Delirious is a creative and funny master piece. I enjoyed every minute that I watch of the show. It was very nonpredictable and suprised me many of times. The writers of this show wrote this movie with style, and having John Candy, the greatest actor in the world, made the movie that much better. It was enjoyable and fun to watch. It is even a great show to bring your kids to. i would recommend this show to anybody who likes comedy and likes John Candy.

The Synopsis for Delirious (1991) 720p
Jack is the head writer for a successful soap opera, and he's sweet on the show's star, lovely Laura. It's easy for everyone but Jack to see that she's playing him for a sap. But a conk on the head brings Jack some new insights - and some new powers. He finds himself in Ashford Falls, site of his fictional soap opera -- and everything he writes comes true! It's a fantastic opportunity to get Rachel, Laura's character, to fall in love with him. But life isn't easy even in the fictional world, and even when you're the author!

This is a wonderful idea for a movie - the dueling attempts by writers to change the course of the narrative of the movie itself - one is inside the movie, the other outside. I found the movie hysterical.
John Candy is excellent, the lines of Raymond Burr hysterical, Mariel Hemingway charming and sweet and fun, and Emma Samms luscious.
I truly don't understand the few who made negative comments - it's one of the 3 or 4 funniest movies of the 1990s - the humor is more physical, but is otherwise on a par with Sleepless in Seattle, While You were Sleeping, When Harry Met Sally - but it doesn't have the serious side in those movies that moved many.
An enjoyable premise and pulled off really well in spots, Delirious is a fun film that spoofs soap's (similar to the TV show Soap)by allowing a soap writer played by John Candy to dream that he is in the soap opera he writes for. While it the dream, he can change what is happening each moment by simply typing it out on his typewriter, most of what he writes involves his anger toward the shows other writers and a vehicle to make himself a sexy leading man while wooing his love interest played by Emma Sands. Because at some moments Candy's character is simply trying to get rid of people, Candy writes some funny, if weird, things that the characters can't even figure out why they are doing them.
Although the movie lags in places, it has some of the funniest lines I have ever heard in movies, especially the Robert Wagner lines about Cleveland and the running gag about cable TV repairmen and having to wait for them. The cable gag is really dated (I haven't had black bar issues in about 15 years)as is other parts of the film, but it still works.
Raymond Burr does a great deadpan job in his final theatrical performance. Muriel Hemmingway really stinks it up, the rest of the cast is made up of soap actors who do a nice job of spoofing their own genre.
Another good flick that spoofs soaps is Soapdish, does not have the fantasy piece of Delirious, but is also very funny.
