It wasn't that Bad
11 December 2004 | by (Harrison, Michigan) – See all my reviews

OK here's the deal Late Saturday Night went to the Video Store all the New Movies were Rented or I have Seen it and didn't like it. So I head to the Middle of the Store where the .50 movies are and I take my best shot and go for the Direct to Video Movies or some of the Oldies but Goodies. Its Kind of like Mystery Movie of the Week.

Here was this Movie on the Bottom Shelf called "The Godson" being that I am on a Rediscovery of "The Godfather" I picked it up and wasn't hopping for Much just something to kill a Saturday Night. The Plus it did have Dom Deloise and Roddney Dangerfield. I thought it would be fun to watch Comic Masters from the Hey Day of the Johnny Carson Tonight Show years.

What I ended up Watching was a Take off of The Godfather and all the bad Gangster Movies of the 80's and 90's a lot of the Jokes were really bad but then some of them were dead on drop down funny. By the middle of the Movie I stoped what I was doing and actually paid attention to the Movie and had a few good Laughs. I liked the Sides to the audiences that started to take place out of the Blue halfway through the Movie. Which was my Favorite Part I am a Sucker for the breaking the third wall on the stage or Screen.

OK it could of been a lot better Maybe play it straight and not go for the Low humor that the Movie went to at times. on the other hand some of the Jokes they could of worked more on such as the Mafia University. What a Great Idea they could of made the Movie on that with the same Results toward the End.

It was nice to see Roddney Dangerfield again A Comic Mastermind that is gone.

If you are still reading this and going on my Recommendation of seeing this movie or not I say give it a Shot if not this Give the Movies in the Middle of the Video Store a chance there are some gems. The Middle of the Video Store is Like a Box of Choclates You never know what you are going to get.
