More comedy than I expected. The one liners were hilarious. It had its stupid parts, but so stupid you had to laugh at the stupidity.
Incredibly funny (by TyC)
WARNING: includes info about a scene in the movie. Do not read if you don't want to know what happens.I thought this movie was incredibly funny, especially the "Run, Florist, Run!" bit. When we saw that bit, everyone in the room burst out laughing and couldn't stop for about 5 minutes. I also loved the beginning explosion scene when the opening credits are appearing. Great movie.
Out-Nielsens Nielsen.... (by screamer-13)
Woohoo! This movie is H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S !!! Prepare to laugh, and then laugh some more, and leave some room for a double portion of laughter with added laughs! Lloyd Bridges out-Nielsens Nielsen - even better than the classic Spy Hard!Then again, you might hate this kind of thing, but what do I care about you?
Kudos For Godfather Spoof (by ccthemovieman-1)
Here's a very funny spoof on The Godfather story. This is a Leslie Nielsen-type silly parody, except the late Lloyd Bridges played the lead role instead Nielson.Actually Jay Mohr was more of the lead actor in here, narrating the film and taking Al Pacino's Godfather role while Christina Applegate took Diane Keaton's character. There are a number of laugh-out-loud lines in this movie and a number of overdone slapstick scenes. As with any comedy in which the material comes at you at a rapid pace see the Marx Brothers films from 70 years ago to see some of the origins of comedic <more>
mayhem , you get a lot funny and not-so-funny. They come at you so fast you can hardly keep up. I found that there were a lot of funny lines written on background buildings, street signs, etc. on this film. You almost have to freeze-frame some scenes to "read" all the jokes, much less hear them.This movie did do something that Hollywood films rarely have done: poke fun at a Democrat. Usually, the cheap shots are reserved for Republcians Nixon, Gingrich, Reagan, Bush, etc but here we have the famous "But I never had sex with that woman!" line delivered in a obvious reference. Well, good for them. About time the Liberals were recipients of a cheap shot or two. It only happens about once every 25 years in films. So, I give this film points for being "fair and balanced."Also points should be awarded for having several actors from the actual Godfather films make appearances here, too. The film was dedicated "in loving memory" to Bridges, so I assume this was his last movie. Well, he certainly went out with a laugh.
Side splittingly funny in places (by Jonathan-Wilkins)
Mafia! much like Hotshots and Airplane is very very funny..... The pacing of the film is such that you never wait too long for the next big laugh to come along. Lloyd Bridges is excellent again as he was in Hotshots play Vincenzo Cortino, head of the mafia, whose two sons, Joey and Anthoney are vying for control of the mob now that their father is getting old. Joey is hilarious! There are a few scenes from this movie I just have to think of to burst out laughing the funeral Scene is the funniest thing EVER on film . I'm actually laughing hard as I type this.......Anyway, anyone who <more>
is a fan of Hot shots, Airplane and Naked Gun will enjoy this movie immensely.
This is another spoof which cracked my the heck up. Im sure nobody else would really enjoy the movie as much as i did. Especially if youre a diehardcore fan of the godfather series and every mobster movie ever made. This movie totally make fun of every one of those movies. I think spoofs are really funny. I guess i like thos stupid movies but i thought this one was one of the best unfortunetly nobody else really did. It doesnt really matter a long as i liked it. I wouldnt recommend this movie to any mobster movie fans unless youre really in the mood for a funny mobster movie. If youre a Lloyd <more>
Bridges fan i would definitetly rent this one for it was his last film.
