I'll admit that I did not like this film the first time I saw it in the theatre. It started out at a snail's pace and seemed equally strained for laughter. However, there was a smattering of truly insightful comic genius throughout that made it mildly enjoyable. Then I watched it on video with a group of people. For some unknown reason I found myself laughing uncontrollably. As I watched the film again I then began to notice how much it followed the GODFATHER saga in parody. Once I began to realize what the filmmakers were doing it all started to take shape and made good comic sense. Not only did it follow the same inspirational format of AIRPLANE but it took the same approach with its audience: if this joke doesn't work for you we have plenty more lined up one after another and eventually you are going to start laughing. What's interesting is that you actually have to listen carefully to what is being said to really get the full effect of this well thought out comedy because it is much more than just a parody.

I thought this movie was hilarious. Some people said that they hated this movie and that it was not funny at all. To this, I say that it depends on the person. To fully enjoy this movie, you have to have seen the movies it is parodying, like Casino and Godfather series. If you have seen those movies, watch and enjoy. If not, you still might like it. Give it a shot!

This movie is one of the most funny movies I have ever seen. I really depends on what kind of sense of humor you have. It is especially funny for a kid, but has some stuff an adult would know about to get some jokes.
It is a spoof on mob movies, and some others, like Forrest Gump. It doesn't really need lots of explaining, just watch it for laughs!
You would probably like this movie if you liked stuff like Naked Gun, or Hot Shots.

I watched this movie with my friend and it was so funny! Laugh-out-loud funny gags and spoofs. In this movie they spoofed alot of different movies: The Godfather movies, Scarface, Twister, The English Patient, Forrest Gump(run, florist, run!), they spoof even more, including Riverdance. The best part is the Child's Play/Lost World Jurassic Park spoof. A little boy named Chucky(he's dressed like the Chucky doll) is running through the forest. He falls over a log, and the compy dinosaurs(the small ones), jump over the log and attack him(his clothes fly over the log). The plot is well, confusing. But if you see it, you should get it(unlike me!). But, be warned, this isn't for kids! This has alot of stuff that's offensive, plus stuff they wouldn't get(like people sniffing drugs). Overall, it's a funny laugh-out-loud movie that spoofs the mafia. Throw in some top-notch actors, and you got one movie that's worth watching on a Friday night!

Best:
1) The sight gags and verbal funnies come fast and furious.
2) Many of the jokes are hilarious and will have you rolling.
3) You get to see classic gangster actors spoofing themselves.
Worst:
1) Some of the stuff was REALLY dumb (as in not funnny dumb).
2) Can you really have too many fart jokes? Yes.
3) There are no special features on the disk.
Recommendation:
If you liked the "Airplane", "Naked Gun" and "Hot Shots" type of movies, then you should like this one too. I say get it due to it's high rewatch value.

We watched this movie at Thanksgiving and my 81 year old father-in-law
was laughing so hard he was crying! We had to buy this for him. We are
giving it to him today, Christmas day, and I imagine we will watch it again. It is nice to see the old fellow enjoying it because he falls asleep during most movies, but not this one!

Format: DVD
A hilarious comedy from the makers of Airplane and The Naked Gun. Anthony (Jay Mohr) is from an Italian family in the Mafia. It tells the story about how his father (Lloyd Bridges in his last film) came to America and started his family. Anthony marries Diane (Christina Applegate) and goes out on a mission to find out who killed his father. Often funny, and a little confusing at points. Anthony's disturbed brother Joey is quite silly, putting in stupid remarks and nearly getting his whole family killed numerous times. All in all, this spoof on The Godfather is very likeable and humorous.

I can't believe people didn't find this amusing-- I laughed the whole way through! In my opinion it was better than the Airplane! movies, which I didn't think were THAT funny, so I don't know what was the big deal about that. I don't think this movie is confusing at all either, not that hard to understand. If you're not going to be good natured and laugh at something because you think it's too silly, don't get it and be bored. I recommend this movie to all my friends... and all of them so far have loved it!
