This 1980 comedy is slight but entertaining, with a terrific castheaded up by former &quot;Saturday Night Live&quot; star Jane Curtin. Fittingly,Curtin would later become half of the 1980s classic sitcom duo &quot;Kateand Allie&quot;, sharing TV laughs with co-star Susan Saint James. Here, thetwo women share the bill with a pre-&quot;Tootsie&quot; Jessica Lange, who wasthen underrated as an actress and better known for bombing in Dino DeLaurentis' version of &quot;King Kong&quot;.<br><br>Curtin plays Elaine, a sophisticated missus whose husband has run out,leaving her with a tasteful hillside home, and a pile of bills she canbarely pay off. Meanwhile, divorc&eacute;e Jane (Saint James) struggles toraise two kids, and can't afford to marry her fianc&eacute;, hardware storeowner Robert (Fred Willard) &#150; forcing them to spend intimate moments inthe back of a car. Louise (Lange) is also battling differences withhusband Albert (Richard Benjamin), a dentist who underestimates hiswife's desire to have an income of her own &#150; and who leads the IRS toclassify his wife's antique store as a &quot;hobby&quot;.<br><br>Of course, the ladies decide the easiest problem-solver is to steal aball full of floating dollars at the local shopping mall.<br><br>It's a slight premise, but the performances are enjoyable, not onlyfrom the leads, but also from supporting characters. While our sympathyis with the screwball ladies, it's also fun watching Benjamin squirm asa selfish oaf, in a scene with dental hygienist (and future B-queen)Sybil Danning. Also entertaining are Dabney Coleman as a cop romancingElaine, and Eddie Albert as Max, a now-daffy ex-Marine and father toJane. One of the best scenes involves Curtin and former SNL costarGarrett Morris, playing a utility representative.<br><br>The pretty Oregon town of Eugene, home to the University of Oregon,also lends its character to the scenes, with on-location shoots addingto its realism. Not only that &#150; counter-cultural Eugene *is* the sortof town where well-meaning citizens would put on a play at the localshopping mall. It's a fun trip back in time for anyone who evenslightly remembers the inflationary 1970s and early 1980s.

Look at those clothes! Look at that wood paneling! Righton!<br><br>This movie has everything: ugly shopping mall, kids swearing, an aniqueshopaccually called &quot;the olde antique shop-ee&quot;, references to retainers beingtightened (not a pleasent memory :P), people smoking everywhere, JaneCurtain exposing herself!<br><br>The writing is some of the worst I have experienced. You're in for atreat.The exposition is clumsy. The jokes are so corny. The storyline isliterallyheld together with a wad of scotch tape and long string of contrived gags,dated jokes, and tired film conventions.<br><br>However, I liked it. Call me crazy. It had heart.The comedic timing is right on. All three of the female leads aregenuinelyfunny and they had true chemistry. Jane Curtain is hilarious, she canreallytake some pretty bad writing and work magic with it. (hey just look atSaturday night live!). In the end, there's always a generous supply ofstockcharacters for all the ladies to play off of.Not only did I get a kick from the endless economy jokes, but the endlesswardrobe changes, and endless earthtones. (The whole movie is one big blurof brown and green.)<br><br>I honestly can't rate this movie, because it is beyond classification.Justwait until it comes on cable and tune in

When I saw this film in the theatre the entire audience was alive withlaughter. There's more story here than most contemporary comedies, whichmay make for some head scratching by younger folks seeing this film, butthegags hold for anybody who's had to scrimp and save to make endsmeat.<br><br>This is a timeless film for anyone (woman particularly) who've fallen onhard times. It was a hit when it was first released, and still getslaughstoday.
