A trip mustn't always lead to a fall

Okay, a comedy, it seems like. Dan Aykroyd's starring appearance sees to that. His character, a smart-ass mental patient (is there any other kind?), manages to finagle his escape and poses as a psychiatrist in Beverly Hills. Most of the other people in the story are better suited to the asylum than he is.

There's some good jokes, but a lot of them fall a little flat. I think this would have worked better with a little more emphesis on the dramatic elements.

In one scene, we see one of the characters in his boxers, but he clearly was wearing another pair of underwear underneath. I can certainly imagine how this would have happened, but somehow it really bothers me that it was so apparent - it broke the realism of the situation.
