Where do people get ideas like this, and just how do they get them turned into motion pictures? Gino (Paul Sorvino) is a banker summoned to the deathbed of his boss, Theo Marshall (Lorne Greene in his last screen appearance). Marshall doesn't want the bank to fall into the hands of some

covetous relations, so he offers Gino $500,000 if he can help Marshall's son (Gary Raff) renounce his philandering life style and keep the bank profitable. In the meantime Gino's wife (Cassandra Edwards), the mother of eight children, informs her spouse that unless he agrees to undergo a

vasectomy, there will be a vast difference in the couple's sex life. Of course, Gino isn't too keen on the idea, but the thought of spending the rest of his married life sleeping on the couch isn't all that appealing either. The comedy arises from Sorvino's reactions between these two conflicts,

but the material is insufferable. There's no wit to this at all, merely a string of tasteless jokes revolving around the implications of a vasectomy. Robert Burge, who produced, directed, and cowrote this trash, shows no sense for comedy in the least. Sorvino has never been more dismal, and the

supporting cast simply flounders along behind him.
