    Dan Aykroyd is running the asylum, and ruling the airwaves

    Release Date:

    Dan Aykroyd is running the asylum, and ruling the airwaves, as a mental patient turned talk-radio shrink in this Michael Ritchie comedy of loony proportions co-starring Charles Grodin, Donna Dixon, Walter Matthau and Chevy Chase. When asylum inmate John Burns (Aykroyd) intercepts a call to his psychiatrist, he brashly impersonates the good doctor. And he does such a good job that he`s given an offer to fill in for a stressed-out Beverly Hills celebrity psychologist (Grodin) as the host of a call-in radio advice show. Escaping the hospital, Burns is soon gleefully crossing swords with his predecessor`s beautiful colleague (Dixon), crossing paths with a crafty crackpot (Matthau) and crossing the line into complete hilarity as his offbeat psychobabble takes ultra-trendy La-La Land by storm!
