Pure Luck ★½ 1991 (PG)

A whoaskedforit remake of a 1981 FrancoItalian film called “La Chevre.” The premise is the same: an accidentprone heiress disappears in Mexico, and her father tries to locate her using an equally clumsy accountant. The nebbish and an attendant tough private eye stumble and bumble south of the border until the plot arbitrarily ends. Pure awful. 96m/C VHS . Martin Short, Danny Glover, Sheila Kelley, Scott Wilson, Sam Wanamaker, Harry Shearer; D: Nadia Tass; W: Herschel Weingrod, Timothy Harris.
