Jonathan Demme passed away last month so we decided why not honor him by doing a bastardization of one of his most brilliant pieces of art.
The film was directed, written produced and starred Italian dime store Leslie Nielsen Ezio Greggio. He narrates the whole movie so get ready to not understand most of it not that it matters because it's mostly nonsense anyways.
Where to start on this movie. It’s a parody of psycho and Silence of the lambs although a little bit more psycho. This film feels more relevant today. Im sort of amazed it hasn't had a major resurgence with the alt-right community. I mean it has everything the rabid trump supporters and conservatives love. Starting with Hillary Clinton getting arrested. Lock her up lock her up.
Then we get some tasteful transgender jokes about gender identity...scary. That’s not all, black men beating up cops, jokes about flint michigan, carbon taxing a whole lot of sexual assault and don't forget black face. John Astin, I thought I knew you.
There are a few clever things that made us not rate it a full on zero percent. I guess if you have 30 jokes a minute every hour a couple have to hit. Some of the best include the telephone split screen gag, the inner monologue but from a diegetic source.
They also for some reason think that just referencing movie titles should be in place of a joke.This movie also has an amazing array of cameos by great directors.
They also have a completely unnecessary star wars cantina scene.
Its pretty much right in the middle between the classics of Zucker brothers and mel brooks and the awful movie movies. Sitting with Spy Hard and Jane Austen's Mafia.
Overall we gave it a 32%
