Ought to Rot

What the hell is the audience for this film? The plot is so simplistic, it would be straining a ten year old's patience, yet the language and occasional situations are crude enough, it would get a PG-13 these days.

We have a talking horse a bumbling dimwit who inherits half a stock brokerage. The horse gives stock tips to the dimwit, causing consternation to his stepfather, who owns the other half of the brokerage. There's not much else to know, really.

The gags are ordinary, and have mostly been done before, and done better. Our "stars" include Bobcat Goldthwait, Dabney Coleman, and the horse is voiced by John Candy. These folks tend to go for the low-brow material, but this is even too mindnumbing for their talents.
