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

This was the second consecutive John Landis movie to feature a gorilla. One had been in Landis' first film, Schlock (1973). See more »
In the courtroom scene, the car was said to have been in the northbound lanes of U.S. highway 30, which actually runs east-to-west overall. However it does not run in a straight line, and some portions (the largest being about 40 miles paralleling the Columbia River in Oregon) do run north-south. See more »

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.
Countless Airplane and Police Squad and Hot Shots movies later, Kentucky Fried Movie is still the best Abrahams/Zucker collaboration. Rather then try to put a bunch of mini-parodies into a single overarcing theme like an airplane disaster flick, they just do...a bunch of parodies, each on its own. It seems like the "skit" movie is dead and long gone now, which is a shame, because I wouldn't mind seeing them take another shot at it. It's probably just as well they can't, though - some things just stand on their own.
