Unbelievably Silly & A Lot Of Fun To Watch
30 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I liked the premise of this: an actor dressed as a mummy-like "Creature From the Black Lagoon," racing out to a hospital to see his wife deliver their first kid, not stopping to change his ludicrous outfit.

This episode is unbelievably silly but that's what makes it fun. It is SO preposterous you just have to laugh out loud in a number of spots.

The man has car trouble, stops at this out-of- the-way hillbilly gas station where the guy in the store just happens to be watching a mummy movie and our hero does everything the guy on the screen does! It gets worse....far worse....as the story turns into a Frankenstein parody. Overall, there were so many wild scenes and stupid things that all I could do was shake my head....and laugh.
