Save it
A thoroughly inept black comedy/horror send-up about a wealthy man who arranges for his mistress to go through a wedding ceremony with his corpse after his death. Arnold's will also entangles a number of other members of the family, who make supposedly gruesome exits via acid-laced cleansing cream, a shrinking suit, etc. The plot itself isn't so bad; it's the relentlessly chirpy American humour trowelled over everything, the impossible ballad, and the way the performers pause in delivery as if waiting for laughter, that really makes Arnold unbearable.
