Please help.
I want to buy an hilarious movie online that I saw a few years ago. Trouble is I cann't remember the name.
It was about two couples driving a beautiful BMW through a 'parish' somewhere near some steel town. They basically get kidnapped. The parish 'judge for life' is trying to marry off his ugly gross huge daughter played by Dan Akrod I think. There's an hilarious scene where they are having dinner at the judges very weird mansion. They are eating these horrible looking huge gray bratwurst sausages and the condoments are travelling around the dining table on a model train.
Does anyone recognise the movie?

I think the one you're looking for is "Nothing but Trouble". It came out in 1991.

Thanks Joe, I goggled the name you suggested and it's the one.
It starred Dan Aykroud, John Candy, Chevi Chase, Demi Moore.

VERY strange movie... Right up there with "Eraserhead" but minus the "film school cool" ambiance. I did rather like the amusement park style "slide of death" doo-hickey.

The part where a model train goes round the dining table carrying the condoments for those huge bratworst sausages that everyone had to eat was hilarious.

OK, next up, SWMBO and I caught the second half of a John Wayne flick on AMC a couple of weeks ago. He played a big game trapper in Africa. Some French woman tags along in the camp and they fall in love, yatta, yatta, yatta. All said though, we both really enjoyed the movie, especially SWMBO. Christmas is right around the corner. Help me out fellas.

Sorry for 'hogging'. Saw a movie years ago about a plane that crashed in the desert and a german model airplane designers got it flying again. I had the movie but it was loaned to someone. I'd like to buy a copy to replace it.

Thanks Popeye. Yeah that's the movie. Is the 2004 remake the original cleaned up or is there a new version----like Cape Fear?

new version with hip actors, we'll see.

The acid test will be to recreate the engine firing scene as only Jimmy Stewart could master the gritty facial expressions. Get the original and watch as the engine turns over, poppa -poppa ..... Popppa...

Popeye, yeah that scene was great! I've ordered the original again.

Jimmy Stewart and the guy who was in Jurassic Park. Some of the worst overacting I've ever seen.

The stunt pilot in Flight of the Phoenix died when the plane crashed at takeoff. The footage remains in the film, cut just before crash.

If you liked "Nothing But Trouble" you might also like "Neighbors" with Aykroyd and Belushi. Belushi plays the straight man in this one. It's also weird, but has its moments.
