From the people who brought you National Lampoon's Animal House and National Lampoon's Van Wilder comes a hilariously twisted look at today's hottest television phenomenon...REALITY TELEVISION. It's a compiliation of outrageous reality show episodes that never aired, sent by producers and directos to National Lampoon in response to their call for submissions earlier this year. Written by
I discovered this little oddity the other day while stumbling aimlessly amongst the aisles and wall racks at my local Blockbuster video store.
National Lampoon does its job pretty well here: they lampoon the whole "Reality TV" phenomenon under which many of us modern-day TV viewers are quite frankly suffocating.
This video is a fairly convincing attempt to portray what appears to be a mixed bag of segments from "Reality" TV shows that purportedly were actually made, but for various reasons (mainly legal) never aired on TV. The shows themselves are absurd beyond belief. Of course, that's part of the joke: how could anybody actually believe that reality TV-show concepts such as "Casting Couch", "The Whore", "The Amazing Racist" etc. ever be considered by any sane network executive? Yet the shows are convincingly-enough acted that frequently you will believe that what you are watching is REAL, and not an elaborate National Lampoon joke.
The video hits the mark in three areas: 1) it lampoons the whole recent genre of "reality TV" and does it quite well. 2) it is amusingly anti-P.C. without being too hateful. 3) a lot of it is actually really FUNNY, such as when a guy is challenged to shoplift items from a sex shop, and he is shown stuffing down his pants leg various sexual "devices" - some of which are... ahem... big and long.
Anyway, it's bad but good, and I'm glad I rented it. I must warn you though that it's NOT for the young or squeamish, as it contains lots of raw language and images of a naughty or disgusting nature. But do see it with your buddies in a frat or sorority party setting and you will prolly have some jolly good fun with it.
