It all depends on how much weight you'll lay on plot or a decent story. If you don't mind and can get into the mindset of a sort of Saturday Night Live sketch sort of thing, you may be able to really enjoy this (as I have read another reviewer here did). But if you actually want a coherent story you shouldn't even bother.
Starting off with a Godfather scene is either genius comedy (if you like the way they play it out) or annoying. Actually Zootopia did a far better job in spoofing Godfather (it's animated and it's animals, but watch and you'll see what I mean). The whole thing still is based on historic incidents, though I don't mean ET by Spielberg of course. But influences come from many sources and you'll either like this or think of it as waste of time
