From the box:
In this fiendishly funny comedy from the creators of Airplane!, loathsome millionaire Sam Stone is RUTHLESS. How ruthless? When his shrill wife Barbara is nabbed by inept kidnappers. Sam cries tears of joy… and refuses to pay the ransom. And when the abductors threaten to kill the abrasive heiress, Sam takes immediate action–he celebrates! Ruthless People. Raucous… outlandish… one of the top box office hits of the year!
