Painfully obvious "Exorcist"-spoof
30 November 2010 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Leslie Nielsen was always at his best when he could hook up with the "Airplane"/"Naked Gun"-team, which consisted of gifted writers like Pat Proft, Jim Abrahams and the Zucker brothers. "Repossessed" is written and directed by the guy who made "Meatballs 4". That should probably give you a fair idea of what this movie is like, though it does feature less Corey Feldman water-skiing than expected. Somewhat surprisingly there are some jokes in here that work (the bible vending machine ruled), but overall this just really feels like everyone's trying way, way too hard. Especially the visual gags have that bothersome "laugh, damn it!" feel to them, they're so close to "Naked Gun" but just not quite. Same goes for the obligatory breakings of the fourth wall, not bad but not really focused enough to generate big laughs. Nielsen's talents are rather wasted here, though I must say he is about the only element that made me keep watching. It's also a very nice touch that Linda Blair agreed to do this movie, even though I have absolutely no idea why she did. Not because of the solid screenplay, I'm pretty sure of that. This is in all ways a sub-par spoof, but I reckon it's still watchable for avid Nielsen fans.
