Club Paradise (1986)

Burned out and retired after one too many major alarms, a disabled Chicago fireman uses his insurance settlement to become partners with a reggae musician in a seedy run-down Caribbean holiday camp they hope to turn into a first class resort.

The eclectic cast includes British actors Peter O’Toole and Twiggy, American comics Rick Moranis and Eugene Levy and reggae legend Jimmy Cliff, but the gags are about as sparse as the “luxury” facilities provided by the hotel.

Even Williams’s quick-fire routines fail to raise many laughs.
