|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Disappointing adaptation of T. Coraghessan Boyle's comic novel, following the plight of a couple (Fonda, Broderick) after they converge on a turn-of-the-century spa operated in Battle Creek, Michigan, by health zealot John W. Kellogg (the real-life inventor of corn flakes). Maddeningly uneven, with plot threads constantly being picked up and dropped. Carvey is especially wasted as Kellogg's oddball son. Only Hopkins' delightful, over-the-top performance as John W. makes this worth watching.
