Movie Reviews

One of the worst

"If you liked Caddy Shack II, you will like this. Until I watched this, I had really believed that Caddy Shack II was the worst movie I have ever seen. No longer. I am a HUGE RODNEY FAN and I laughed at half of his one liners, unfortunately he only delivers a few during his rare appearances in this film. Save your money. This movie truly stinks."

"It it were possible to give less than 1 star this Mob turkey yarn would get it. I bought it because it had Rodney Dangerfield but fell asleep watching it. This film had great potential to be a great mob SPOOF film along the lines of the many Mel Brooks's spoof films but was utterly runied by a poor script."
If you have a really random sense of humour...

"(At least I act like a kid.)

This movie is not for everyone, unless everyone is like me, in which case they should all see it right away.

First of all: the plot really doesn't matter much at all, so if you're going to see this movie, either you need to appreciate plotless movies, or be a big fan of Kevin McDonald (it's a dream come true!). Though the subtle hints that maybe the plot will come into play later is nothing less than hilarious, and Frito Calzone appearing throughout the movie is worth purchasing it alone, in my opinion.

But if you're a Rodney Dangerfield fan (who isn't very easily pleased), you might be disappointed, as he's hardly in the movie. But he does diver a few classic lines, and is as funny as ever.

Some of it is hit and miss, but if it hits, it's laugh out loud funny. For instance, the school Guppy is sent to, to learn the tricks of the trade- it's a school teaching people how to partake in many illegal activities, and right in plain sight, too. Somehow, the teachers seemed remarkably realistic as they were quizzing their students on killing techniques. It was comedic genius, in my opinion, though some people might find it drab and dragging.

This movie is random, insane, out of control and I love it. If you're into wacky humour, like maybe, "Wrongfully Accused", then I'm sure you'll fall in love with The Godson. If you're into Kevin McDonald hooking up with beautiful girls and being the cutest, wimpiest Mafia Boss in perhaps all of history, I'm sure this movie's for you. And finally, if you're into creepy stalkers who trail around menacingly for absolutely no reason and dinosaurs in taxi cabs, I'm sure that you'll enjoy this one!
