A reimagining of the 1980s Chevy Chase films can be a bit convoluted, as well as pointless and episodic, but has a playful, laid-back presence in the new incarnation of Irwin Fetcher byJon Ham (Baby Driver). The goofiness has an inspiration from the mid-1970s novel by Gregory McDonald with a lighter directorial hand from Greg Mottola (Paul). A decent cast includes Kyle MacLachian, Marcia Gay Harden and another Mad Men alum, John Slattery as sardonic editor. A little style emerges in this reawakening where catastrophe and high jinks ensues for a former investigative reporter now researching a novel on an Old West painting. It must be said that Annie Mumolo is a comedic scene-stealing figure as an added rental townhouse neighbor in Eve.
