Outrageous Fortune ★★ 1987 (R)

Two would-be actresses—one prim and innocent and one wildly trampy—chase after the same two-timing boyfriend and get involved in a dangerous CIA plot surrounding a deadly bacteria. Tired plot. Mediocre acting and formula jokes, but somehow still funny. Disney's first foray into comedy for grown-ups. 112m/C VHS , DVD . Shelley Long, Bette Midler, George Carlin, Peter Coyote; D: Arthur Hiller; W: Leslie Dixon; C: David M. Walsh; M: Alan Silvestri.
