A strange comedy, but enjoyable all the same,
This review is from: Delirious [DVD] (DVD)
I used to have this on video years ago and have finally bought this on DVD, if you like John Candy then you'll probably like this.
This is a bit different to the kinds of films that John Candy made during his career, it's more off beat than any other film I've seen him in, but it's unlike any other film I've ever seen because of this.
It's a film set within a television series, I guess you could say it's a bit like Nurse Betty, but rather than being a character that's been written into a show, this is a writer who's had an accident and whilst he's delirious he goes into dreamland and becomes a character in the television show that he writes and has the ability to change the plot using his typewriter.
This won't be for everyone by any means, but I've always enjoyed it, there's lots of over acting and ridiculous storylines, but it's a harmless and good natured film with fine performances by the whole cast, there's also a good cameo appearance by Robert Wagner, sadly two of the films stars John Candy and Raymond Burr have since passed away, they both help carry the film very well.
