Madcap spoof, a collection of comedy skits includes the Kung-Fu parody, "A Fistful Of Yen" and "Catholic School Girls In Trouble." Enjoy the future of movie-going with the "Feel-A-Round" theater experience. See a notable and highly respected actor as the clumsiest waiter in motion picture history. Watch such character as Cleopatra Schwartz and Big Jim Slade tickle your funny bone until it has to be removed surgically!Written by

When Paul Burmaster interviews Claude Lamont, the gag is that the roving boom mic picks up sounds that it otherwise wouldn't (heart beats and the like). But while the moving mic picks up these other noises, the voice levels of the actors do not vary. We know that within the sketch they are not otherwise miked because when the mic goes into the water pitcher their voices gurgle. See more »
The popcorn you are eating has been pissed in. Film at eleven.

Before the credits start, there is a short bit with the TV anchorman saying "The popcorn you're eating has been pissed in, film at eleven". For the TV version, this is replaced with "I'm not wearing any pants, film at 11" See more »
A version aired on Comedy Central (and perhaps on other channels) features a small variety of edits:
The 'Cleopatra Schwartz' sequence is censored heavily for language and nudity
During the closing sequence (where the teenagers are having sex on the couch, and the news crew is watching), the camera zoom is altered several times so that nothing but the teens' faces show. The zooms are awkward, and blatantly added.
The entirety of the 'Catholic School Girls In Trouble' scene is missing. It is listed in the credits, however.
Though this movie has absolutely nothing to it, its considered a great movie on my part.
Not only did this movie make me burst a gut, but its a great satire of, well, everything. It's the remedy to any tear-jerker and also a great movie to watch when there's, "just nothing on that night", sit through it, have some laughs, and enjoy it. There's nothing better to it.
Of course, the main skit, "A fistful of yen" was absolute genius. The moves, and the way they were all made, was absolute prodegetic. I praise David and Jerry Zucker for this, and again, John Landis continues to make great movies. This, for one, is probably in his best other than "Animal House" and "The Blues Brothers".
Serve up the chicken, because this movie is going to eat your heart out!
