Trivia

In this parody, the Kurtz character becomes "Fred Mertz" aka "Mad Man Mertz". This is a takeoff on both "Fred Mertz" (from I Love Lucy (1951)) and especially the infamous TV pitchman Mad Man Muntz. See more »

This is, without a doubt, the funniest spoof ever.
23 March 2005 | by (Glendale, Ca.) – See all my reviews

"Hardware Wars" has its moments, but *every* moment in "Porklips Now" works for me. From Billy Gray's uncanny Sheen-like look and sound, to the incredibly and purposefully stupid dialog, to the spot-on Brando take at the end, "Porklips" is a masterpiece. When I first saw this on the original VHS tape that included "Hardware Wars" and "Bambi Meets Godzilla", I was working in a small video store where we were allowed to watch just about anything we wanted. This became a prized screening choice among all of us who had seen "Apocalypse Now", to the extent that we had to restrain ourselves from showing it every day, lest we grow tired of it. That never happened, btw . . . We need a DVD!
