First Family
Gilda Radner, Bob Newhart, and Madeline Kahn star in this comedy. The farce sends up an idiotic First Family in the persona of a bumbling president (Newhart), his semi-alcoholic wife (Kahn), and his oversexed daughter (Radner). Satirizing the artificial, formal speech of real-life First Families in television interviews, director Buck Henry carries this mode of speech into their private lives as well. The trio travel to an African country where the First Daughter is kidnapped and white Americans are traded as slaves in exchange for some special animal dung that is able to accelerate plant growth. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

    So so comedy from writer director Buck Henry (Heaven Can Wait). Gilda Radner steals the show as the "first" daughter. Slow moving with some mildly funny parts. Madeline Kahn is good, Radner hilarious-rest of the the cast and film merely ok.
