A 1983 comedy film starring Creator/SteveMartin as Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr (it's pronounced exactly how it's spelled), a brilliant but arrogant neurosurgeon newly married to a monstrous [[GoldDigger gold-digging]] BlackWidow (Kathleen Turner), who belatedly meets and falls in love with his soulmate, Anne Uumellmahaye (Creator/SissySpacek) whose one tiny defect is that she's a disembodied brain in a jar. Hfuhruhurr naturally attempts to find a body into which to transplant her. HilarityEnsues. (No, really!)
