Stay Tuned ★ 1992 (PG-13)

Suburban yuppie couple buys a large-screen TV and satellite dish from Hellvision salesman, are sucked into their dish, and wind up starring in hellish TV shows such as “Wayne's Underworld,” “Northern Overexposure,” “Sadistic Home Videos,” and “My Three Sons of Bitches.” If they can survive for 24 hours, they'll be able to return to their normal lives. Clever idea for a film is wasted as this one never really gets off the ground; viewers may not want to stay tuned to the low comedy and frantic yucks. 90m/C VHS, DVD . John Ritter, Pam Dawber, Jeffrey Jones, Eugene Levy, David Tom, Heather McComb; D: Peter Hyams; W: Tom S. Parker; C: Peter Hyams; M: Bruce Broughton.
