Dangerfield fans, Rodney has returned in a new comedy that doesn't disappoint, one bit. Although this bombed at the cinema, I found this whole affair funny, smartly comical, if original too as this time our bulging eyed Rodney takes the p..s out of talk show hosts. He, Wally Sparks, is a no holds barred t.v. host, who's show is up for anything, including people getting their face pulverized by sledgehammers or walking on glass. His one nemesis, is this Governor (the wonderful David Ogden Steers). His warring young son, secretly invites his number one fan and idol, to a party at his father's mansion, and here is where things heat up, where Rodney and his female assistant (Mazar) stumble onto a sex scandal, involving a struggling actress hottie, who, yeah, doesn't believe in "cheap sex". Again, we get to watch Dangerfield go completely crass, and over the top, where the laughs come thick and fast. He even takes the mickey out a familiar Risky Business scene, this time instigated by strip poker. MWS is a very funny movie, as this is how we like seeing Rodney, and we would have it mo other way. Burt Reynolds, solid, has a small part as Wally's longtime boss/friend at the t.v. station, threatening to shut him down, after many complaints. Reynolds has a "toad" of an assistant, a suck up Police Academy Proctor type, who goes out there to expose Sparks, but always ends up with egg on his face. The whole film is one hell of a riotous comedy, fittingly appreciative and refreshing, after the five year span of his last pic, 92's Ladybugs. A male Showgirl's face is evident too as a backstabbing judge, a fine actor in fine form. Seriously, if you're a devout Dangerfield fan, you should find this film a hoot. There's also an underlined message, about fatherly love gone astray. Ron Jeremy appears briefly, doing what he does best, this time, seen on a small screen.
