Описание: Джимми Дворски (Белуши) сбегает из тюрьмы и волей судеб занимает в жизни чужое место - место бизнесмена Спенсера Барнса (Гродин). Куча наличных, кредитные карточки, ключи от особняка в Малибу - все оплачено! Тем временем Спенсер охотится в джунглях Лос-Анджелеса за своей любимой книгой. Когда эти два типажа, наконец, встречаются, начинается такая комедия, что только держись! (Иванов М.)
Рецензии: This is a nice, light comedy that floats along to the end so fast that you do not even notice it.
Grodin turns in another winning performance as the up-tight advertising executive that has his life taken over by an escaped convict, Belushi, who only escaped to watch the big baseball match which he has won tickets for, when he finds his Filofax at the airport.
What follows is some wonderful scenes as Belushi lives it up in the lap of luxury and does Grodin's job for him as he tries desperately to catch up with him.
Belushi is best as he tries to break back into jail so he can be legally released less than twelve hours later. Throughout this movie Belushi proves what a star he could have if he had arrived on the scene independent of everyone else, and without being over-shadowed by his self-destructive big brother.
Nevertheless, a very basic, but still highly enjoyable comedy
