Everyone's favorite comedic personalities star in this comedy caper about a lost dog, with enough twists and turns to tangle you up in laughter for a long time. Richard Lewis is an unemployed actor who finds Sean Young in Rome along with a huggable little daschund that turns out to be the hottest dog in Europe. If they can return it to Monte Carlo, they'll collect a big reward. Unfortunately, they take the dog home only to discover its owner has been murdered - and guess what? Giancarlo Giannini, the police inspector, makes them the chief suspects. However, they've got good company, including: John Candy, a compulsive gambler on a bad roll; James Belushi, the world's worst tourist; Cybill Shepherd, his housewife, who feels most at home in a casino; and George Hamilton, a gigolo who's so busy he needs a velcro zipper on his tux. This is an old-fashioned European comedy caper that's packed with more side-splitting stars and surprises than you'll ever see in one movie.
