Comedy legend, John Candy (Uncle Buck) is hilarious in this laugh-a-minute daytime soap opera spoof which co- stars Mariel Hemingway (Star 80), Emma Sands (Dynasty), Raymond Burr (Perry Mason), Dylan Baker (Happiness), Charles Rocket (Dumb and Dumber), Jerry Orbach (Law and Order) and David Rasche (Sledgehammer). When Jack clumsily bumps his head, he wakes up in the small town of Ashford Falls, the setting of his popular show. But what begins as a nightmarish scenario turns into the opportunity of a lifetime as Jack finds he can control the events around him by writing them. With typewriter at hand, Jack attempts to win the love of the show's beautiful 'bad girl' (Samms), but while scripting his destiny with her, he keeps running into an accident prone 'good girl' (Hemingway). Will he be able to win the coveted woman of his dreams? Will he win a Daytime Emmy? Only one thing's for certain: His attempts to write his own ticket will leave you laughing Deliriously! Directed by veteran screenwriter Tom Mankiewicz, Delirious was his follow-up to his hit directorial debut, Dragnet, the only two feature films Mankiewicz ever directed.
