Storyline

The makers of this comedy took the Frank Capra masterpiece, It's a Wonderful Life (1946) and re-edited it and totally re-did the dialogue and sound effects. For example, in this version, the druggist Mr. Gower, sells cocaine to the Bailey family; the hero, George Bailey, is sick of doing the film and wants to star in action films; his brother, Harry, has a drug addiction and is trying to jump Annie the maid.

Hilarious Edit of a Christmas Classic!
14 December 2006 | by (Cobleskill, New York) – See all my reviews

From the creators of on of the greatest sketch shows of all times, Upright Citizens Brigade, comes Escape From it a Wonderful life. This is hilarious! A lot of the points about this movie being played way too much is always something I thought of and it grated on me! God how many times can they play that god damn sappy movie and in this TV mini-movie George Bailey agrees. Replacing the voices of the main characters from the movie are voiced by Jay Martel (George Bailey) and the UCB. I just loved the fact that Bailey wanted to get out of the movie and how well the soundtrack they recorded fit in the movie just really perfect and a very good attempt at showing how lame TV producers truly are, Really I hope more people could find this I bet everyone would find it funny.
