National Lampoon’s Movie Madness

Let’s put our sneaking affection for Chevy Chase aside for a moment and admit it – National Lampoon is rubbish, isn’t it? Here’s a trio of tepid overlong spoof sketches of Dallas and other hackneyed targets. God knows what the magazine was like. Richard ‘Madigan’ Widmark, Candy ‘Mary Lou’ Clark, Robert ‘Greatest American Hero’ Culp, Christopher ‘Jim’ Lloyd, Rhea ‘Carla’ Perlman, Dick ‘Bucket of Blood’ Miller, Julie ‘Marge’ Kavner, Robby Benson and Harry ‘Deep Throat’ Reems all call in, on their way either to or from better things (except maybe those last two).

    Actually, the magazine was pretty much shit as well–MAD had gotten to most of the juicy targets in the late 1950’s and 1960’s, and all this rag had to add was general misanthropy and pictures of naked women and something close to the clinical definition of homophobia (you know, hating homosexuals because you’re afraid you ARE one).
