Funnier than you might think
27 October 1998 | by (Budapest) – See all my reviews

You can fast-forward through Lust (a cutesy Boccaccio-like vignette), and Anger (the Diceman riding a one-joke pony about a guy ticked off because he has to buy tampons for his wife).

Greed, however, is pretty funny. Joe Mantagna is a producer for those TV movies of the week which are based on today's headlines. In order to beat his competitors to the hottest stories, he decides to go in for vertical integration .... creating his own tabloid crimes.

When his plan backfires he still gets sweet revenge by producing his own electrocution, with Pisa Zadora singing "My Way" on his behalf.

OK, It isn't "Annie Hall", but it has some laughs.
