Parody of Parodies !
21 November 1999 | by (Las Vegas, NV) – See all my reviews

This movie was a staple of entertainment for me and my group of friends in High School. While all scenarios are executed with the cutting edge/rapier wit of the late seventies' Lampoon Gang, the part that sticks in my mind is the mock "Anita Bryant" trying her ability to pitch an anti-gay drug called "Homo-Nomo". As usual with this group, nothing is sacred. What may have seemed shocking in 1978 would be considered boring or droll by today's standards. However, I love this movie and if someone has a copy they would like to sell or would make a copy of the movie for me, I would pay $$$.
