There are belly laughs aplenty in this unofficial remake of
Mr Blandings Builds His Dream House
, but director Richard Benjamin runs out of inspiration after an hour and the film ends up being more in need of renovation than Tom Hanks and Shelley Long's new home. However, Hanks does enough to remind us of what we've been missing since he made his mark in serious drama, while Long's perfect timing leaves you wondering why the
star has never quite made the transition from sitcom to cinema. Joe Mantegna and Philip Bosco have sly cameos as shiftless contractors, and Alexander Godunov is fine as Long's smarmy conductor ex-husband.
Yuppie couple Walter and Anna buy a ramshackle old house and set about renovating it, only to see their dream home gradually turn into a nightmare. Anna also has to contend with her ex-husband, who is determined to talk her into giving their relationship another try. Comedy, starring Tom Hanks, Shelley Long, Alexander Godunov and Joe Mantegna.
