Now, maybe I was too young to 'get' this type of humour, but the whole movie is a bunch of 'shorts' strung together. Yeah, like movie promos that just wouldn't end. I don't remember laughing, but we did, in fact manage to sit through the whole thing.
I do remember one thing, however, the final skit had a little blues ditty and a soft shoe in the most unlikely places. It's the song that gives the movie it's title. I won't spoil it for you by typing the words, but I will say that 28 years later, I can still hear the dang thing resonating in my head. I still bop my head just a little to the incessant tune, never daring to utter it's base words. Sometimes, the song gives me a little smile, because remembering it means I survived sitting through even this movie, and other times because of the nostalgia of something from my youth. Once, I even contemplated searching youtube for just that clip, but dared not, lest it further ingrain those words into my brain.
This movie is not for just anyone. If you love the finer points of comedy and might be able to see it for an example parodying it's day, then rent it, but understand two things before you do. First, it does not have any kind of storyline and second, you will be humming that tune to your grave.
Enter at your own risk.
Hope you find it worth while.
I also remember the day I found it for sale in a used bin w/in the local BlockBuster Video (then called "Major Video"), and the clerk ranking on me for it being "the worst movie he ever saw".
My buddy worked at that same video store (was actually the manager whose opinions of movies were well respected by both myself and his employees) and together we schooled this kid about the "underground cult classic" this movie actually was/is. Anyway, that same clerk walked away thinking that he should have bought the movie by the time we were finished.
All in all, one of my favorites with tons of classic lines, if you go that route...
I'm not expecting Criterion treatment here, but skip this version in particular. The movie is worth a few bucks for the five or six truly funny scenes.

There isn't much to recommend in this film. It is made in the same vein as the groove tube but far less effectively. Read morePublished 8 months ago by mistery002
