When down-on-his-luck financial planner Chuck Lumley (Henry Winkler), fast-talking loser with a million get-rich-quick schemes Bill Blazejowski (Michael Keaton) and prostitute in need of a pimp Belinda Keaton (Shelley Long) meet at the New York City morgue, nothing will ever be the same on the Night Shift. Now, as odd a group as the trio may be, their talents combine perfectly to transform a warehouse for the dead into the liveliest place in the City as the three go into business as "Love Brokers."

Winkler was an emotionally beaten down morgue attendant, walked over by everyone including his mother and neurotic fiancee until turned into a buttinsky after fed up with his scheming night shift partner. Throughout the film, the anticipated hot-rodder comedian Fonz was MIA and only resurfaced near the end when confronted by the always around the corner 4-legger. Nonetheless, the deadpan soft spoken nebbish Winkler, the outrageous young Keaton, some nudity, an original tall tale, a murder etc. got me smiling, if not LOL, most of the time. Should appeal to most comedy fans.

Who else but Michael Keaton would think of running a prostitution ring from a morgue? Hilarious movie that Henry Winkler was starring in, and catapulted Michael into stardom. I even liked Shelly Long as the good hearted prostitute. The party at the morgue is a classic. Ron Howard did a great job on this movie.

Some good quotes in IMDb but surprised this one was not included:

I don’t want to be a buttinsky, but what exactly is going on?
-I don’t know. Some kind of debutant ball out on the island. Kid wants me to take him and his girlfriend.
And you’re going to take one of the morgue vehicles?
-It’s a limo, isn’t it?
It’s a limo for dead people.
-You see that, kid?
