Storyline

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 Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Great schlock!
18 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a schlock masterpiece, and a truly funny film. It is stupid, tasteless, and perverted, and funny as hell. I like this BETTER than Police Acadamy and many of those 80's cop films like that. Sure, it is raunchy and dumb but it is all in good fun. This also has one of the greatest restaurant jokes I have ever seen...the refill gag. If you don't know what I am talking about see this film. A scene that is also hilarious is a scene when random people on the street suddenly break out and sing. Also, the unknown comic is a real laugh...his jokes are not funny, which is why it makes it so funny! Make any sense? The movie is basically about another unknown comic who is ruining the unknown comic's reputation for an unknown reason! And the worst cops ever are sent to bring justice to this Unknown Comic. These cops make Police Academy look good! See this film if you are a fan of schlock, if not, stayyy awayyy...
