I foresaw a decent comedy...but it sure wasn't this one! (spoilers)
This had the potential to be a great, dumb 80s comedy perfect for your lazy afternoon viewing. You had the cast for it--John Laroquette and Bronson Pinchot--and a stupid plot: a detective agency that uses an eccentric psychic to solve crimes. But either there was just not enough stupid humor, or there was too much technical detail about the crimes they were solving, that detracted from this potential and the result is anything but funny.
The story involves the psychic, a scientist, a detective, a fender bender and a missing Cardinal. I have to give credit to Bronson Pinchot, though, who actually did make me laugh a few times with his strange psychic practices and acid tongue alter-ego Marty. John Laroquette, on the other hand, seems to be reluctant to break out of his monotoned cynicism, making this more like John Laroquette as John Laroquette.
Even myself, a fan of dumb 80s comedies would say, you're not missing much if you pass on this one.
