The Kentucky Fried Movie

Critics Consensus

The now obscure pop culture references and spoofed commercials add to Kentucky Fried Movies anarchic, anything-goes spirit and wit.

Audience Reviews for The Kentucky Fried Movie

  • Jan 07, 2012
    Written by the ZAZ Team (Airplane! The Naked Gun, etc) and directed by John Landis (National Lampoon's Animal House, The Blues Brothers, etc), this is one of, if not the earliest spoof film. There's not really much of a plot, as this is more of an anthology of mostly unconnected sketches that parody various television programs, commercials, and different films, namely of the exploitation and educational varieties. There's also a hilarious jab at cinematic gimmicks, where a man goes to a movie being shown in "feel around"...which results in him being physically accosted by an usher. The film is very politically incorrect, rude, stupid, silly, and goofy, but I mostly had a good time with it. A lot of it is pretty smart with the satire, and really dead on, but then there's a fair amount that just left me feeling kinda "meh", despite a sly grin on my face. I think the biggest issue here is that the film, though clever and well done, is quite dated, and some of the jokes are no longer as effective thanks to the passage of time, with audiences growing more accustomed to raunch. All in all though, it is enjoyable, but not nearly as groundbreaking as later stuff like Airplane! That being said, I must give special praise to the level of detail and care that went into the Kung fu parody, as well as the fact that the film features a midget dressed in a clown suit whipping half naked Catholic schoolgirls chained up in a dungeon. If this sounds like your thing, then give it a shot.
