Trivia

According to the screenwriters on Selling Your Screenplay podcast #81, the only reason the film was greenlit was due to a pending Actor strike in Sept 2000, so it was written in 10 days in May, filmed in June and wrapped in August- unheard of for a major studio film. See more »

Goofs

In the doorway, Corky sees his father and puts his suitcase down. In the very next shot, from the other side of his father's bed, he is carrying the suitcase, and puts it down next to the bed. See more »

Quotes

Corky: I never thought I'd live to see the day that an FBI agent would be peddling smack.
Agent Brick Davis: Don't act so surprised. J. Edgar Hoover used to wear a dress.
Corky: Just tell me why, Brick.
Agent Brick Davis: I don't know. I suppose it made him feel sexy.
Corky: Not Hoover, You.

Before and After Corky.
27 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

Corky Romano is I believe a good movie. Well of course not a good movie in terms of story line but good enough. The good thing about this movie is the hilarious parts. Honestly I don't know Chris Kattan before I watched this movie. I just saw it's poster on a mall and I decided to watch. Why? I don't know why did I watched this movie, but to tell you, I really had a great time laughing all by myself inside that cinema. That's the time when the movie CORKY ROMANO became one of my all time favorite comedy.

Sometimes the story seems nonsense. But that's the beauty of it. This movie never makes you think of anything. It just makes you laugh. I recommended this movie to a friend of mine and he liked it as well. Although we have the same reaction.... The story is not impressive. 4/10 for story.. But who cares? This movie just made my day..

Good choice if you want to relax and just laugh for an hour and a half.
