A secondary movie, certainly, but fun and funny nonetheless!
Wills (John Larroquette) and Bobby (Bronson Pinchot) are two parts of a ghostbusters type detective agency. The third member, Dr. Preston, is there to keep Bobby under control. That's because Bobby not only channels a man from beyond named Murray, he can also predict future events. Wills is often disgusted with Bobby, for Bob is a bit uncouth and beyond weird. When a Catholic cardinal and pretty church lady are kidnapped, it is up to these three to find them. Helping them along is Sister Elizabeth (Bess Armstrong) who just happens to be Murray's ex-girlfriend! What fun! Will the quartet be able to find the missing folks in time? This is not a large budget film and the script is wandering at times. Nevertheless, viewers could do worse than spend some time with the movie. The cast is great, with Pinchot a standout as the unorthodox Bobby. Armstrong and Larroquette are also quite funny. Who would not love a scene in a car where Bobby, intrigued by the cigarette lighter, ends up playing hot potato with the other two detectives? Now, that's inspired. If you love silly nonsense, and who doesn't, rent this for a night or catch it on late night television. You will be able to make the world's problems disappear, as you chuckle your way into oblivion.
