What movies was " the lion sleps tonight" included in?

it's an old 90's comedy movie with a couple of guys in hilarious situations. i think in the ending: they all ride an ambulance and the song "the lion sleeps tonight" plays.

    EDIT: hb is right, the movie is Brain Donors. I had it confused with "Heart and Souls" because there is a funny scene where the little boy is caught in the bathroom singing "Walk Like a Man!" and dancing. LOL. I now think the jail scene with "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" is from Brain Donors, not Heart and Souls.

    my original post:


    That was "Heart and Souls," with Robert Downey Jr. It starts out with RD Jr. as a kid and he has 4 guardian angels. They come back into his life after he grows up. I think there is a romantic plot with him and a girl. At one point, he is in jail or something, and the angels are singing that song. I think he was a lawyer, so he was always chasing ambulances... but I might have that part confused with a different movie.

    That was a good movie, I'm going to rent it this weekend :-) Thanks.

    Brain Donors sounds most like your movie:

    Plot Summary for

    Brain Donors (1992)

    Three manic idiots; a lawyer, cab driver and a handyman team up to run a ballet company to fulfill the will of a millionaire. Stooge-like antics result as the trio try to outwit the rich widow and her scheming big-shot lawyer, who also wants to run the ballet.
