1.0 out of 5 stars Worst Movie Ever Made May 24, 2008
Does John Melendez really think people were interested him as an actor? "Many" is a disquieting testament to Melendez's massive ego, for he not only acts, but scripts, produces, executive produces, and writes/performs about half of the soundtrack. Impressive feats, until you find out just how dreadful "Many" is.

"One, Two, Many" is atrociously unfunny and Melendez reveals himself to be a man of zero charisma and artistic capability.

The director here is actor Michael DeLorenzo ("New York Undercover"), and I use the term "director" ironically, since there's nothing in this film actually being led. Essentially a vessel for Melendez to remind the world how hilarious he thinks he is, DeLorenzo's sole job appears to be making sure the camera is in focus. Even that is a challenge during the film. Why Melendez didn't direct the picture himself is mystery, since the movie is a love letter to his talents (or lack thereof). Perhaps blocking a scene while also having to dream up new ways to mug shamelessly for the camera would've been too much for Melendez to juggle.

The pain starts with opening titles no more impressive than the introduction to grandma's vacation video and extends to: Thomas calling his genitalia a "vagining rod," an unintentionally hilarious sequence where Thomas defends the local stutterer from bullies, an embarrassing cameo from Mark Cuban, the use of what looks like "Tonight Show" offices to sub for apartment and hotel hallways, and an extended straining-on-toilet diarrhea gag that accurately sums up both John Melendez's talents and the film's vast ambitions.

In fact, "Many" is packed with unimaginative, juvenile humor.

1.0 out of 5 stars not sexy or funny April 24, 2008
I'm a huge fan of John, I loved him on Get Me Out of Here, on the Tonight Show. Watching this movie just made my life 90 minutes shorter though. There was nothing funny about this movie though, and there wasn't anything really sexy about it either. Don't waste your time on this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars This movie is one too many! June 6, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
While John Melendez is not a particularly good actor (he seems to have the screen presence of a squirrel), this is still a movie with a few funny parts here & there. Bellamy Young has far better acting skills than Melendez, and she also seems to be too much of a sophisticate for this movie. That, of course, makes her perfect as the role of the g/f who is open to F/F/M threesomes. I've always been a fan of Hudson Leick's ever since her recurring portrayal of Callisto on Xena Warrior Princess - Complete Series (Seasons 1-6).

So, with all that said, why am I hammering this movie so hard with just 1 star? Well, the answer is pretty basic: it seems that National Lampoon simply doesn't understand its client base. With an NL movie with threesomes as the subject matter, one would expect (if not demand!) a great deal of gratuitous nudity. I mean, if you can't make a movie like this w/out excuses for having a slew of topless babes, then what is the point?

Instead, this movie strikes out altogether in this department. In the climactic scene in which he gets this threesome wish, the girls only strip down to their underwear. How lame is THAT? Basically, this film is something like a Corvette with a Yugo engine. Sure, it looks good on the cover, but....

The sad thing is, this could have been a terrific movie. The concept was sound and the subject matter could easily be used for myriad humorous situations. This is one of those NL movies that had potential, but ended up being half-baked. Oh, where are the makers of National Lampoon's Van Wilder - Unrated (Two-Disc Special Edition) when you need them! sigh

1.0 out of 5 stars Has to be the worst movie ever made April 18, 2008
By Kilgore
I loved when Stuttering John was on the Stern Show, and I looked forward to this film. However, this could be, no, it has to be, the worst movie I have ever saw. Nothing, and I mean nothing, was funny about it.

If you think you have to watch this movie then d/l it off the Internet, because this isn't worth the shipping and handling charges.

National Lampoon used to put out some good movies, I don't know what happened to them, but there is a reason why this went straight to DVD.

Plus, can someone tell me what Stuttering John does on the Leno show. I betcha Leno could shot himself for hiring this talentless hack. It goes to show what talent Stern has if he could take this hack and make him amusing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst National Lampoon movie ever!!!!! March 19, 2009
This was the worst National lampoons movie ever. If Stuttering John thinks this is gonna create an up and coming film career, he's got another thing coming. The acting is horrible and you can predict how each scene is going to turn out. They should show this movie at film school as "How not to make a movie". Shame on you John.

1.0 out of 5 stars Garbage April 18, 2008
So John is still trying to ride on Howard Stern's coat tails and has reached new lows by thinking he can actually write and act. Like another reviewer, I rented this unwatchable "straight to DVD" dreck after seeing Jay Leno pimping it. 15 minutes in I was yawning...I ejected the DVD at the 45 minute mark because I just couldn't take it anymore. Most unbelievable to me someone actually financed this POS. I see that comedic impostor, Jackie Marlow ("F" Timmy BTW), posted a predictably glowing review...'nuff said on that front.

You guys had it made on the Stern show because he carried all of you. Your day in the sun is LONG gone. Don't think you have any talent to do anything else but act as the stuttering buffoon John...that is all you are capable of. Howard is a distant memory since he lost his mind and disappeared into satellite oblivion (yup...he clearly picked the wrong horse) so you should thank Jay Leno every day for that sweet & easy gig and keep a low profile so no one notices you are a talentless hack.

The National Lampoon Presents can't really help this one. It is not as racy as the title implies. I never really liked, or cared for the lead character.
