Critical reception 
TV Guide says the film "suffers from trying to explore a variety of situations, and ultimately gets nothing said at all. The situations are routine, lacking wit or originality. Director Dennis Klein's pacing is slack and reveals no flare (sic) for comedy."
Franken, appeared on the 1985-86 season finale of Saturday Night Live during Weekend Update; as part of his segment, he announced that Columbia Pictures was test marketing the film in Sacramento, California in June 1986; he also displayed a map depicting the location of the movie theaters showing the film, and provided directions to the nearest theater for viewers traveling there from the San Francisco Bay Area.
The movie's title is taken from the Grateful Dead song of the same name. (Both Franken and Davis were big Grateful Dead fans.)
