Product Description

Chris Kattan (A NIGHT AT THE ROXBURY, TV's SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE), Peter Falk (TV's COLUMBO), Peter Berg (COP LAND, TV's CHICAGO HOPE), and Chris Penn (RUSH HOUR) star in this hilarious, fish-out-of-water comedy caper from two of the producers of THE WATERBOY. Naive, bumbling Corky Romano (Kattan), the outcast son of a Mafia boss (Falk), is recruited by his family to infiltrate the FBI and steal any and all evidence that will put his cranky father in jail. But he's in way over his head when he's made out to be a super agent! It's a reputation he must live up to as he tries to fake his way through one tough assignment after another while hunting for the elusive incriminating proof of his father's illegal activities.

Amazon.com

The setup is promising: The Romano mob family know that they're being betrayed by a hidden FBI informant in their ranks, so they decide to send a family member under cover to destroy the evidence against them--but the only family member the FBI won't recognize is the family black sheep, Corky (Chris Kattan), a touchy-feely aspiring veterinarian. But once Corky goes undercover, his klutzy ways accidentally make him the star of the FBI, sparking envy from his fellow agents and arousing suspicion in the mob. Though the script of Corky Romano declines as the movie goes on, Kattan actually keeps the picture going; his spastic, sniveling, childish energy is engaging, and at its best the production bubbles over with silliness. It only falls flat when Kattan has to behave in a remotely adult manner, which fortunately doesn't happen very often. Cheerful dopiness. Featuring Peter Falk, Peter Berg, and Chris Penn as mobsters. --Bret Fetzer

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.

I saw this a couple of times and thought it was hilarious. The story line is interesting and Chris Kattan is great as a mobster undercover with the police force. It's a quirky comedy - my favorite kind - and I would highly recommend it.

Well, as the title would imply, I rented this movie as this hot/crazy Albanian chick loves this movie for whatever ungodly reasons. Needless to say, the mixture of Chris Kattan and alcohol cause her to be overwhelmed by hormones and ended up procreating several times. Great movie.

HILARIOUS. I know their are haters out there on this movie but I love it. It's just one of those silly movies that you shouldn't go into to serious and expecting a great story , just take it for what it is FUNNY. Kinda like the Naked Gun movies or Dumb and Dumber Too. I just really like movies like this.

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.

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.
