Remember Francis the Talking Mule? Without being in any way a sequel, this comedy directed by Michael Dinner about a stockbroker (Bob Goldthwait) and a talking horse that advises him about his philandering stepfather (Dabney Coleman) sounds like an effort to stir up memories of the Francis series. The script is by the appropriately named Stephen Neigher, in collaboration with Hugo Gilbert and Charlie Peters; Jim Metzler, Cindy Pickett, and Virginia Madsen costar.
