John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd are at it again, but this time they're on opposite sides of the fence - the backyard fence, that is. And the results are uproarious! Earl Keese (Belushi) is a slightly overweight, fairly average guy who is approaching middle age. He leads a reasonably comfortable life with his family in their suburban home... until the house next door is bought by a truly odd couple, Vic (Aykroyd) and Ramona (Cathy Moriarty), who quickly proceed to drive Earl crazy. Vic's lunatic behaviour has Earl running in circles while Ramona's coarse seductiveness leaves him panting. In short, Earl's tranquil life is suddenly turned upside-down. If it's laughs you want, these are the neighbours to look in on.
