It's a stiff
13 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Brothers Sam and Max inherit a mortuary from their late uncle with the added stipulation that they must pass the Mortuary Academy which is run by Paul and Mary (Paul Bartel and Mary Woronov from "Eating Raoul"). who don't want the brothers owning the mortuary and do everything in their power to stop them. This movie has numerous actors that fans will remember (Pual Bartel, Mary Woronov, Tracey Walter, Wolfman Jack, and Vance Colvig Jr) All those name faces from B-movie greats can't mask that this film stinks more then a year old corpse. Bad taste CAN be funny. IF done right, pretty much every subject can bring about a laugh or three, but that requires talent, something this movie seems to be lacking. Furthermore, to mention this film in the same sentence as the classic "Porky's" or "Revenge of the Nerds" is damn near blasphemy.

My Grade: D-

Eye Candy: Cheryl Starbuck is topless
