This film throws joke after joke at you until you are laughing out loud! It all starts when the family begin to believe that there garbage is being stolen by someone Stanley remembers called sender! The film then leads to them foiling a weapon's deal with the army!
Truly good fun!

OK this is a silly film with a completely absurd and sometimes frustrating plot but if you can get past the first 20 minutes it is really good fun. All the major cast members enter into the spirit of the piece spurred on by the enthusiastic direction of John Landis. Just one note on this DVD, to give it a family rating there has been some cuts, notably the scene where Mark Metcalf meets the terrorist leaders. Sadly we don't get to see the pleasure on his face as he demonstrates the awesome power of his goods. But it's still worth a look.
