Starring: Martin Short, Danny Glover, Sheila Kelley
Release Date: 09 August 2012 (USA)
Running Time: 96 Min.
My Rating: 10/10
When a wealthy businessman's accident-prone daughter, Valerie (Sheila Kelley) goes missing on a trip to Mexico, private detective Raymond Campanella (Danny Glover) is hired to find her. After many failed efforts to find her, a psychologist decides to use a new tactic, a accountant for the company, Eugene Proctor (Martin Short), who is similarly accident-prone to relive the course of events Valerie. Perhaps he can use his super bad luck to find her...
With a comedic duo such as Martin Short and Danny Glover, how can you go wrong with this? It's a 90's dream team, with nonstop laughter for the full ninety some minutes, some of the accidents were unbelievably done but while watching the movie you begin to realize how accident-prone they really are. When trouble comes for Proctor, Raymond also pays for it, which tests his patience. If you haven't seen this movie yet, it has recently become available on DVD in a comedy 4-movie marathon pack and can be found in most Walmart $5 bins across the nation, for 3 mediocre titles and one gem it's a no-brainer that it's worth the buy.
