Recently widowed Doctor Michael Hfuhruhurr, the world's greatest neurosurgeon, injures Dolores Benedict in a car accident.
He operates on her and saves her life using a technique of his own invention: cranial screw-top brain entry. As Benedict recovers, Hfuhruhurr falls in love with her and they are soon married.
However, Benedict is only interested in Hfuhruhurr's money and he still yearns for his previous wife.
They travel to Vienna to attend a medical conference where Hfuhruhurr finally divorces Dolores, meets a mysterious Doctor, and becomes entangled in a serial killer hunt....
It's certainly is a random movie, from beginning to end, it never fails to surprise with all the very silly, but funny sight gags, and the hilarious one liners.
Everything gets thrown into the mix, from brains on rowing boats, to suction hands, to paper doors, but the writers and director, keep the narrative in check, and the story consistent.
It's not for all tastes, and I could understand why this is a love or hate movie, because its so ahead of its time, and so offbeat, that I wouldn't be surprised if Monty Python confessed during their reunion to writing this.
Martin is as good as always, Turner has never been better, and it's the kind of film you find something different in every single viewing.
