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>

Trivia

In the film within a film, "Amazon Women on the Moon," which is supposedly occurring in 1980 but made in the 1950s, Butch continually refers to things which have been long gone as though they are still around. The Brooklyn Dodgers, Ebbets Field, and a Studebaker are just a few examples. There is also a reference to the 48 U.S. states, when in actuality there have been 50 states since 1959. See more »

This movie says that it stars lots of actors and they aren't kidding! A cast of thousands and these are actually actors that you know!

There are various comedy vignettes surrounding the satire of a 1950's Sci-Fi movie called "Amazon Women on the Moon". If you have ever had insomnia and watched an incredibly bad movie in the middle of the night, then you can relate. "Movies til Sunrise"!!! These astronauts sit in computer chairs with seatbelts. No matter how you cut it...these chairs have wheels. No matter how many times that the booth announcer says that there will be no further interruptions...get ready for another interruption. If you listen carefully, the year of the movie and the name of the movie changes.

If you think that you have had a bad day, watch what Arsenio Hall goes through. Splat!

Don't point the remote at your face as you may be sucked into the TV as Murray (Lou Jacobi) is! This is ongoing throughout the movie as Murray appears on every channel. Unfortunately, his wife won't let him stay on the Playboy Channel.

One of the funniest sketches include the scenes in the hospital after Brenda (Michelle Pheiffer) and Harry (Peter Horton) give birth to a son and their doctor (Griffin Dunne) loses him! Henry Silva does an extremely funny rip-off of "Fact or Fiction" (could Jack the Ripper and the Loch Ness Monster be one and the same?). There is a funeral "roast" involving Steve Allen, Rip Taylor, Slappy White, Henny Youngman, Charlie Callas and Jackie Vernon. One of the funniest bits is "Son of the Invisible Man". Griffin (Ed Begley, Jr.) believes that he is truly invisible and flits about in a bar (wearing nothing)! Trust me...the nudity is integral to the plot.

The faux commercials are hysterical. How about "hair looming"? You can actually have a literal rug stapled to the top of your head (in complete privacy). Don Simmons (David Alan Grier) is a black singer without soul. Want to liven up a party? How about serving "Silly Paté"? It tastes great and bounces high!

Don't bail out during the first credits as the best is yet to come! Carrie Fisher and Paul Bartel participate in an "unclean" PSA! This is produced by Miracle Pictures whose motto is "If it's a good picture, it's a miracle".
