Storyline

A naive chicken farmer from New Jersey moves to Greenwich Village to open a coffee house. The obstacles he must overcome include the mob (who, in one of the movie's funniest scenes, surreptitiously follow him in a garbage truck) and corrupt officials--among them, an Irish fire chief, played by Godfrey Cambridge, black comic actor. Written by Leslie Lamport <lamport@src.dec.com>

Odd-ball rare find!
29 August 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

A friend of mine recorded this from cable. Buck Henry is in it as well as wrote it.. His character has shades of Maxwell Smart whom he and Mel Brooks would create soon after. Strange satirical comedy with a surreal edge and over the top characters. I'd love to see it again!
