Awful, Just Plain Awful
Terrible Chevy Chase-vehicle that is rude, ugly, disgusting, and totally terrible. Chase stars as an air traffic controller who experiences some changes after coming into contact with some radioactive material. The film never does make much sense. Gross-out scenes and stupid sexual references make "Modern Problems" a pure waste of a film that should be avoided at all costs. Turkey (0 stars out of 5).
