The Kentucky Fried Movie

A well above average sketch film from 1977, highlighted by a lengthy, hilariously deadpan kung fu parody, A Fistful of Yen. Though the director was a young John Landis (it was his second film), the dominant personalities are the writers: the Jim Abrahams, David Zucker, and Jerry Zucker team that went on to do Airplane! and Top Secret!. It's easy to spoof cliches; it's something else again to string them together with the insight into narrative structure these boys evidence. With cameo appearances by George Lazenby, Bill Bixby, Donald Sutherland, and Tony Dow.
