Advertising exec Emory Leeston (Moore) writes commercials that describe products with complete honesty, and is committed to a mental hospital as a result. He meets a variety of characters at the hospital, including Hannah, with whom he falls in love. Tepid boxoffice blunder sounds funnier than it is. We give half a bone for the ad slogans, the funniest part of the movie. Our favorite: "Most of our passengers arrive alive" for an airline.

Emory Leeson (as Dudley Moore) and Daryl Hannah (as Kathy Burgess) star in this hilarious comedy. Emory Leeson works in the advertising business. He’s really honest and decides to advertise all his slogans by being honest. Well, his boss doesn’t like this very much and trouble occurs. Now, Emory has been committed to a mental hospital due to all this and hopefully will recover just fine. While there, he meets a young lady named Kathy Burgess and they hit it off. Before you know it, they fall in love. Meanwhile, by accident, his work is published and his ads become a huge hit! Now, his boss wants him to come back to work but Emory doesn’t want to leave Kathy.
