Corky Romano Review


Weak
The one question that eats at me after seeing Corky Romano is why Touchstone spent so much money marketing this throwaway film. Since June, I haven't been able to turn on the TV or go to the movies without getting hit by some ad depicting Chris Kattan as the spastic Corky, shrieking out A-Ha's "Take On Me" in his yellow Miata.

Why do you suppose "Saturday Night Live" stars seem to be no more discriminating when picking movie scripts than zoo monkeys are when they eat their own feces? Are they that desperate to see themselves on the big screen?

And what kind of studio executive can live with himself after green-lighting a picture in which the infuriatingly shrill Chris Kattan nancies his way through a lobotomized plot about the nitwit son of a mob boss going undercover in the FBI?
