JOHN CANDY is bigger, better and more bumbling than ever as the hilarious Harry Crumb – a big-hearted, soft-headed private eye and mixed-up master of disguise.
When Harry, the last of the great sleuthing Crumbs – and the last person in the firm to ever get an assignment – finally gets a shot at a frontpage kidnapping, it’s only because his beady-eyed boss Eliot Draisen (JEFFREY JONES) doesn’t want the case solved. At stake is the gorgeous daughter of multi-millionaire P.J. Downing, a $10 million ransom, and Eliot’s hot-to-trot mistress (ANNIE POTTS). Attired in a bizarre array of goofball disguises, from a Hungarian hairdresser to a hefty housewife – Harry is bound, gagged and determined to crack the case and prove that when it comes to crime, he’s one Crumb that won’t be swept under the carpet.
