When you view this movie you should keep in mind that it was written and filmed in the early 1970s. Pretty dated but real damn funny for it's time.
For those of you that are in your early twenties, it should give some of you an idea of what your parents thought was funny and in your face back then.
Most people didn't have cable TV and those that did didn't have 100 stations to choose from and it was 7 years before Mtv was invented. Most of us were relegated to watching 3 channels if you watched TV at all.
This is also why anyone over 40 will tell you the first 5 years of SNL are better than all of the others combined.
The best segments are the Cooking Show, Brown 25 and KOKO the Clown.
In any case you may find humor in some of the segments or not. It is still worth watching from a nostalgic or historical perspective.
