USA - 1982

Movie Review By Monica Sullivan

I really love Paul and Mary Bland. I don't know that I'd want to live next door to them, but they're so nice and so much in love and so happy, sort of like Gomez and Morticia Addams. Their dream is to open a restaurant, and, as luck would have it, this real creep tries to attack Mary and when Paul kills him by mistake, they realize that the creep has money and it's THEIRS, THEIRS, THEIRS!!! But they can't just leave the creep lying there dead Like that, it's unhygenic or something. Paul and Mary figure it out, along with a sure-fire scheme to make even more MONEY! MONEY! MONEY! Is this a great country or what? Bartel and Woronov, who co-directed, have terrific chemistry together and take a look at that supporting cast. Endless repeat value on this one. (Robert Beltran went on to play First Officer Chakotay on "Star Trek: Voyager.")
