Nothing But Trouble- July 24th

Nothing But Trouble (1991)
English- Black Comedy
Rated “PG-13”
Runtime- 93 min.
dir Dan Aykroyd
 

Man, I was hoping for an awesome Chase/Aykroyd/Candy flick.  It just ended up being a little too dark to enjoy. Kind of like a “Candy” bar.

Story/Writing: 1/2

Original? Yes. Good? Maybe. As I said in my introduction, it may not be what you would expect, don’t be fooled by the beginning.

Acting: 1.5/2

There are some really good characters with a lot of flavor to them, but everyone ends up being a little one-dimensional.

Photography/Set: 1.5/2

Super-detailed sets are the main attraction, photographed through a similarly zany lens.  The costumes are pretty good too.

Sound/FX: 1/2

Pretty good practical effects, especially in the costumes and make-up. The music was a little bland, the guest stars doing little to help.

Misc: 1/2

Meh.

VERDICT: 6/10

Maybe worth a watch, but just so.
