Movie Reviews

A Cute Comedy.
tvtv3 | Sorento, IL United States | 02/23/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"John Candy was one of the true greats of modern comedy. Unfortunately, he spent most of his career performing in poorly written movies which did not allow him to display his comic genius. DELIRIOUS doesn't fit that bill, however, neither does it achieve the heights that it could have.In DELIRIOUS, Candy plays a soap opera writer/producer of the hottest show on televsion. He finds himself constantly battling the other producers who always want to revamp the show and quite frankly would like to get rid of him. While driving in the country for a weekend vacation, Candy is in a car accident and awakens to find himself in a real version of the fictional town he helped create on his soap.The movie is a lot of fun and toys with an interesting idea. However, much more could have been done with the "life in a soap opera" concept to have capitalized upon Candy's talent. The movie has an impressive cast including Mariel Hemingway, Robert Wagner, and Raymond Burr.Overall a charming little movie that's a lot of fun. Great for an evening of escapist delight."

"I have to admit that good writing or not this is one of my favorite escape movies and I wish it would come out in DVD. My liking it has something to do with John's use of the typewriter and his ability to change the direction of the characters through the machine. Once he damages the typewriter he needs to make a technical sevice call to get it going again. You can't beat that. We even get to see a perplexed Robert Wagner and the rest of a great cast."
Excellent John Candy Flick!

"This is a truly great movie! I am a very critical person and one who believes that nothing is perfect, but I loved nearly everything about this movie! It's a well-written and enjoyable film from the late, great John Candy and it also features a great cast of Mariel Hemingway, Emma Samms, Raymond Burr and Charles Rocket. It is a very well cast movie. The one thing I wasn't so thrilled about in this movie was the ending. It was a bit of an obvious ending for any film, although a heart-warming one at that..."
