Storyline

A series of short sketches, most of which parody late-night television and the low-budget movies one often finds there. Other skits include a man being attacked by his apartment, a funeral hosted by classic comedians, and a teen-age boy's big night turning into a nightmare. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

User Reviews

A hilarious collection of comedy sketches. Highly recommended!
17 February 2003 | by (The Mitten State, USA) – See all my reviews

Like its predecessor KENTUCKY FRIED MOVIE, AMAZON WOMEN ON THE MOON is simply a 90-minute assortment of short sketches, gags, and spoofs. All of the segments star multiple big-name actors, but they each vary in style, technique, and content. Some rely on humorous dialogue while others (specifically "Mondo Condo") depend solely on slapstick physical comedy. Some (like "Video Date") are pretty risque and could even be considered questionable in taste, while others are 100% family-friendly. Each of the approximately 20 skits do have one thing in common with one another, though: they are all unbelievably hilarious.

Admittedly, there are some jokes that miss the mark and one or two short sketches that are pretty corny, but these dull moments are easily forgiven since the rest of the movie is just so damn funny. My suggestion: grab a friend, a bowl of popcorn, and watch AMAZON WOMEN ON THE MOON today! Be prepared to laugh yourself to tears, and don't forget order the latest album from Don 'No Soul' Simmons when you're done!
