Director Barry Levinson (RAINMAN; GOOD MORNING, VIETNAM) returns to his hometown of Baltimore for this story of a battle between two aluminum siding salesmen in 1963. The trouble begins when Bill "BB" Babowsky (Richard Dreyfuss) backs his new Cadillac into the car owned by Ernest Tilley

(Danny DeVito), who is busy arguing with his wife Nora (Barbara Hershey) at the time. Soon the two men are locked in a comical struggle for revenge. Though much of the plot action is downright silly, Dreyfuss, DeVito, and Hershey offer wonderful performances, and director Levinson keeps things

moving with some nice comic touches. As he did in his first film, DINER, Levinson again effectively uses a diner setting in which his characters are allowed to engage in some rambling but very funny dialogue. Comedian Jackie Gayle provides some hilarious observations.
