As financier Christ Thorne (Chase) falls head over heels for Diane Lightson (Moore) he agrees to take her to a business meeting to get to spend more time with her. But soon they find themselves trapped in a small town in the middle of nowhere, where the local court seems to follow their own rules.
Dan Aykroyd’s first and only attempt at directing seems like a comedy version of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, delivering the type of gross-out humour that will amuse some and repel others. The movie has a certain grotesque peculiarity which is charming and some parts a roller-coaster fun, but it moves to often to plain silly, to be the hit it could have been (Bobo and Lil’ Debbull being perfect examples). The frustration felt when watching the characters go from bad to worse, makes this nightmarish in a funny way and though you keep finding yourself shaking your head in disbelief and feeling grossed out, you can’t help being charmed by this unique dark comedy.
The movie was at first set to be released as Valkenvania but poor testing proved that no one understood the title, which was changed to Nothing But Trouble.
