The world of Wall Street drove Charles Lumley III up the wall. His new job at the New York City Morgue is quieter - until Billy "Blaze" Blazejowski shows up with a cool idea on how to liven things up. Directed by Ron Howard (The Da Vinci Code), Night Shift is a breakneck farce ride with hysterical ideas thanks to veteran comedy writers Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel (Parenthood, Fever Pitch), Henry Winkler (Happy Days) is low-key Lumley in a delightfully offbeat performance. Shelley Long of Cheers also scores as a hapless happy hooker. But the casting triumph is film-debuting Michael Keaton as Billy Blaze, launching a career rich in comedic and dramatic highlights. Is this a great country or what?
