Steve Martin is on manic form as Dr Hfuhruhurr, a pioneering neurosurgeon who marries a scheming patient (Kathleen Turner) while secretly being in love with his dead wife's disembodied brain. Turner turns up her Body Heat persona to amusing effect in this bout of Frankensteinian tomfoolery from Martin and his regular director Carl Reiner (The Jerk, Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid). It's not every day you hear the line "Into the mud, scum queen!" Mental.
