This is the third film to star Danny Glover in 1991. The others include "A Rage In Harlem" and the Oscar nominated "Grand Canyon" starring Kevin Kline and Steve Martin, who would co-star with Glover's co-star in this film, Martin Short in the Disney remake of "Father of the Bride", which was also released during the Christmas holidays of 1991 for Oscar consideration by Twentieth Century-Fox.

When Dr. Monosoff sets up the broken chair at the conference table, he leaves no room to sit at the table without moving the chair (which would have obviously revealed the broken leg). When Eugene sits down, the chairs have been moved back allowing ample space to sit without moving the chair. See more »
I am trained in martial arts. Judo, aikido, karate. The first thing they teach you is self-control. If someone calls you a jerk, you don't hit them. You just walk away.
...Ah! See? Complete control.

What has everybody got against this movie? It's damn funny! Martin Short and Danny Glover going over from NYC to Mexico to search for the accident-prone daughter of Short's big company boss Highsmith. Monosoft, played by the brilliant Harry Shearer, has the idea of sending Eugene Proctor (Short) to Mexico with detective Raymond Campanella (Glover). The jokes come thick and fast and, although sometimes predictable, the movie goes along fine with plenty of wonderful slapstick thrown in all over the place. Probably the funniest scene of Eugene inflating to twice his size because of a bee sting in the helicopter! All in all, this is not a movie to be taken too seriously! It's a funny, light-hearted film with plenty of action and comedy thrown in that will always entertain well for people of all ages.8/10
