This movie has and offbeat collection of three bizarre stories that are definitely REALLY WEIRD TALES! All of the following tales are told by Joe Flahery in the movie. 1 - "All's Well That Ends Strange" - A third-rate lounge performer thinks he's made the big time through his friendship with a girlie magazine publisher. Then he discovers what's really behind those buxom bodies and sexy smiles! (ROBOT WOMEN) 2 - "Cursed With Charisma" - This tale concerns the failing town of Fitchville. A mysterious stranger stirs things up with no money down real estate boom, but in his wake come two aliens with plans of their own for the place. 3 - "I'll Die Loving" - Finally, in the last tale, Theresa Sharpe is a woman with a serious problem. Everyone she love explodes. In the tale she finally finds a cure for her problem. But how many of her romances went up in smoke?Written by

I am a fan of John Candy so I will tell you up front that I loved the guy but Cursed with Charisma for being only about 30 minutes long was one of the funniest pieces of forgotten work that John Candy ever did. It summed up the 1980's America perfectly with all the leveraged buyouts, hostile take overs and real estate boom and portrayed the perennial TV real estate seminar and home study salesman that still exist today in the 21st Century.
I rate it up right up there with Planes Trains and Automobiles. If you ever get a chance to see it by all means do you will laugh yourself silly and you will have seen one of the great men of comedy doing what he did best making people smile and laugh. John may be gone but his comedy now belongs to the ages.
