Version of Corky Romano Reviewed: Touchstone Entertainment Widescreen DVD, 2003
ABOUT THE FILM
The Premise: Corky Romano (Chris Kattan) is the black sheep son in a dysfunctional, quirky mafia family. He's not a fan of the family business--he's much more concerned with animals (he's an assistant veterinarian), helping people, and spreading good cheer and hugs (think of a less "flamboyant" version of Richard Simmons). Because of this, after his mother passed away, his father (Peter Falk) and brothers (Peter Berg and Chris Penn) disowned him. However, when the family business is threatened by an informant working with the FBI, they need someone whom they can trust, but who isn't a known link to the family, to pose as an FBI agent and find out what they know and how they know it. Corky is unwillingly recruited for the job.
Facts And Assessments To Help You Decide Whether You Might Like This Film:
This is a fish-out-of-water comedy, and more specifically, would fit into a "Saturday Night Live comedy" genre. The Saturday Night Live comedy genre, with Kattan being the formal link to Saturday Night Live here, usually plays something like a film-length skit from the show, with more expensive production values, and a more formally structured plot.

Corky Romano has got to be one of the best movies EVER!!! It is doesn't drrraaaagggg on like other movies do, so it's easy to watch over and over again without getting bored. Plus, it's hilarious without being crude like you may find in other comedies. I've seen this movie 4 complete times being said on 3/22/2004, but by the time you're reading this, it may be twice as many! I've memorized entire scenes, even a chapter! Corky is relativly family friendly, though some things some people might find inappropriate for younger people, primarily the swear words. Pops Romano, a mafia father is having charges pressed against him, so he sends his son, Corky, to go undercover as an FBI Agent and destroy all evidence against him. His new fake name is Corky Pissant, which he claims is pronounced "pea-sont," and his fake resumé says he knows five different languages, has an olympic gold medal for sharpshooting, and is a black belt in some fighting style. Now Corky has to try and get the evidence while trying to live up to his fake resumé. The movie takes place over only 3 days or so, so it is fast-paced. Overall, "Corky Romano" is a fun movie to watch and I would recommend it to anyone.

I caught this movie today on HBO, didn't rem what it was about, but I like Kattan, so I watched it. I have not laughed this hard in years, I was in tears, especially when he gets high from the Coke,(you would swear he was really high) that scene is an instant classic in my mind forever!! Whenever I think about it, I laugh outloud. I missed the last 15min, had to leave for work, but will def. be buying this for my collection.

Chris Kattan always gives me belly aching laughter everytime I watch this movie. The guy's a riot. That scene where Corky was high with the cocaine and had a short jittery talk with a kindergarten class was just hilarious. The plot is just senselessly funny. If you haven't laughed for a long time this is a guaranteed cure. The soundtrack rocks! Excellent replay value!

Look, I heard the negative reviews about this movie and was skeptical about seeing it but Im glad I caved in and finally saw it because it was actually funny. Chris Kattan is a funny guy and should have gave him the benefit of the doubt that he could have made this movie work.

Corky Romano is a pet store owner(Chris Kattan) is sent to retrieve papers from the police office that could get his father "Pops"(played by Peter Falk)indicted. He is mistaken for an FBI agent and is asked to be their go-to-guy and his quest to retrieve the evidence becomes more difficult.

Chris Kattan naturally gets all the laughs as the dopey but likable Corky. Outside of him you might get some laughs from Peter Falk and Richard Roundtree who plays a chief that really believes that Corky is a great FBI agent even though his ineptness shows. The scene where Corky gets a face full of coke and has to do a speech after wards is too funny for words. I had to take off a star because some of the jokes fall flat like the constant reminder that Paulie is gay or that Peter cant read but other than that this movie had me laughing most of the time.

Corky Romano is a funny comedy that needs to be given a chance. Dont let the negative reviews dissuade you. Take it upon yourself to find out if its good or not.

If you don't like Chris Kattan, you shouldn't even be reading this. If you like Chris Kattan, you will probably like this movie. Chris is perky, energetic, adorable, and rather silly in this movie ... everything you'd expect from him really. The plot is better than most would probably like to admit. Yet, this movie still is not a stand-out. Perhaps it's too perky, energetic, etc. I can't put my finger on what was missing or what was saturating in this movie that prevented it from being a great comedy, but it just wasn't. But again, it wasn't bad either -- worth a watch or a rental, but maybe not a purchase.
As you've probably deduced from the previews, Chris' character is a bubbly and likeable, albeit clutzy, veterinarian who happens to be part of a mob family. This is the obvious irony and source of most of the humor in the movie. Chris feigns FBI agent for most of the movie, which is as funny as it is unbelievable. There is the mandatory love interest who is also an FBI agent. And Chris of course learns a thing or two along the way. There's nothing particularly shocking or innovative in this movie but it does generally do its job -- it makes you laugh ... or at least chuckle.
