The Kentucky Fried Movie

Before hitting it big with Animal House, John Landis helmed the riotously funny sketch comedy anthology film The Kentucky Fried Movie. Written by the Zucker/Abrahams/Zucker team that would go on to great success of their own with Airplane!, the movie consists of fake news broadcasts, short commercial parodies, trailers for faux exploitation films and a centerpiece spoof of Bruce Lee movies. The laugh a minute pace never lets up as these comedy masters serve up a plethora of jokes, many that stick-in-the-muds might find juvenile or crude, but all gut bustingly funny!

“The comedy stems from the way the cast and crew replicates, with uncanny precision, the look and tone of the pop culture they’re mocking, and then upends it with flashes of goofiness and bald truth.” – Noel Murray, The Dissolve
