Plot Summary
Air traffic controller Max (Chevy Chase) has a life so stressful that he feels himself constantly on the verge of a breakdown. When his girlfriend, Darcy (Patti D'Arbanville), leaves him, the feeling worsens until a freak accident endows him with telekinetic powers. He immediately puts them to work in order to win Darcy back, sabotaging every new relationship she attempts. The plan begins to succeed until the two spend the weekend at a friend's beach house, and Max grows mad with power.
