Honesty hurts. It sinks deep, and sometimes hits harder than we would like. Corky Romano isn't stupid humor, it's rediculous. It may very well be the dumbest waste of time I have ever applied.

Corky Romano is like rewinding your dvd's. It serves no purpose, and its embarassing. Jerry Lewis covered everything in this movie, with more talent, and skill, decades ago.

The Plot, if I dare mention the word: a single bafoon, with a counterfiet piece of paper and a suit, announcing that he is tapped (and high, and along the way teaches a kiddie class...also high) infiltrates the F.B.I. in a matter of minutes - Its amazing what your cliche' hacker can get you from his basement when you give him a good threat and a slap in the head. Im guilty of liking goofy movies... the "Bill and Teds" are among them, but as a friend, which I hope you consider me to be...don't see this junk. It's a mistake, it stinks. I hate, hate, hated, it. Best of luck to Kattan.

If you liked it, that's great. Terrific for lovers of stupid humor.

About this movie


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 ofCorky Romanodeclines 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
