Splitting Heirs ('93, 87', IMDb) by Robert M. Young and Eric Idle

Part 1

Cast This is a parodistic commedy for youngsters with some Monty Python-like jokes (think of Eric Idle and John Cleese!), and two sexy actresses (Catherine Zeta-Jones and Barbara Hershey). I don't think that this film is a classic, but not so bad, if you like light jokings. Cathy is quite exciting and sexy in this film, but could have been even better, if she had some possibility to fight for something.
