Tediously lame and rightfully unknown farce, though I did at least chuckle a few times.

Oh boy. What to say about this so-called comedy. Well, to be fair, I didn't think it was going to be that great, but I never expected it to be as lame and boring as could be. The opening scene is kinda funny, but with minor exceptions, and that's using the term loosely, it's pretty much downhill from here.

Starring a cast you've never heard of and also directed and produced by people you've never heard of, Yellow Pages deals with this one guy who's this jack of all trades kind of guy who sets up ads for his made-up companies in the yellow pages. One of his fields is working as a detective, and one night, he gets hired by a mysterious person named Mr. X to retrieve a microchip and then gets mixed up with a wedding, tourists and various crazy events. Seriously, trying to describe what little plot this movie has is almost as big as a chore as watching the movie, and I actually sat through this from beginning to very end.

About the only other funny and good part of this movie are the scenes with actor Chris Ullman as Mr. X. Ullman seems to be the only likable actor in this flick and also seems to be the only one who's aware of what's going on in the movie. The rest of the cast just tries too hard. And don't even get me started on the lead actor. He has to be the lamest, most obnoxious, and most unlikeable lead I've ever had to see on-screen. As for Ullman, he deserves to be seen in more films, but not tripe like this.

The only big name involved in this is the composer, James B. Campbell, who is probably best known for composing Elvira: Mistress of the Dark (1988), along with serving as an orchestrator for many big-name films such as Predator (1987) and The Abyss (1989). Campbell must have not had a lot to work on here as his score is rather wasted and rushed. Campbell has not worked on a film since then and I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if this was the cause.

Released directly to DVD by Simitar in 1999, this film isn't really that well known, even in the digital age and hasn't even come close to being re-released on DVD as well. Frankly, I think that's for the best. To sum it all up, avoid at all costs, unless you have to have every spoof movie/farce ever created. 2/10, and that's being generous.

DVD Extras: A surprisingly bright and watchable full screen presentation, sort of a step up from other Simitar DVDs, along with trailers for Glitch! (1988) and The Naked Truth (1993), film facts, which you could easily look up on IMDb or AllMovie.com, and a biography on cult Greek filmmaker Nico Mastorakis, despite him having nothing to with this film aside from his company, Omega Entertainment, picking it up for distribution.
