Dante has made many decent films. He truly has a love for camp cinema and the guy knows what he is doing to elicit an agreeable cast and wrangling chemistry moments to make his films work for comedy.

Hanks was a hot commodity in the late 80s, by the time he made this movie he had a number of successful comedies under his belt including Big (1988) and Splash (1984).
