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

It's easy to spoof cliches; it's something else again to string them together with the insight into narrative structure these boys evidence.
The range of its satire and comedy, as displayed in 22 segments running from a minute or two up to 30 minutes, is fairly narrow.
The Kentucky Fried Movie boasts excellent production values and some genuine wit, though a few of the sketches are tasteless.
Most of the jokes still hold up excellently even today and with spoof commercials and trailers so popular these days, especially today, The Kentucky Fried Movie proves to be both hilarious and curiously prescient.
The Kentucky Fried Movie misses as often as it hits, but when the writers and Landis arrive at a great idea ... it's like watching an entire fruitful comic perspective being spawned.
Saturday Night Live had been doing the same thing, only better, on TV for two years prior to this... and Monty Python had been doing something far more subversive and positively genius with their Flying Circus for nearly a decade prior...
As many hits as misses, but the hits are zingers!
Apesar de ter inaugurado um novo gênero de comédia, o filme é prejudicado justamente pelo desgaste provocado por suas dezenas de sucessores - mas, mesmo assim, ainda faz rir.
A quintessential midnight movie classic. Raunchy 70's humor, softcore sex, and the best Bruce Lee parody ever. Deep battered and mmm mmm good!
The kung-fu segment is a classic
A hodgepodge of skits, some of which are better then others. It hasn't dated very well, but if you love the Airplane movies, this should make you laugh a bit every now and then.
When the jokes do land (and many of them do), it is one of the funniest movies available.
