My Blue Heaven

Steve Martin stars in one of his offbeat roles as a smooth-talking New York criminal on the FBI's Witness Protection Program. Martin is sent to Fryberg, a suburb of San Diego, in order to protect himself from the people he's testifying against. However, keeping crime away from this criminal is a difficult thing to do, even if he's in a goody-goody all American town. The premise is rather corny, but entertaining dance numbers and jokes keeps the audience entertained. Rick Moranis and Jane Cusack also star, but their acting abilities in this film are only second rate. Steve Martin, on the other hand, proves he can play a different kind of role with success.
