(out of 5)
Weak, one-joke comedy that overstays its welcome long before it is over. Two bumbling corporate employees (Jonathan Silverman, Andrew McCarthy) decide that a printout with a financial report error should be reported directly to their company president (Terry Kiser). Their boss, in turn, decides to invite them to his exotic resort with the intention of having them killed, but unfortunately a mob boss does away with him first as revenge for messing with his wife. Now Silverman and McCarthy have to avoid getting caught with a dead body while avoiding their boss’s murderers who know they were witnesses to the crime. The solution? Dress the body up for a party and keep everyone thinking that everything is fine while enjoying the their new digs. Fun set up, but very poor execution that will only appeal to the most undemanding viewers.
