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>

Quotes

Rip Taylor: What's this, an audience or a funeral? Now, pay attention, please. But I'm a little nervous because Harvey was a personal friend of mine, and there's not a person in this room that Harvey Pitnik did not touch. I must say, he touched me for 40 bucks and Steve for 20.

A Funny Parody On Everything!
28 January 2004 | by (Las Vegas, NV) – See all my reviews

Cross a 1950's B-Movie with Saturday Night Live skits popping in every 15 minutes and you have something like this.

Great cast selection and an ingenious put together of skits as commercials and sitcoms. The writers here have created a 25 minute mock B-movie 'Amazon Women On The Moon, missing more than half of its essential plot. Interspersed are hilarious commercials, infomercials, and filler shows that take up the slack as the original movie reel breaks, burns through, or just simply comes to a commercial stop in the baseline movie.

Some of the skits are side splitting funny. This film was not intended to have a very straight forward plot or screenplay, but finds itself quite interesting. You'll find yourself trying to guess all of the actors spotting cameos and appearances throughout the film.

This movie is great to add to a video collection or definitely worth renting a few times with friends. This has all the makings of a comedic cult classic.
