What were they thinking?
This is one of those movies where you shake your head and ask how could such a talented group of people get together and make such a horrible piece of crap.

The script is lousy, the story has no logic, the scenes have no flow, the dialogue is wooden, and the whole thing plays like an amateurish B-movie. Is it really surprising that the writer Ron Koslow hasn't done anything significant since? As for the director, John Landis, I can only guess that an inflated reputation and backers with too much money and too little experience combined to unleash this atrocity on us. The story, such as it is, seems to center around the search for some stolen gems hunted by some Iranian bad guys. Jeff Goldblum, in his trademark understated style tries to play it sincerely but there are times when he looks positively embarrassed by his part. I suppose the only reason people bother to watch this anymore is the presence of the young Michelle Pfeiffer and her very brief nude scene.

Some film students might want to study this one as a lesson in how not to do it but the rest of us will pass, thankyou.
