I love the idiots on IMDb who post the movie plot synopsis as if they need to interpret a movie so anyone who watches it will know ahead of time what they are watching. For what purpose...? Understanding? Enjoyment? Scientific advancement?

Makes no sense.

If you want to comment on a movie, comment on what you got out of it, because movies ---like books, or any thing artful for that matter---- are purely subjective experiences.

I have no wish to explain the details of the plot of Windy City Heat. It would serve nothing useful for me to do so. It's got actors, a movie supposedly being filmed, funny plot developments, imagined and real betrayals, situational stuff, sophomoric humor.

And the whole thing is friggin' hilarious! This movie works extremely well as a comedy because you never know exactly where it's going to go, and even after it gets to where it has arrived you don't know if it's going to stay there, or why it got there in the first place. And you don't care.

It's friggin' hilarious!

Basically it's "The Three Stooges Meet Dumb and Dumber" in a Hollywood soundstage. None of it smacks of reality, yet it has that "I-know- people-this-stupid-so-it-seems-half-real" feel about it. I love this movie in all its crudity and ignorance. It truly is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen!! I couldn't help myself laughing at it. Or stop laughing after it was finished and I thought back to scenes.

But spare me the total BS of the reality of this 'prank' on Caravello--- -the whole movie is simply that---it's a movie.

Enjoy it! Tell your friends about it! They'll love you for it. A great comedy movie!!!
