Ever since two enterprising young men turned the City Morgue into a swinging business, people have been dying to get in.
The world of Wall Street drove Charles Lumley III up the wall. His new job at the New York City Morgue is quieter - until Billy "Blaze" Blazejowski shows up with a cool idea on how to liven things up.
Directed by Ron Howard (The Da Vinci Code), Night Shift is a breakneck farce rife with hysterical ideas thanks to veteran comedy writers Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel (Parenthood, Fever Pitch). Henry Winkler (Happy Days) is low-key Lumley in a delightfully offbeat performance. Shelley Long of Cheers also scores as a hapless happy hooker. But the casting triumph is film-debuting Michael Keaton as Billy Blaze, launching a career rich in comedic and dramatic highlights since. Is this a great country or what?!?
