, I felt like I had just fallen for a bait-and-switch scam. Had Akroyd started out on a darker note, I probably would have been more open to this movie. (Not that it wouldn't have still sucked, though.) Actually, the whole movie might have been tolerable had he been going for horror instead of, um, "weird" comedy.

Sometimes the judge's nose turns into a penis for no reason. I had thought that he would turn out to be some kind of shape-shifting alien or monster and that he started to revert to his original shape when he got emotional. But there is no hint that he is anything other than an old man who belongs in an institute for the criminally insane. Also, he kills his victims by putting them in a roller coaster called Mr. Bonestripper (exactly what it sounds like). The family eats some extremely disgusting-looking sausages that I expected to turn out to be human flesh harvested by the bonestripper machine. But this never comes up. Had this movie not been so abysmally bad, I would have thought that it was meant to be implied that they were cannibals. But since this movie is so stupid, I'm not sure. You do see bones everywhere, but no blood or other body parts. (There's a bit of deus ex machina when the machine jams as the hero is being fed into it.)

Another plot hole: at the end, Chase and Moore manage to escape this hell-on-earth. They go to the police, who, surprisingly, believe their story.
