|"The comedy isn't bad, it's
by Dennis Schwartz
rip-off of The Groove Tube (1974). Director and
co-writer/cinematographer and editor Jack M. Sell
("The Psychotronic Man")
offers a dreadful sex spoof of daily TV fare.
Tucker acts as the host introducing the
segments. The skits include a Phil Donahue goof, an
Eddie Murphy impersonation by someone who doesn't
remind me of the comedian, a slasher Santa, a
late night news spoof, a
female impersonator doing a terrible Liza
Minnelli impression while singing a bad
version of New York, New York,
and many more
unfunny skits. The comedy isn't bad, it's wretched.
What's accurate is the quote from the film, "This Movie is Sh*t."
