Storyline

Washed up actor Don Knotts shows up on the back lot of Universal Studios in Hollywood, California in hopes of landing a role in the new Disney movie, Newsies. Unfortunately director Kenny Ortega quickly dismisses Mr. Knotts and has him thrown off the lot. Mr. Knotts is quite upset by the turn of events, so decides to go on a killing spree, believing that if he can't have a role in the movie no one can. He knocks off one newsie after the next, each in a different and unique way. Written by Anonymous

Delightful fun from your friendly neighborhood Newsies!
26 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So you can't get enough of the Newsies huh. Well, buckle up kids this is not your family Disney movie! Filled with curse words, sexual innuendos and extreme violence. I would give it a rating of at LEAST PG13. Join our adorable newsie Specs, played by Mark David, as he transforms into a jealous and ruthless Don Knotts who vows to destroy the Newsies if it's that last thing he does. Follow him as he goes on a killing rampage, try to keep up with him and figure out who he will strike next.

Basically it's the type of movie that the neighborhood boys tend to make around the ages of 15 to 18 when they get bored. But truly it is brilliant. The editing, the sound, even the plot! So if you just can't get enough of your Newsies and you are able to hear an F word or two... Go watch it!
