This is that movie you've seen pieces of on cable and can never remember the name of, but is so insane that those parts you saw are burned into your brain forever. Chevy Chase and Demi Moore play rich New York socialites who get pulled over for running a stop sign in a backwoods town on the way to Atlantic City. They go before the town judge (a hundred-year-old man played by Dan Aykroyd in rubber makeup worthy of an Austin Powers sequel) and get thrown in the brig for being assholes. The rest of the movie consists the unlikable duo encountering a series of bizarre set pieces and revolting characters, including a flesh-devouring rollercoaster, a giant mute woman played unfortunately by John Candy, a triple-bladed guillotine, two man-sized greasy babies, a performance by Digital Underground, and a toy train that dispenses hot dog condiments. This movie was written and directed by Aykroyd, who I'm sure envisioned a horror-comedy in the vein of Ghostbusters, but ended up with some kind of harbinger of the Saw franchise. If Old Dogs was a comedy made by aliens trying to understand our world, this is a comedy made by a serial killer trying to make us understand his.
