Back at headquarters, Crumb executive Elliot Draison hatches an… Runtime: 94 min Release Date: 03 Feb 1989
One of my favorite comedies, Who's Harry Crumb is the story of a bumbling private detective played by John Candy, who uses a number of disguises throughout the film. Jeffrey Jones is excellent as Elliot Dreisen. A relatively clean movie, the comedy revolves around Harry and his earnestness and naivete you could say. A lot of viewers will laugh at Harry, but I laugh with him as he tracks down the kidnappers - and find them he will! A number of good lines, interesting dialogue, funny disguises, and cool cameos. Plus this movie actually makes Annie Potts a believable sex object. A very easy <more>
If this movie were a bomb it would blow up laughing! (by TriNitroToluene)
Simply hilarious. I think the reviewers that gave this movie bad rankings were pretty sour old men. This was a great movie the first time you watch it. After that, it gets dry as most movies do . But the first time is what counts. And the first time I watched it I was a little lad with a broken leg from skiing stuck on the coach since I couldn't get up and was switching around and ended up with the movie and I could not stop laughing! I laughed so much I rebroke the bone, haha, no, not quite. But, I think you get the idea. John Candy is phenomenal. Though many of the comedy scenes are <more>
not entirely original they are done better than anyone else can do them by the late John Candy. Fun for the family ; Little kids won't understand alot of the dirty humor ;
This film is a great one!John Candy is so great in the film! Annie Potts, Jeffrey Jones,Shawnee Smith,Tim Thomerson,and Barry Corbin were all very good in it as well!I just love the scenes where Candy is in disguise! If you like the above cast then check it out soon!
Just take it for what it is...and the real quality shall shine! (by phdgmourey)
Well, having lived in 5 countries, understanding 4 kinds of humors and seen thousands of movies in three lingo, I can say that this movie is a good laugh! And nothing more as it was not created to be more.John Candy was an amazing guy in comedy because he could bring you from tears to laughs to thinking moments. His legacy is to take a good laugh and make life an easier one by understanding how to use the positivity to have a sense of humor!I have seen from Uncle Buck to Planes, trains and Automobiles, and John is talented. Even the series CAmp Candy as cartoons for the environment was <more>
putting the C in cool. After all, at least he did something about it...Do we?This movie is a must for a good slapstick and a no brainer: just what you need after a hard day work...
Harry Is A Crumb. The Comedy Is Fresh Bread (by happipuppi13)
I just saw this film on local TV Sunday Night,June 17th. I had heard of this film for a long time but never had the chance to see it. Being a late 1980s comedy,I was sure it would be crummy.The movie started out kind of slow for me,I felt it took too long to demonstrate that the bolts of Harry's brain are missing a nut or two. A few of the gags didn't work for me as well but then,thankfully the ball got rolling and so did I! Those having seen this know that Harry's has been hired to fail in the solving of a kidnapped young heiress case,because of his incompetence. Those behind it <more>
are the very people who did hire him. I think the first really funny thing Harry said that let me know this would be good after all was,"If we can find the crazy typewriter that made this ransom note,we'll have our man!" Referring to the pieced together note from magazine letters. Talk about a cuckoo lose in your clockwork!Harry also manages to get his tie caught in a paper shredder,go flying through his employer's office on a runaway exercise bike,goes flying through an air vent system of a hotel dressed as an Arabic air-conditioner repairman.He's assisted by the sister of the heiress,played by then teen Shawnee Smith,who went on to play Linda the receptionist,on Ted Danson's CBS comedy "Becker". She likes Harry but knows he really doesn't have a real idea of what he's doing. She doesn't hurt him by saying so,despite how he talks like a man whose watched to many TV detective shows. She doesn't want to see him fail and look more foolish than he does.Annie Potts is great as the mother of the heiress,who could care less if her daughter lives or dies and is a wonderful villainous "B". If you get my meaning. The male players are nit-wits also but only because they foul things up for themselves by both being attracted to Potts. She looks fantastic in this by the way .In his own befuddled way,Harry comes out victorious in solving the case,rent-borrow or buy he movie and find out how all the little crumbs lead Harry to bread. 8 out of 10,two off for the slow start and jokes that didn't work. Otherwise,"Harry" was hilarious. END
When people talk of John Candy, it's always see "Uncle Buck" or see "Planes, Trains and Automobiles". Well I've seen both, Uncle Buck is a film I love where as Planes, Trains and Automobiles just isn't quite the great comedy people claim it to be. Who's Harry Crumb is by far funnier and while it's comedy may be predictable it is funny nonetheless.John Candy plays a bumbling detective called Harry Crumb, who comes from a long line of former Crumbs who were great detectives. The only problem is, Harry Crumb doesn't have the brains the former Crumbs <more>
had and so ensues the endless errors of the hapless Crumb in his determination to find the kidnappers.Having to stand alone from by far the greatest bumbling detective films ever, The Pink Panther series where Peter Sellars still stands atop, was always going to be a hard task but I think it makes a good go at it.The humour is one you know you shouldn't be laughing at but you find yourself laughing anyhow. The film has a certain appeal about it that makes you feel sorry for Crumb and wish that he solves the case but lets you laugh all the way to the end.One of the better John Candy films and I would go as far as saying that is is better in terms of laughs than Planes, Trains and Automobiles, but if anything see this film for the part when John Candy is on top of the fan, I had tears in my eyes through laughter.
