Awesome last laugh is worth it, 14 March 2004
Author: paz9 from Philadelphia, PA

Yeah, the jokes are old and silly, yeah, there's no continuity. But I remember seeing it in a theater, that last 20 minute skit, the longest one, was gut-busting and so hilariously funny that it was worth the wait. I have never cried tears of laughter so hard before or since.

Everything else about the movie is dumb. It is hard to imagine how it was ever financed. I remember the reviews of the time putting it down and calling it a big dirty joke in the poorest taste. Well, yes, every sketch is an unoriginal 5th grade toilet joke. Everyone, except the last. That is a 6th grade toilet joke. But the joke is acted out and drawn out and actually something comparable to a vignette from Woody Allen's "Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Sex", only way funnier, if you can imagine that.
