Number of Times Seen – Between 5-10 times (Numerous times on cable and 25 Nov 2015)
Brief Synopsis – Yet another collection of comedy sketches featuring a lot of very famous actors.
My Take on it – Over the last few days, I have watched Kentucky Fried Movie (1977) and The Groove Tube (1974) which are both part of the very same genre as this movie.
All three are collections of short comedy sketches.
This one is by far the best and funniest of the trio IMHO.
I really liked the way that this movie deftly takes some of the characters or situations and has them cross over into other seemingly unrelated skits.
Most of the skits in this one are pretty funny but my favorites are the one with Arsenio Hall, the first date with Steve Guttenberg and Rosanna Arquette, the Saturday night video at home and Video Pirates.
Bottom Line – Best of the three movies of this type that I’ve just recently reviewed. Liked the way some of the characters or situations crossed over between sketches. Favorite clips are the Arsenio Hall one, the one with Steve Guttenberg and Rosanna Arquette, the Saturday night video at home and the Video Pirates one. It’s too bad the other two movies weren’t as funny as this one was.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – A number of the cast have worked with presenter and co-director John Landis on other films. These include Ralph Bellamy (Trading Places (1983)), Arsenio Hall (Coming to America (1988)), Michelle Pfeiffer (Into the Night (1985)), Griffin Dunne and Jenny Agutter (the latter of whom appears in a deleted scene which has been included in TV prints; both An American Werewolf in London (1981)) and B.B. King (Spies Like Us (1985), Into the Night (1985) and Blues Brothers 2000 (1998) (From IMDB)
Rating – Globe Worthy
