Movie Reviews

Seems to get Funnier with each Viewing
gobirds2 | New England | 02/26/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I'll admit that I did not like this film the first time I saw it in the theatre. It started out at a snail's pace and seemed equally strained for laughter. However, there was a smattering of truly insightful comic genius throughout that made it mildly enjoyable. Then I watched it on video with a group of people. For some unknown reason I found myself laughing uncontrollably. As I watched the film again I then began to notice how much it followed the GODFATHER saga in parody. Once I began to realize what the filmmakers were doing it all started to take shape and made good comic sense. Not only did it follow the same inspirational format of AIRPLANE but it took the same approach with its audience: if this joke doesn't work for you we have plenty more lined up one after another and eventually you are going to start laughing. What's interesting is that you actually have to listen carefully to what is being said to really get the full effect of this well thought out comedy because it is much more than just a parody."
Hilarious satire with some obvious goofs

"In this "Godfather" takeoff, Lloyd Bridges plays Don Cortino, this film's Godfather. The film parodies every major Mafia film and includes some send-offs on others as well. It's slap-stick, haphazard and mostly funny.

It's also low-budget. It's clear the film's pretty low-budget. Even I can see the film equipment and props used to create the very special effect in the funeral scene. I don't usually catch these goofs so they are pretty apparent.

Balance the laughter with the bloopers if you can. The film did not do well in the theatres, but it's fun with a group of friends. I'd watch this one with a bunch of friends, some pizza, and libations and see what happens.
