Storyline

Welcome to Butcher's Mill, Illinois, home to a meat-packing plant, a junk yard, and Buddy and Earl, two likable losers who crave the sweet smell of success. Earl is a simple man with a simple desire--to marry Pam, the only available girl in town. But she'll only give herself to a man who meets her strict criteria, including trailer-home ownership. And Earl's conniving boss at the meat-packing plant will do anything to win Pam's heart first. Buddy, on the other hand, wrongly fancies himself a master criminal, scheming big and failing big while avoiding both legitimate employment and his heartless parole officer. When Buddy hatches a brainless scheme to kidnap a corrupt U.S. Congressman for ransom, Earl sees it as his only hope to put a down payment on a trailer. But their prime score turns into a raw deal when the Congressman ends up dead, and his body in the meat-packing plant--accidentally chopped up, turned into bologna, and sent out to market. Unless they can round up all the bad ... Written by Michael J. Hirsch

Side-Splitting, hysterically funny.
18 August 2004 | by (Chicago, Illinios) – See all my reviews

These two junk yard gigolos get the idea to kidnap a politician for ransom in order to win the heart of a fair maiden. It's a comedy of

errors as anything that can go wrong-- does. The victim has a heart attack before they can execute their plan. These two bumbling idiots kidnap the wrong corpse and have to return it before they realize the real body has been ground into lunch meat. The heirs won't pay the ransom without a corpse which they need in order to collect their inheritance, so these losers set about re-creating a reasonable facsimile of the politician's body with slices of bologna in a bathtub. If this seems implausible, wait till you see what happens next. If you like laughs, this trip to "Butcher's Mill" is not to be missed!
