The Kentucky Fried Movie
Allegedly a thriller, this Italian import is about as scary as a bowl of cold ravioli—and not much more interesting. Jessica Harper (Love and Death) plays a young dancer who arrives at a ballet school in Germany run by Joan Bennett, who has made a sadly dumb choice if she is looking for a comeback vehicle. The school is actually the lair of a moldering old witch, however, and some listless mayhem ensues. The film, directed by Dario Argento, has a grating sound track that randomly rises to a painful pitch. The title is never explained; it may be Italian for "pretty boring." (R)
A pathetic, oft-jailed Berlin street musician (Bruno S.) emigrates to Wisconsin with his streetwalker girlfriend (Eva Mattes) and an eccentric old man. All three discover America holds little worth having. That is the plot, but the film's real strength lies in German director Werner Herzog's ability to convey his characters' moods visually. Haunting background music by Chet Atkins and Sonny Terry deepens the enjoyment of this lyrical film. (No rating)
Fans of television's Saturday Night will love this wacky collection of comedy sketches masquerading as a movie. Though a few of the spoofs fall flat, most are good for a giggle, especially the takeoffs on disaster movies, aspirin commercials and the current glut of happy-talk news shows. Most of the performers are unknown, with a few surprise cameos—including Richard A. Baker, who played Dino De Laurentiis' King Kong, appearing here as an ape named Dino. (R)
