Quick Review

James Belushi and Charles Grodin are great in this one. Especially Charles Grodin is brilliant as the frustrated business man, whose life is taken over by an escaped prisoner/baseball addict.

This is one of those small gems, I discovered by chance. It's clear to me when I watch a movie, where the actors have a good time, that is the case here and a feeling of fun pervades everything. Highly recommended viewing for optimum relaxation.
