Illegally Yours is a 1988 American comedy film[1] set in St. Augustine, Florida where a series of comic mishaps take place involving a blackmailer, a corpse, an incriminating audiotape, an innocent woman who accidentally picks up the tape, and a pair of teenage blackmail victims. The film was directed by Peter Bogdanovich[1] with Rob Lowe[1] starring as Richard Dice, the college dropout who came back home to get his act together. The film's theme song was performed by Johnny Cash.

The film was a critical and commercial failure. Bogdanovich himself considers this movie one of his worst. In an interview, he stated, "I'm not positive, but it just might be my penance for getting on the bad side of all those studio execs while shooting Mask, three years earlier."[citation needed]
