Written by way of John Hughes, the mythical screenwriter of National Lampoon’s Vacation, Mr. Mom, Pretty in Pink, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Home Alone, comes this hilarious movie with most comedy at minimal salary! The city con (Frank Whaley, The Doors) and town good looks (Jennifer Connelly, The Hot Spot) group as much as outwit a half-wit pair of would-be burglars, real-life brothers Durmot Mulroney (Young Guns) and Kieran Mulroney (Nowhere to Run). Whaley stars as Jim Dodge, a smooth-talking small-town man with a knack for placing up a entrance―however no skill for containing down a task. But Jim’s existence all of sudden takes a flip for the improbable when he unearths himself locked within the native division retailer one evening with Josie McClellan (Connelly), the daughter of town’s wealthiest citizen, and two bumbling criminals. Directed by way of tv veteran Bryan Gordon (Curb Your Enthusiasm) and co-starring Barry Corbin (My Science Project), William Forsythe (Raising Arizona) and comedy legend John Candy (Spaceballs) in an unbilled cameo.
