Steven Spielberg produced this underwhelming 1986 effort at a slapstick spin on Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House. The pre-Oscar Tom Hanks stars with Shelley Long as a married couple whose efforts to finish construction on their home are sabotaged by costly and sporadically funny accidents. The unfinished domicile becomes a metaphor for their troubled relationship, as evidenced by the attraction of Long's character to a madman violinist (Alexander Godunov). Hanks is the only reason at this point to check this film out. Richard Benjamin (My Favorite Year) directs... but with no flair or distinction. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com [show more]

A young couple move into an incredibly cheap but seemingly beautiful property in the country, only to find that their dream house and ultimately their relationship is coming apart at the seams.
A New York couple (Tom Hanks and Shelley Long) buy a bargain basement house in the country, but when they try to turn it into their dream home, they realise why it was so cheap. Not only do they have to deal with the structural integrity of the building, but also with the conning and conniving builders and plumbers they employ to rebuild it.
