The Kentucky Fried Movie (1977)

Directed by: John Landis

Starring: Evan C. Kim, Bong Soo Han
Cameo: Bill Bixby, Donald Shutterland, Tony Dow, George Lazenby

Tagline: "This movie is totally out of control!"

"Newscaster: The popcorn you are eating has been pissed in."
"Narrator: Brutal! Savage! Beyond Perversion!"
"Pennington: This is Butkus, Klahn's bodyguard. He is tough and ruthless. This is Kwong, Klahn's chauffeur. He is rough and toothless."

I came over this film by accident and found out that David and Jerry Zucker along with Jim Abrahams had written this masterpiece. If you don't know them by name they are responsible for cult classics as: "Airplane", "Police Squad" and The Naked Gun films.
This film reminds me much of how Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez works today in their films, ironising b-movies and having scetches within the main feature film, only that "The Kentucky Fried Movie" was built on mainly scetches, some are more funny than others, and others are hilarious.
One of the spoofs in this film is based on Bruce Lee's "Enter The Fist".
If you like the kind of humor David Zucker & Co have, you will love this masterpiece.

I give it 7/10 pukes
