Still packs in the laughs at a non-stop rate...

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...

Some episodes are coarse and sadly unfunny.

It's easy to spoof cliches; it's something else again to string them together with the insight into narrative structure these boys evidence.

Great fun for an undemanding night out.

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.

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.
| Original Score: 4/5

A quintessential midnight movie classic. Raunchy 70's humor, softcore sex, and the best Bruce Lee parody ever. Deep battered and mmm mmm good!
| Original Score: 5/5

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.
| Original Score: 3/5

Tom Green wishes he was even a tenth as funny as this.

When the jokes do land (and many of them do), it is one of the funniest movies available.

The Kentucky Fried Movie boasts excellent production values and some genuine wit, though a few of the sketches are tasteless.

It's surprising, then, that The Kentucky Fried Movie can still inspire laughter at its naughtiness, and even more surprising that it might still be considered envelope-pushing.
