A must-see for Corky and the Juice Pigs fans
10 July 2004 | by kacee4See all my reviews

This short comedy is very surreal, silly, and strange. It is thus a perfect vehicle for Corky and the Juice Pigs. If you like their style of humour, you will love this movie!

After opening with some cute sidewalk-chalk credits, the movie takes a few minutes to really get going. The initial scene feels a bit forced, but once Cullen, Nichol, and Neale are allowed to shine through their own antics, the bizarre humour will tickle the funny bone of any Corky fan.

The jokes range from base (such as Cullen mouthing that the barber has just farted) to cute (plenty of sound-effect gags) to intellectual (Shakespeare and existentialism). There are also some clips from the band's debut album, plus a brief selection of their strange kimono-clad martial arts bit from their stage act.

Let's be clear: this isn't exactly the most polished film you'll ever see. There are some rough edits, continuity errors (particularly in a scene late in the movie where it's obvious by lighting changes and a different hair style on Phil that the takes were done on different days), and a couple of the supporting actors are weak. This isn't Academy Award material. But it's good, campy fun, and I recommend it to anyone who gets a chance to see it. It's rare, so take any chance you get!
