Might be worth something...

Harry is the latest generation of the Crumbs, who are famous and extremely talented detectives.
Talent seems to have skipped a generation and Harry is reduced to work at a remote branch of the Crumb detective agency.
Back at headquarters, Crumb executive Elliot Draison hatches an evil plan which requires the inclusion of an incompetent detective. With Harry on the case, Draison thinks everything will run fine for him.
Despite his best efforts Crumb actually makes some headway in the case...
Before Candy made it big with a certain member of a family called Buck, he went all out with this little film, which is basically a hybrid of Fletch and The Naked Gun.
Its one of those reliable movies from the eighties that you will enjoy, because your a fan of the star. Films you couldn't imagine to be any good if it starred anyone else, such as Funny Farm, Moving, or even The Golden Child.
While it won't win any awards for originality, its still good fun, in a Sunday afternoon sort of way. Candy is fine, and is aided by Smith, sort of preparing her for her future Saw roles.
Jones was the posh villain of choice in the eighties, and here he plays the same character as he did in Ferris Buellers and Howard The Duck.
Its predictable, and some costumes Candy wears are borderline xenophobic, but its harmless in a way only the eighties could be.
Plus its the best film ever where Janine from Ghostbusters is amazingly hot.
