Editors Note
Note Director John G. Avildsen's dark satire stars John Belushi as Earl Keese, a mild-mannered suburban guy who lives a regular, straitlaced life with his wife, Enid (Kathryn Walker), while their daughter (Lauren Marie Taylor) is away at boarding school. The Keeses' quiet life is turned upside down, however, when their new neighbors move in next door. Vic (Dan Aykroyd) is a bleached blonde, leisure-suit-wearing motormouth whose wife, Ramona (Cathy Moriarty), is a kinky sexpot. When Ramona attempts to seduce Earl and then claims that he attempted to seduce her, this wild comedy takes off with bizarre and outrageous results. Finding that the newcomers are taking control of their mundane lives, the suburbanites resist the influence at first, but gradually the boring pair begins to enjoy the excitement created by the aggressive neighbors. Earl becomes so inspired by the nutty couple that he starts to relish their zest for life and is willing to make changes in his own life to capture their quirky zeal. Belushi expands his comic repetoire by playing the straight man off the wild and crazy Aykroyd, the dynamic pair once again igniting the screen in this mischevious comedy.
Plot Summary
Summary A peaceful suburbanite and his wife find their lives turned upside down when wacky new neighbors move in next door and proceed to wreak havoc on their lives.
Variety "...Fun....A mere sideways glance between the two conjures up countless funny moments of the past..." 12/16/1981
New York Times "...Casting [Aykroyd and Belushi] in the film version was a good idea....Walker makes Enid a dryly captivating character..." 12/18/1981 p.C19
