    Truly makes you laugh. At its best it recalls the animated antics of a Jerry Lewis escapade, the pratfall follies of a Buster Keaton flick and Rowan Atkinson's outsized physicality.

    The movie is so silly I found myself snickering a couple of times, just before slumping down in my seat in mortified embarrassment.

    Predictable and tiresome.
  4. It's bad enough that the lazy script substitutes goofy situations for actual gags, much of which falls flat under Rob Pritts' plodding direction, but Corky Romano finally sours in cynicism and hypocrisy.

    The only way sober adults will keep awake is wondering how the lead mobsters on "The Sopranos" -- who also are amateur film critics -- will rank the movie next year on HBO.

    As Corky, Mr. Kattan never finds an appealing perspective on his character. Sweetness is not this gifted comedian's strong suit, and in its place Mr. Kattan offers a desperate eagerness to please, a far less charming quality.
  7. Simply, the worst movie of a wretched year.

    This is one of the funniest movies to come out of SNL. I think the music perfectly captivates whats happening on screen.

    This movie was honestly SO FUNNY.... people shouldnt be looking to take the story seriously and everything, this movie was meant to make you laugh. This movie MADE ME LAUGH OUT TEARS.... so many funny scenes... holy this movie is my all time classic funny movie.... honestly. People who didnt like this movie honestly doesn't have a sense of humor or cant expand their ways of watching different type of films. If you pick up this movie, don't expect a Sopranos kind of thing... .just expect a comedy... that's the whole point. Expand

    The greatest worst movie ever! You will split your sides laughing if you lose yourself in the film and not get bogged down with the truth that it is a dumb movie. I give it an 8 for those who know how to enjoy dumb movies and a 2 for those who know movies. Expand

    I quickly got tired of all the punches in the groin and the fart jokes. Just simply not funny.
