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!

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.

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.

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.

This movie is my guilty little secret. It's not a cinematic masterpiece, it's not some great cerebral experience. No, it's just an honestly funny movie.

From the first opening scene where Corky's driving his yellow convertible, I was laughing. I love that he's a member of this powerful mafia crime family, but that he just wants to be a veterinarian. It's one of those things that creates an automatic connection to the watcher... everyone wants to be brave enough to be their own person, even in the face of familial disapproval.

Anyways, Corky's father is under investigation by the FBI, but the rest of the family is too well known for them to go under cover and find out what the Feds know. So they call in Corky to be Agent Pissant, which he's happy to do because he loves his family and wants their love in return.

Hilarity ensues. There's a pretty girl. There's some slapstick moments that made me laugh until I cried a little. And basically, it's kind of a stupid movie that you can't help enjoying and wanting to see again.

If anyone asks, I watch things like "The English Patient" or "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon." Really, though, "Corky Romano" is one of the few movies I always come back to in the end. It's my dirty little secret, but it always makes me happy.
