A poke in the eye with a knife is more alluring

Just painful beyond words.

Fred Topel

Unfunny spoof. Lacks bite, timing and good ideas.

Alex Sandell
Juicy Cerebellum

Horrible wanna-be Airplane type spoof. Only thing worth noting is that it came before 'Scary Movie,' which falls into the same category.
