Storyline

A documentary filmmaker, who has spent the last 15 years making films like "Aluminum: Our Shiny Friend," is finally given the chance to make the documentary on Indian farming he has always wanted to. The catch? He must simultaneously direct a porn film. But as he tries to make the porn film, which he turns into a musical called "Halloween in the Barracks," he must deal with a temperamental actor, a fundamentalist preacher, and other obstacles. Written by Mike Myers <mmyers@ucsd.edu>

eds dead mom has no respect for the finer things in life
19 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

a command performance from every star involved; this movie presents a fine, enjoyable, and quite entertaining jaunt through mull's exquisite grasp of subtle intellectual humor easily on par with his f.m., the TV show, and white people, and an easy constituent of the jerk, this is spinal tap, and clue. truly one of the pioneering mocumentaries (though this is a film about them rather than in the actual mocumentary genre.)

reiner, mckean, and mull's early productions tend to blend in humor aspects, writing style, and occasionally cast and are pinnacles in the industry of b movies. this collaboration is one of the prime pictures showing the American's loose grasp of dry, non-laugh tracked humor, that so many British television seems to have left us straggling behind in the dust. any b- movie aficionado would be proud to watch and subsequently force upon every person they cared deeply about.

i mean really, a musical nazi porno . . . what's not to nervously laugh at?
