Synopsis


The Kentucky Fried Movie
Comedy writers David and Jerry Zucker and Jim Abrahams of Airplane and The Naked Gun fame got their start at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, when they formed a theatrical group known as The Kentucky Fried Theater. The Kentucky Fried Movie is based on the KFT's gag-filled theatrical skits. Including well-known stars such as Bill Bixby, Donald Sutherland, Tony Dow, George Lazenby and Henry Gibson, the film has over 22 different segments of varying lengths. Some are seconds long. Longer segments include such highlights as: "Zinc Oxide," which spoofs school educational films; "Cleopatra Schwartz," a spoof of female blaxploitation action films, whose heroine is married to a rabbi; "Sex Record," which depicts a couple who are attempting to follow the step-by-step instructions of a how-to-do-it record; "Catholic High School Girls In Trouble," and "A Fistful of Yen," (the longest episode), which is an elaborate spoof of martial-arts films. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

    Great Comedy

    If you are sick of spoof movies, like Date Movie, and Epic Movie, then you should see this movie, this is how spoof movies should be, the movie is a collection of hilarious sketches, and spoofs of movies and movie trailers, such as Bruce Lee movies and the 70's explotation movies, it might be somewhat dated for the younger crowd, this movie was made in the 1970's. The movie was the inspiration for Amazon Women on the Moon, which was made in the mid 1980's, overall there is something in the KFM that will make you laugh.

    One of the classic movies of my childhood, already had it on DVD but couldn't pass up the bluray release. Brings back memories of when we first got cable and I saw this on HBO.

    This movie was very funny. The Zucker brothers co wrote this movie. The are the people who gave up Airplane. The skids were very funny. Great buy for $6.99
