Monty Python on Sleeping Pills

Although this movie has several moments that compare it to Monty Python, it just does not have the same punch. Not anyone can pull off a dancing private part. Monty Python also knew when to step back but this movie went over the line. It's just too perverted and too lousy for me. The 3 Stooges are a sacred thing and, along with other movie icons, this movie shows no respect. The only up side was seeing all of the cameo appearances and the small jokes that appeared here and there. That's Adequate is a perfect title because that's what this movie is: adequate.
