Melvin is a pathetic loser of a motorcycle cop who gets demoted to working the night shift as a punishment for his constant screw-ups. During his off-duty time, however, Melvin turns to his secret obsession: comedy. He puts a paper bag over his head and performs in front of audiences as "The Unknown Comic". Unable to balance his two lives, he seeks psychiatric help to try and resolve who he really wants to be. Written by

This is one of those gross-out comedies from the 80's and it's really funny, trust me kiddies. It's what I call "stupid funny" like teen comedies such as Screwballs, Police Academy, The Last American Virgin and other 80's teen-comedies. All you gotta do is get together with some friends who have an appetite for slapstick comedy and laugh at the simplest things and you'll be all set for a "stupid" good time.
If you were around during the early 1980's, you'll probably remember this film. Well, if you didn't go to see it then, why not give it a go now?! It'll take you back for a nostalgic trip to a somewhat simpler time in the world, before the dark times...before the 90's. I'm a bit disappointed to find there were no quotes from the film however. Oh well. My advice to you is buy this film, don't rent it!
