TOO MUCH SUN is too much everything for its own good. Although kicking off with a wickedly zany spoof of the spoiled rich, in which precious poodles are whisked off to a canine Club Med, the film's inventiveness quickly spirals downward.
On his deathbed, billionaire O.M. Rivers (Howard Duff) is tricked into altering his will by a grasping Catholic priest (Jim Haynie). The dying man is persuaded to add a stipulation to his bequests: one of Rivers's two offspring must produce an heir within a year of his death or his millions will
go to the church. The catch is that Rivers's son Sonny (Eric Idle) is gay and his daughter Bitsy (Andrea Martin) is a lesbian.
