from the screenplay by John Herman Shaner, Al Ramarus, Charles Shyer & Alan Mandel
Corgi, London, 1979
The blurb on the back:
Saved by a woman from the hangman's noose. Henry Moon could never have guessed just what the lady had saved him for!
Check this cast: Jack Nicholson, Mary Steenburgen, Christopher Lloyd, John Belushi, Danny DeVito. Can't go wrong? Oh yes you can. This wasn't a very good movie - the presence of four screen-writers suggests a lack of coherence - and certainly the book is a waste of time. Don't bother. (Not that you were going to.)
ARTISTIC MERIT: 1/5
