Wealthy but loathsome millionaire businessman Sam Stone (Danny DeVito) plans to murder his wife, Barbara (Bette Midler) so he can marry his mistress.
He thinks his problems are over when his wife is kidnapped by an inept young couple (Helen Slater and Judge Reinhold) who threaten to kill her if their ransom demands are not met. But Sam’s life is about to get even more complicated.
The movie twists and turns as a whole host of other people get involved (including Anita Morris as DeVito’s mistress and a young Bill Pullman as her mentally challenged lover).
Airplane! (1980) partners Jim Abrahams, Jerry Zucker and David Zucker teamed up again for this fun comedy.
