Warm memories of a simpler time..
5 May 2003 | by (Fort Worth, Texas) – See all my reviews

This is one of those rare gems that seems to have been lost in recent years, the funny movie parody. Along with Hardware Wars and Pork-Lips Now this was set as a movie trailer for a "Close Encounters..." spoof. I haven't seen this film in over 20 years but some hilarious moments still stick with me. If you are a fan of CEot3K you know well about the first encounter Richard Dreyfuss has on the railroad tracks in the film. Here it is accompanied by singing mailboxes and bubbles in his truck. With the kooky voiced lead actor forever repeating the line "This means something..." from the original film. Great fun, check it out if you can find it. Also take a look at "Hardware Wars", "Pork Lips Now" and "Bambi vs. Godzilla".
