Editorial Reviews

Get spooked silly when Chevy Chase and Demi Moore take a wrong turnpike exit and find "hanging judge" Dan Aykroyd and "constable" John Candy in a bizarre New Jersey burg. Year: 1990 Director: Dan Aykroyd Starring: Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, Demi Moore, John Candy

Customer Reviews

I would recommend this movie for the whole family order it.

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.

If you want to see just how bad a movie can be, this movie is for you.

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.

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.

*WARNING: THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS*

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.

Nope!

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.

Format: DVD
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?
