In Los Angeles, three guys with limited social lives hatch a plan to meet women: they'll issue a casting call for an independent film, interview actresses, and ask out the ones who interest them. Glenn is a nerd, but he has the office. Sherman has the idea - he's a hound, happy to lie, eager to meet and bed as many women as he can fool. Richie, who owns the camera, hopes to meet his true love. Within a few days, he's fallen for Marina Dell, new in town, with a boyfriend back east; Glenn is ga-ga for Laurel, and Sherman can't say no to the eager and adventurous Nikita. But how long can they sustain the fiction, and what about real feelings? Written by
Yet another National Lampoon disaster ..............
It has been my experience that 9 out of 10 National Lampoon movies are unwatchable, and while "National Lampoon Cattle Call" is far from the worst, it is still bad. Aside from the classic "Vacation", "Animal House", and "Van Wilder", and the marginal "Deadly Sins" and "Gold Diggers", everything else has been simply awful, including "Cattle Call". This is essentially a one joke movie, and the joke is both unoriginal, redundant, and boring. Most of the crude efforts for a laugh totally misfire, and the overly simplistic script simply has nowhere to go. The entire film seems tired from beginning to end. Throw in the towel early, because essentially you will not miss anything you haven't seen before. - MERK
