A committee investigating TV's first uncensored network examines a typical day's programming, which includes shows, commercials, news programs, you name it. What they discover will surely crack you up! This outrageous and irreverent spoof of television launched the careers of some of the greatest comedians of all time.Written by
In the early 1970's, an American margarine company convinced a fancy French restaurant to prepare two identical dishes, one made with their margarine and the other made with real butter, and offer both dishes to their customers for comparison. Cameras recorded the customers sampling the dishes and saying, "No difference"; these were shown in American commercials for the margarine. This is the inspiration for the blindfolded French chef who appears repeatedly in the film, saying "NO DEE-FRAWNCE!" in a thick and phony French accent. See more »

The original theatrical release featured the animated cartoon/music video for Cheech & Chong's "Basketball Jones" as an added short before the film. The cartoon was removed from subsequent reissue prints. See more »
Stephen Feinberg (Played the Proctologist and was one of the writers)
Stephen Feinberg, who Played the Proctologist and was one of the writers of the movie, passed away in early 2006. I met Steve in Portland in 1993, it was a year latter when he told me that he had been a writer in Hollywood years earlier, working mostly on TV promos. He asked me not to see 'Tunnel Vision', but it was too late, I had seen it already! Actually I had seen it years before, when it was released. At that time I didn't think it was that bad a movie. However seeing it as an adult my opinion was somewhat different. Yes is is a bit puerile as well as dated. Steve admitted it was not a very good movie. That said he was just a little proud of 'The Proctologist' sketch.
