Henry Perkins (Chevy Chase) is a mid-level exec who grabs the wrong briefcase on the subway and ends up with millions of the mob's money. Perkins and his wife (Penelope Ann Miller) are soon planning an early retirement -- that is, until several unsavory characters come looking for the cash. Now, everyone's trying to find the Perkinses, including the couple's best friends, a pair of cops that may be on the take and the menacing Mr. Big.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Any movie that starts in a wax-fruit factory can't be all bad."
‑ Michael Ordoņa, Los Angeles Times
"I can imagine how this script played funny on stage, given the right cast. However, it just never seems to work on the movie (or rather television) screen."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"The cast is uniformly pretty terrible, playing what are already broad situations over the top."
‑ Bob Strauss, Los Angeles Daily News
"... never-hilarious but often-quite-amusing ..."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"Welcome, Mr. Chase, to the absolute bottom of your career."
‑ David Cornelius,
"An old-fashioned screwball farce with a few amusing moments, just not enough of them."
‑ Chuck O'Leary,
"Perfectly serviceable middle of the road comedy."
‑ Jim Hemphill,
