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

The attorneys in the "Courtroom" sketch were named Hornung and Taylor. Paul Hornung and Jim Taylor were the starting running backs for the Green Bay Packers in the late 1950s and early 1960s. See more »
When Joyce Wilson gives the astrological report in the "A.M. Today" segment, the padding where the arrow lands is visible. The same thing happens when Ron Butler gives his report about the teachers' strike. See more »
The popcorn you are eating has been pissed in. Film at eleven.

The credits state that the cast is listed in order of appearance - and then starts with Cleopatra Schwarz (who appears about 2/3rds of the way through the film)! 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.

Mindless fun and insanity
Incredibly funny movie that gets off to a slow start, but once you stick with it, it will probably be one of the funnier movies you will ever see. Especially if you grew up in the 1970s. This movie played at our college and the next day the theater was required by the dean's office to issue an apology in the college paper. This movie has a lot of sexual content that ticked somebody off, I guess. This would make an excellent double feature with the earlier "Groove Tube" so you can see just what Saturday Night Live and other shows like that were trying to accomplish. 1970s adult film star Uschi Digart does a cameo during a shower scene that will not soon be forgotten once seen. Many, many cameos to look for including Donald Sutherland, Bill Bixby and on and on. The highlight of the movie is a mini-film called "A Fistful of Yen" which is a spot-on parody of Bruce Lee's "Enter The Dragon". Imagine Bruce Lee getting the treatment by the people behind "Airplane" and you get the idea. If you are in a silly mood this si a movie worth getting. Being that it was made in the 1970s, I suppose being stoned would make this movie an absolute laugh-riot.
