A star-studded 1986 comedy directed by Creator/HaroldRamis. After nearly losing his life while saving a dog from a fire, Jack Moniker (played by Creator/RobinWilliams) decides to quit his job as a fireman and retire to settle down on an island in the Carribean called St. Nicholas. He meets English governor Anthony Cloyden Hayes (played by Creator/PeterOToole), who mentions rumors of a violent revolution.

When Jack stops by at Club Paradise with his girlfriend Phillipa (played by Twiggy), Ernest Reed (played by Jimmy Cliff), who isn't just a reggae singer at the club, but owns it, too, is in debt for $6,000 and hasn't paid taxes, leaving him 2 weeks to pay or else he'll lose the club and the hotel. Jack helps out by taking photos for advertising, which, however, is false, but it ''did'' pay taxes, but Hayes won't take this sitting down as he, along with some other greedy businessmen, want to put more resorts on St. Nicholas.

After the plane's pilot (played by Joe Flaherty) goes crazy upon landing on St. Nicholas, the passengers vacationing get off the plane. Among the passengers are a married couple named Randy and Linda White (played by Steven Kampmann and Andrea Martin), who are on the rocks and [[ThoseTwoGuys two guys]] named [[TheSmartGuy Barry Nye]] and [[TheBigGuy Barry Steinberg]] (played by Creator/RickMoranis and Creator/EugeneLevy respectively), who plan to win over two ladies by getting enough pot to satisfy the four of them.

The critics weren't kind to this movie, but in Williams' case, he's only 12 years away from even worse movies.

* SceneryPornSceneryPorn: You have to admit, even though this movie is a critical disappointment, St. Nicholas is absolutely ''BREATH-TAKING'' to look at.
