Capital L, small a, Capital F, small o, small n, small g. LaFong. Carl LaFong. Harold: No, I don't know Carl LaFong - capital L, small a, capital F, small o, small n, small g.

Extremely Underrated
29 July 2003 | by (Washington DC) – See all my reviews

This is an homage to many old comedies: Old jokes, Silent movie

plot lines. It's like a Laurel and Hardy film that was never made.

The movie is the joke. Much like Blazing Saddles or Young

Frankenstein. I don't know why more people don't get the joke and

rate this movie higher. As it is, it is definitely underrated.
