Plot: A series of short, highly irreverent, and often tasteless skits. Runtime: 83 mins Release Date: 10 Aug 1977
The writers of Airplane! honed their comedic edge a few years earlier putting this smorgasboard together. Film is a Firesign Theatre-esque "comedy anthology", a group of generally good comedy skits centered around a very funny martial arts take-off. Ages rather well despite being frequently copied. The persons responsible for this movie have my gratitude.
Well Fried (by Filmcritic624)
Though this movie has absolutely nothing to it, its considered a great movie on my part.Not only did this movie make me burst a gut, but its a great satire of, well, everything. It's the remedy to any tear-jerker and also a great movie to watch when there's, "just nothing on that night", sit through it, have some laughs, and enjoy it. There's nothing better to it.Of course, the main skit, "A fistful of yen" was absolute genius. The moves, and the way they were all made, was absolute prodegetic. I praise David and Jerry Zucker for this, and again, John Landis <more>
continues to make great movies. This, for one, is probably in his best other than "Animal House" and "The Blues Brothers".Serve up the chicken, because this movie is going to eat your heart out!
This movie was like the Holy Grail of DVDs for me; I couldn't find it for the longest time. Finally I just picked it up off E-Bay which I should have done from the start, of course and watched it for the first time in years last night.In terms of laughs per minute, this one is a strong contender for funniest movie of all time. Written by Zucker Abraham and Zucker, directed by John Landis, and produced by Samuel L Bronkowitz just kidding , "The Kentucky Fried Movie" is really nothing more than a collection of skits, barely connected by the convention that they're all <more>
things you might see on TV or at the movies . But, oh, the skits. Let's just say that no single episode of "Saturday Night Live" was ever this funny.Best of the bunch is the movie's centerpiece, "A Fistful of Yen", a dead-on parody of kung fu action movies a la "Enter The Dragon". In this bit, the longest in the film, a Bruce Lee type named Loo has to infiltrate a mountain fortress run by the villainous Dr. Klahn, who is building an army of extraordinary magnitude. The martial arts scenes are hilarious; it may be the most staged-looking fighting of all time. Beginning with Loo training other fighters "What was that? This is not a chawade. We need total concen-TWAY-tion," he yells at one student and ending with Loo finally going home in a completely out-of-left-field ending having nothing to do with the previous action but seeming somehow fitting anyway , the slapstick jokes come fast and furious, even parodying "The Dating Game" at one point. This is a direct precursor to ZAZ's later movies like "Airplane!" and "The Naked Gun".Then there's the incredible "Catholic High School Girls in Trouble", which aims to parody 70s porno flicks "More shocking than 'Behind the Green Door'... Never before has the beauty of the sexual act been so crassly exploited!" the announcer screams. To get an idea of the kind of humor seen here, picture a hot chick approaching a loser and saying in a breathy voice "Show me your nuts!" and the guy proceeding to start acting like a total loon. In "United Appeal for the Dead" Henry Gibson speaks at great length about death, the number one killer in the United States, and what his group can do to help a loved one who has died lead a normal life. "That's Armageddon" features George Lazenby and parodies every Irwin Allen disaster flick made. A young man and woman discover the pleasures of sex through an instructional record in "Sex Record", and "Courtroom" is a hilarious parody of courtroom melodramas featuring Wally the real Tony Dow and the Beav Jerry Zucker mugging it up in place of Jerry Mathers as observers. The movie begins and ends with two news-themed skits, "AM Today" and the racy "Eyewitness News", in which the newscasters watch a couple with the TV on having sex. And there's much more."The Kentucky Fried Movie" is not for all tastes; I've known people who have watched it and just said "This is stupid." It is, indeed, stupid, but within the confines of the genre, it's one of the best. You'll laugh at the stupid jokes and stupid puns and stupid lines and stupid stunts all the way through if you like this sort of thing. The movie is very clever in how it packs the laughs.
