Number of Times Seen – 3-5 times (cable in the 80’s and 23 Nov 2015)
Brief Synopsis – Collection of short unrelated parodies of tv and movies.
My Take on it – As a kid, I think I enjoyed the raunchy and juvenile humor of most of the skits much more, but now, they mostly feel out dated and not as funny.
The misses are far grater than the hits in this movie that relies too heavily on one punch line skits that are sometimes too long for their own good.
The “feature” A Fistful of Yen was too long and drawn out which also dragged things out too much.
Of the ideas used here, I think the Feel A-Round one is probably the best.
Bottom Line – Fewer hits than misses from a comedic perspective. Lots of the jokes feel very dated with single joke punch lines that don’t always pay off. Best skit is the feel-a-round.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Original titles for the film included “Free Popcorn” and “Closed for Remodeling”. Presumably both of them were rejected for the confusion they would cause when printed on a theater marquee. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy
