Where's the caretaker?
31 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

Forget about Me, Myself, and Irene and all those stupid comedies if you wann to laugh until you wet yourself, I suggest Psycho Cop. This is probably the most cheesy, ridiculous movie ever, but it cracks me up. If you thought the teens in those Friday the 13th flicks were stupid, you've not seen anything until you see Psycho Cop. I must admit they do think of the well being of others though, primarily the caretaker. They spend most of the movie asking about him and who stole their beer. Lets not forget the Psycho Cop himself, well he's a satanist and a bit of a comic. He always has a funny zinger to say after he kills someone. The dialogue is awesome, for instance: "I felt someone was watching me, but it turned out to be a deer." I love this movie! Ridiculously awesome.
