Dan Aykroyd (The Blues Brothers) is running the asylum - and ruling the airwaves - as a mental patient turned talk-radio shrink in this comedy of loony proportions co-starring Charles Grodin (Midnight Run), Donna Dixon (Spies Like Us), Walter Matthau (The Odd Couple) and Chevy Chase (Fletch). When asylum inmate John Burns (Aykroyd) intercepts a call to his psychiatrist, he brashly impersonates the good doctor. And he does such a good job that he's given an offer to fill in for a stressed-out Beverly Hills celebrity psychologist (Grodin) as the host of a call-in radio advice show. Escaping the hospital, Burns is soon gleefully crossing swords with his predecessor's beautiful colleague (Dixon), crossing paths with a crafty crackpot (Matthau) and crossing the line into complete hilarity as his offbeat psychobabble takes ultra-trendy La-La Land by storm! Directed by Michael Ritchie (Diggstown, Prime Cut).
