Felt dirty for laughing. Felt good for eye raising.

Directions by the late Bob Saget and starring the late Norm Macdonald who's funny but not a very good actor, this slob comedy has moments of spit take style comedy but more that are eye raising and fowl and often cruel. MacDonald and his friend/ secret brother Artie Lange (not funny or a decent actor at all) start a Revenge business to pay for McDonald's grandfather Jack Warden heart transplant. He's an old geezer and curmudgeon who says exactly what he thinks, and he is funny and a good actor, delivering even the most idiotic of lines with great class and a sparkle. It was one of his last roles after a 50+ year career on stage and screen, as well as the last role for Chris Farley who appears in an unfunny cameo.

Chris McDonald (no relation to Norm) plays one of his patented villains, and he's actually much more likable than the two leads, seeking revenge on the revenge squad for ruining his efforts to bulldoze a neighborhood to build a parking lot. Traylor Howard is cute as the girl who likes Norm but despises what he does, but she isn't serviced well by this film. There are also cameos by Adam Sandler as Satan, Gary Coleman, John Goodman and Don Rickles as a movie theater owner whom the pair briefly work for and destroy because of his rude treatment of the staff. His segment is pretty funny as is the revenge on a car dealership filming a commercial. Chevy Chase has a larger supporting part as Warden's doctor who is addicted to gambling. When this film is funny, is laugh out loud, hysterically funny, but when the gags bomb, they stink like a rotten egg.

"I've never seen so many dead hookers in all my life."

There's a reason I don't seek out films featuring SNL alumIni and this one shows why. I call it trying to appeal to the lowest common denominator, with juvenile attempts at humor and appalling writing. Norm MacDonald and Artie Lange are the leads here, as partners and 'brothers' who go into the revenge for hire business. They get some back up help from former SNL cast members Chevy Chase and Chris Farley, along with a quick cameo by Adam Sandler as Satan. The only appealing character here for this viewer was Traylor Howard as Kathy, proving you don't have to be a goofball to appear in what purports to be a comedy.

Quick question - who thought it was a good idea for Ken Norton to knock out Gary Coleman?

I should be ashamed of myself, but this film actually made me laugh

Norm MacDonald and Artie Lange play two friends who aren't particularly bright and have a long history of screwing up their lives and losing jobs. Then they get the bright idea of opening up their own business--one that will get revenge for a price. The acts of revenge are among the funniest things about the film. I especially loved how he got revenge on the loud neighbors and the sleazy car salesman.

There were some serious negatives in the film such as quite a few flat jokes here, the unfunny bit where MacDonald makes notes to himself on a tape recorder (it was overdone on SNL--it was even worse here) and there was the ending--it seemed to end way too quickly and the resolution wasn't particularly satisfying compared to the earlier parts of the film.

However, this film has the phrase "guilty pleasure" written all over it. While the film has many flat moments, crude jokes and horrible messages, it did make me laugh and laugh--and that's the most important positive about the film. I know I should be ashamed of myself, but you can't ignore a film that puts a smile on your face like this stupid movie did. In addition, I hate to admit that I also laughed at MacDonald's other critically scathed film SCREWED. I feel so dirty--these are NOT deep or sophisticated films and they abound with juvenile humor--but they make me laugh.

By the way, keep note of all the unusual supporting actors that appeared in this film such as Chevy Chase, Don Rickles, Adam Sandler, Chris Farley and Jack Warden (among others). Obviously, there were a lot of folks out there that liked MacDonald and wanted to help him with this film.
