Synopsis:
Writer Jack Gable's (John Candy) soap opera has it all: deceit, trickery, sex, sex, and more sex and that's just behind the scenes! Candy is hilarious in this laugh-a-minute daytime serial spoof which co-stars Mariel Hemingway, Emma Sands, Raymond Burr and David Rasche. When Jack clumsily bumps his head, he wakes up in the small town of Ashford Falls, the setting of his popular soap opera. But what begins as a nightmarish scenario turns into the opportunity of a lifetime as Jack finds he can control the events around him...
by writing them! With typewriter at hand, Jack attempts to win the love of the show's beautiful 'bad girl' (Samms), but while scripting his destiny with her, he keeps running into - literally - an accident-prone 'good girl' (Hemingway). Will he be able to win the coveted woman of his dreams? Will he win the coveted Daytime Emmy? Only one thing's for certain: His attempts to write his own ticket will leave you laughing Deliriously!

Enjoyable though lightweight comedy. - Delirious review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
17/04/2010

Delirious no way comes close to being the funniest thing John Candy ever did, though it's a decent enough, enjoyable though lightweight comedy. The laughs are thin on the ground but John Candy is as watchable as ever and while the film has a certain charm it lacks the comedy spark of other great John Candy films like 'Planes Trains And Automobiles', 'Brewsters Millions', 'The Great Outdoors' and 'Uncle Buck'.
