The cast is game but the plot is lame ...........
23 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Chicken Chronicles" is a very slight teenage sex comedy, centering around Steve Guttenberg's futile attempts to get laid. Although there are a few chuckles, mostly involving take out chicken and Phil Silvers, this is basically a misfire. The jokes are lame, there is no nudity, and really very little story. Most definitely, the "American Pie" crowd should avoid this. It is however suitable for mixed company that can tolerate the endless joint smoking, and sexual references. The film also serves to promote the Vietnam era liberal viewpoint. At best a time capsule of innocent high school pranks, at worst a totally pointless movie. - MERK
