The combination of Winkler post Happy Days, Long pre Cheers and Keaton in his film debut resulted in a box office hit back in summer of '82. What's surprising is just how tame the picture is considering the subject matter much like 'Pretty Woman' which would come 8 years later. Howard's direction here certainly didn't show any promise of anything to come though. A fun script by Mandel and Ganz.
This one cracks me up every time I see it. Keaton is full of the kind of energy that makes a comedy like this work. Not only will you find a young Kevin Costner, but Shannen Doherty leads a group of Blue Belles into combat against a hapless Winkler in an elevator! There's also Richard Belzer as an enforcer.
