PG-13

Who's Harry Crumb is an American comedy mystery movie made in 1989 and starring the late and great John Candy. He plays Harry Crumb. Who is that... you ask? Mr. Crumb is the last of a long line of great detectives who pioneered the most respected private investigating agency in the country, Crumb & Crumb. Too bad he's too clumsy and inept to run it himself! Instead he's given a job in the middle of no where to keep busy and out of the way. But when a millionaires daughter is held for ransom, Harry is hired for the case to do exactly what he does best: fail. That's because the head of the Crumb agency is the main culprit! It's now up to Harry to hopefully save the day. It'll be hard- people aren't who they say they are, danger lurks at every turn, and Harry has an I.Q. of about 6.

    If not for some of Candy's inspired bits, Who's Harry Crumb? would have been nothing more than a watered down Ruthless People. [06 Feb 1989, p.C5]
