Director John Landis and writers Jim Abrahams, David Zucker & Jerry Zucker got themselves noticed with this film, which is entirely a series of Saturday Night Live style sketches, parodies and mock news bulletins. Some of the jokes are funnier than others, but many will say it's worth watching alone for the parody of Enter The Dragon about halfway through the running time. Enjoyment will almost certainly depend on your tolerance for the politically incorrect. Fast food entertainment, and I personally love it.
