Kentucky Friend Movie was an all time favorite for me and my teenage friends about ten years ago. We must have watched that movie about fifty times in twenty five days. It wasn't just the explicit nudity that drew us either, we had my friend's brother's smuggled porn for that, it was the slapstick humor that just doesn't let up. With all that history, I couldn't help but get a little teary eyed when I watched "Catholic High School Girls in Trouble" or saw Big Jim Suede smash though the wall during the Joy of Sex record. Kentucky Fried Movie is a collection of skits, a lot like a hard R version of Saturday Night Live back when it was funny. It is done by Enter the Dragon, but it is funny even if you haven't. The DVD is a non 16x9 enhanced transfer with only a mono soundtrack, but it is hard to even visualize this with anything better. It does a fair job representing the original and looks a lot better than the 100 run VHS tape I used to have. Kentucky Fried Movie lets us fondly remember how life used to be back in the mid 80s. You didn't have to worry about having breasts in the first three minutes of a film back then, and you didn't mind ending almost exactly the same way. While some may think the humor is a bit dated, frankly, that was when humor was humor and not the current day softened version. Give it a watch.
