Plot: Radio guys, after a mishap keeps them from traveling to South America to cover a Civil War, attempt to fake it while hiding out in New York.
Clever idea, but this just doesn't have enough to say. The chances were there, too, but opportunities to comment on the role of the media or government in these sorts of international situations are not seized. Instead, this misfires over and over. It's both not silly enough and not serious enough, and there wasn't a single time I felt like laughing.
There aren't a lot of movies that I watch and think are a complete waste of time, but the time spent with these unlikable characters should have been spent doing something else.
