Dangerfield to play polygamy for laughs

SHARE Dangerfield to play polygamy for laughs

Rodney Dangerfield is back and he's feeling funny.

The comic has recovered from heart bypass surgery and is about to release a film called "My 5 Wives."

"I was inspired to write the story because my wife is a Mormon and I became fascinated with the whole polygamy thing," he said Monday. "Polygamy's still practiced in over 50 countries."

Set in the fictional town of Redwood Falls, Utah, "My 5 Wives" is not about the LDS religion but instead a lighthearted look at polygamy. It opens nationwide Sept. 8.
