Joe Piscopo is the best thing about this film.
18 May 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Okay, I like Piscopo, and have most of his videos, but this truly dredges the bottom. Chuck Vincent attempts to direct this sketch comedy compilation that never quite makes you laugh. There is not enough gratuitous nudity to make up for the lame routines. Piscopo appears in only two bits, "King Dong" and a Steven Spielberg sendup, "Jews". Just not funny.
