John Candy (Danny Muldoon), Maureen O'Hara (Rose Muldoon),
Ally Sheedy (Theresa Luna), Anthony Quinn (Nick Acropolis), James Belushi (Sal Buonarte)
Sitcom-stuff romance and a loose remake of 1955's Best
Picture winner Marty, starring John Candy as an affable, heavy-set police officer who falls in love with a shy beautician and hides the relationship from his domineering mother, herself the
object of affection from an amorous Greek neighbour.
Entertaining enough for its duration, with competent
performances from the lead actor and love interest, but it's more notable for a return to the screen for actress Maureen O'Hara after a long hiatus. Everyone involved is capable of much
better work though, and this is merely time-filler fluff.
