Saturday Night Live cast member Chris Kattan stars in this mob comedy as Corky Romano, a veterinarian with a penchant for pop music from the '80s. As a youth, Corky was kicked out of his Mafia-connected family for being an oddball.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Unlike the pathetic protagonists of many a smart dumb comedy, Corky never becomes sympathetic, and without this fundamental irony the movie doesn't have a leg to stand on."
‑ Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
"It's depressing enough to sit through an unfunny comedy, but it's worse to watch Falk, Penn and Berg having to earn a living like this."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Eighth rate tired, unimaginative mob comedy."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Chris Kattan should have been in silent comedy. He has the Silly Putty face of those old slapstick stars, and a sing-song, splitting-headache vox box that would have played much better in the silents."
‑ Kimberley Jones, Austin Chronicle
"Will somebody please offer Peter Falk a decent role? This 'crotchety old geezer' gig is getting tiresome."
‑ Jean Lowerison, San Diego Metropolitan
"Stick with the website."
‑ , Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Much too tired and mean-spirited to be funny."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"Although Corky Romano is not based on a Saturday Night Live sketch, it is still as dismal."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"Somebody, somewhere, actually believed in this dreck."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
"Very, very bad."
‑ Stephen Himes, Film Snobs
"Ever hear about the guy who liked to pummel his head with a sledgehammer, because it felt so good when he stopped? Maybe the same fellow would appreciate Corky Romano."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"It's strictly for someone looking for a goof-off."
‑ Bob Graham, San Francisco Chronicle
"Unfortunately, keeping Kattan in the forefront is also one of the main problems with the film."
‑ Kit Bowen,
" Townes Van Zandt sang, "Living's mostly wastin' time" anyway."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"...the majority of the jokes are obvious and crude."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
