Michael Caine was filming this when his name was called at the 1987 Oscar telecast. No, really! He couldn't be there to accept his win for "Hannah and Her Sisters," because he was busy making this turkey. It is really bad! Film buffs will love spotting all the obvious goofs and plot holes, though.

OK, not all of the scenes work, but you have to give it to Spielberg. He really, really wants this movie to be funny. Like REALLY. The movie is literally dripping with ambition, so you have to give it credit for that.
