*A great, varied assortment of comedic sketches that makes fun of many different aspects of modern-day society, culture, and politics. Topics include such issues as terrorism, sexuality in pop music, corporate greed, and so on.
*A few good parodies (most prominently, Steven Segal parodying himself!).
*Also a good number of original sketches.
*A few funny pieces of self-parody (ie, the scenes where film critics gather around and rate the movie).
*There is a very slight story arc that ties in many of the sktis together into a bizzare finale, and ultimately presents some major themes about journalistic ethics and corporate greed (although these themes are not very strongly developed).
The Bad Things
*No characters to develop, no story to tell (but hey, it's sketch comedy, so who cares?).
The Questionable Things
*A fair amount of perversity. Expect a lot of swear words and a little bit of graphicness. Some may find it too crude, but I think it's just right.
*Quite a bit of racey humor.
This eighty-minute collection of skits is probably the funniest thing I have seen in a while. The comedy is great, and presents enough satire to make it somewhat thoughtful. There is some sickness to some of it, but it's nowhere near as bad as some other comedies out there (like "Meet the Spartans" or the "Scary Movie" series). It may not be as funny as the Onion website, but I would say that this is comparable to "Saturday Night Live," "Robot Chicken," or Monty Python's "Meaning of Life."
The disc has okay video and sound quality. It has ten minutes of deleted scenes (which are really good) and outtakes.
I crack up thinking about some of these sketches. Don't expect high brow humor. This stuff is dumb, but hilarious. Classic Onion comedy, great buy.
This is the #1 comedy OF ALL TIME !!!

I only got it to see Len Cariou. I fast forwarded through the other parts. Kinda too silly for me, but Len was great. Very sexy.Published 5 months ago by m. drake
It's a very funny movie. It's satire and it makes fun of everything. I think it will occasionally "cross the line" and "go too far" for some people though. Read morePublished 6 months ago by From the Musician's Pen
