Terribly tedious amnesia comedy about a P.I. and murder witness (Dana Carvey, lightweight as lint) who starts each day with no memory of anything that came before: Korsakov's Syndrome, it's called. (Kind of an inversion of Groundhog Day, where the hero alone remembers the past. ) The premise seems to be an excuse for nothing to follow from anything else. When a man wakes up in the morning, either he ought not to be clean-shaven or he ought not to be photographed in extreme closeup. And after he's locked up for hours in a steambath, it ought to take more than a comb to make him fresh as a daisy. And if the landlord says he's coming right over, he ought to turn up within two days or before the end of the movie, whichever comes first. And so on. Valeria Golino, James Earl Jones, Michael Murphy; directed by Mick Jackson. (1994) — Duncan Shepherd
This movie is not currently in theaters.
