Trivia

Barbara Crampton had earlier been in Fraternity Vacation in which did a nude scene with Kathleen Kinmont. In Roger Ebert's review of Fraternity Vacation that due to the said nude scene the Barbara Crampton and Kathleen Kinmont characters were treated as hookers. Barbara Crampton plays a hooker in The Godson but ironically kept her clothes on throughout this movie. See more »

Dear lord......
16 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

Why is it good character type actors who are funny in little roles always want to be the star of a movie? Why can't they just accept the fact that they're really good at the bit part that everyone remembers?

Kevin McDonald fits this to a tee, and this movie proves it. It's really bad parody of The GodFather. It has what looks like a good cast and it SOUNDS like it's gonna be funny, but all it turns out to be is a few sight gags and cameos strung together by a pitifully bad script. The 'stars' in the film include Rodney Dangerfield and Dom Deluise. But it follows Guppy, McDonalds character, throughout this godawful flick. How he's trying to take his family legit and blah,blah,blah.....

Why can't he just get the Kids in the Hall back together? It seems like he can't break out of the mold that he was on that show. He plays weird little characters. Nothing else. I still like him as a bit player, but he's proven that he definetly can't carry a film. Put a big pass on this one.
