Beginning in 1978 with Chevy Chase and Bill Murray taking bad-tempered swings at each other backstage at Saturday Night Live, and closing 21 years later with the two doing a skit in the same venue, Nick de Semlyen's history is a trip through the comedy world of the 1980s, delving behind the scenes of movies such as National Lampoon's Vacation, Beverly Hills Cop, The Blues Brothers, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and dozens more. Chronicling the off-screen antics of Steve Martin, Dan Aykroyd, Eddie Murphy, John Belushi, John Candy, and Rick Moranis, this is a frank account of drugs, sex, punch-ups, webbed toes, and how Bill Murray was pushed into a swimming pool by Hunter S. Thompson while tied to a lawn chair. What's not to like?