A tasteless comedy of extraordinary magnitude!! (by lauraeileen894)
"Kentucky Fried Movie" is tasteless, unsophisticated, and decidedly sophomoric... and one of the most hilarious films ever made! A string of politically incorrect segments made by the creators of "Airplane!" and "The Naked Gun", "KFM" is an "R"-rated romp that today, nearly 30 years after its release, would be too shocking to even warrant the dreaded "NC-17" rating. Forget those unfunny amateurs Broken Lizard or the overrated Farrelly Brothers. We're talking naked breasts, oral sex, racial slurs, violence... and yet each segment <more>
leaves you delirious from not only laughter but disbelief at the fact that the Zuckers actually go away with all this. I've discovered that it really takes a certain kind of innocence to make a movie like "KFM", a naive belief that people will simply laugh at the crude spectacle of it all. Segments include a wholesome couple listening to a 1950s style "how-to" record on foreplay wait till you see what the record comes equipped with , a thrill seeker whose trademark stunt is going to a crowd of black men and yelling out the N-word how bold is this scene? No one has dared imitate it since , and a political debate between two analysts that ends with one of them cheerfully telling the other to "blow it out your a**" and giving them the finger. The highlight is the mini-movie within the movie, "A Fistful of Yen". A parody of all the Bruce Lee films, its hero, Loo, fights the evil Klahn, a one-armed criminal mastermind with a fondness for the phrase "extraordinary magnitude". It also pokes fun at the endless fights from the Lee films, as well as the characters' fractured English little trivia, the actors really were Asian and spoke poor English in real life, so it wasn't intentional on their parts The twist ending of "Yen" is one of the goofiest things you ever saw in your life. Despite the often offensive humor of "KFM", it's not a mean film by any means. No one is really safe from the wacky chaos it inflicts, and it's just hilarious. In our time of hand-wringing political correctness, "KFM" offers a cathartic experience of laughing out loud at our fears, prejudices, and, yes, stupidity. This is indeed a finger-lickin' good comedy.
There's something to be said for any movie that actually has a character named "Enormous Genitals". This is the first movie by the Zucker Brothers, the same geniuses that brought us Airplane, Top Secret and the Naked Gun movies. Haven't seen this yet? Pull up a nice comfy chair and get ready for 90 of the most hilarious minutes of film you can find. Cleopatra Schwartz is a riot, A Fistful Of Yen is the best spoof of Enter The Dragon or any Kung Fu film ever. The mock commercials are funny too. Anybody with Attention Deficit Disorder like me, this is the movie for you. It <more>
never stops moving, not for a minute. Henry Gibson's bit roll in this will have you laughing for days. But it's Samuel L. Bronkowitz's presentation of Catholic High School Girls In Trouble that will sit in you the longest. Best line: "Show me your/you're nuts! They certainly have.
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.
Tasteless, juvenile and very funny (by preppy-3)
A bunch of skits spoofing TV shows, commercials, movies, previews etc etc. There's also a long dead on target spoof of "Enter the Dragon" called "A Fistful of Yen". The film is very 70s--some of the references won't make any sense to anyone born after 1977. Also much of the humor is exceptionally crude and there's a huge overabundance of gratuitious female nudity and fairly graphic sex. This film wouldn't be made today and would easily have gotten an NC-17 rating if it had. Still, the film is often hilarious--I laughed myself silly at some of the crudest <more>
humor possible. So, it's worth seeing, but if you're easily offended do NOT see it! Also where else can you see Bill Bixby, George Lazenby, Donald Sutherland and Henry Gibson in a film with the coming attractions of "Catholic High School Girls in Trouble"?
One of the Funniest films the Zucker brothers have to offer (by Quinoa1984)
John Landis' The Kentucky Fried Movie is great skit comedy to say the least . Written by the supergroup team of Z-A-Z Jerry Zucker, Jim Abrahams, David Zucker , this film is wild, crazy, and lots of funny entertainment. Included is Big Jim Slade, Catholic High School Girl in Trouble, and a long yet rewarding parody of Bruce Lee pictures. And John Landis brings these crazy scenes all together into one big cluster f**k of a good time. Great for fans of all comedy, even better for Landis or Z-A-Z fans.
this movie is a R-rated version of saturday night live (by jaws!)
most skits in this movie work, but there are more than a few that are just plan silly. the best are the catholic high school girls in trouble, the spoof of enter the dragon ,the skit of the guy going to the movies,the movie is shown in feel around,and the final skit at the end about the guy and the girl making out on the couch while listening to the news. the best is maybe a tie between the enter the dragon spoof and the guy going to the movies watching in feel around. it's very funny, but the zucker-brothers,and abrahams team have done better,and funnier movies before,but don't get <more>
me wrong this movie is very funny.i give this movie *** out of ****
