1990 - Opportunity Knocks

Con men Eddie Farrell (Carvey) and Lou Pesquino (Todd Graff) need cash fast and pretend to be repair men sent to fix a gas leak. The con fails, but they escape.
Eddie and Lou find an empty house that they decide to burglarize. When they learn from a message on the answering machine that the owner is out of the country and the man who was going to house-sit can't make it, they spend the night.
The next day, Eddie and Lou are on the run from thugs sent by local gangster Sal Nichols (James Tolkan), to whom they owe money. After they find themselves separated, Eddie takes refuge in the empty house.
In the morning, Eddie walks out of the shower and meets Mona Malkin (Doris Belack), whose son owns the house. She assumes Eddie is her son's friend Jonathan Albertson, the one supposed to house-sit. Eddie plays along, meeting Mona's businessman husband Milt (Robert Loggia), who offers him a job.
Eddie decides to run a "love con" on Milt's daughter Annie (Julia Campbell) in order to gain access to Milt's money. However, Lou is captured by Nichols.
Eddie and his aunt and uncle (Milo O'Shea and Sally Gracie) conspire to get Nichols off their backs for good. Along the way, Eddie falls in love with Annie.

In the background you hear Tina Turner sing “Not enough romance".

    Tina Turner

    Sometimes you've got to let everything go -- purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you'll find that when you're free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.

    I never said "Well, I don't have this and I don't have that." I said, I don't have this yet, but I'm going to get it.

    I will never give in to old age until I become old. And I'm not old yet!

    I didn't have anybody, really, no foundation in life, so I had to make my own way. Always, from the start. I had to go out in the world and become strong, to discover my mission in life.
