This is one of the films I got in the Mill Creek Drive-in 50-pack collection. This movie is also known as "Prime Time". It's a crazy, politically incorrect comedy.
I don't think this is a comedy that everyone will "get" the humor in - it could easily offend some people if they do not watch the film with an open mind and realize the fact it's crazy 1970s comedy film that is not meant to be taken seriously.
The film is basically a series of fictional television programs and commercials being aired by an unknown group. In between the TV programs and commercials you will see a zany group of people that trying to find out the source of the transmission and put an end to the TV hijacking.
Great little comedy film if you do not take it seriously.
