Unlike the pathetic protagonists of many a smart dumb comedy, Corky never becomes sympathetic, and without this fundamental irony the movie doesn't have a leg to stand on.

Although Corky Romano is not based on a Saturday Night Live sketch, it is still as dismal.

Unfortunately, keeping Kattan in the forefront is also one of the main problems with the film.

Chris Kattan should have been in silent comedy. He has the Silly Putty face of those old slapstick stars, and a sing-song, splitting-headache vox box that would have played much better in the silents.

Will somebody please offer Peter Falk a decent role? This 'crotchety old geezer' gig is getting tiresome.

Astonishingly unoriginal, unevenly paced and often just plain dumb, this is one comedy that could easily be reclassified as a tragedy -- particularly for Kattan.

Stick with the website.

...his new FBI name is Corky Pissant, pronounced just the way it sounds, and the rest of the humor in the movie doesn't get any better.

...has a wacky side, but the wackiness does not tread outside the boundaries of the story.

The film is merely a myopic footnote that cannot match its own nonsensical raucous tone.

There's a difference between showmanship and showing off, and Kattan has not yet learned that.

It's surprising some of the silliness actually elicits laughter. Not terribly surprising, however, is that there's not enough of that laughter.

How can you describe a movie that fails so completely in every possible way, its mere existence leaves you flummoxed?

Don't see this if you respect anyone in the cast or comedy in general.

From exposition to denouement, Corky Romano is paint-by-numbers filmmaking of the highest (or lowest) order.
