MPAA Rating:


Even though it's two decades old, The Kentucky Fried Movie is still a shocker. David Zucker, Jim Abrahams, and Jerry Zucker hit the big-time with this off-the-wall hit. KFM is a collection of sketches that feel like an uncensored episode of "Saturday Night Live". Since nothing is on the screen for any length of time, there's little opportunity to be bored. It's not as packed with jokes as their later efforts like Airplane!, but most hit their mark. It's a demonstration of some of the humor to which they'd eventually build. There is plenty of gratuitous sex used to great comedic effect and a general attempt to offend everyone possible. The parody of Enter the Dragon is wonderful. Be prepared for extreme zaniness and a shock to your sensibilities, but also prepare to laugh.
