Venerable newscaster Norm Archer (Len Cariou) reports the latest news in politics, health, culture and entertainment - such as an automotive recall of decapitation-inducing "neckbelts" and a study finding that "depression hits losers hardest." The compilation of bogus news stories, celebrity profiles and movie trailers comes courtesy of the ace satirists at The Onion. The film's most intriguing credit? Steven Seagal as Cock Puncher.

Bottom Line:

  • It plays on (and sometimes cross) the line of racist, sexual exploitation, gay issues and handicaps. You must always keep it close to your mind that this is a fake news
  • The funniness of it just last for a few second. You want to laugh but before you know it already not funny anymore
  • It fills with stupidity. Enough said
  • Featuring a pop stars who songs and videos are indeed eye catching and quite enjoyable. Songs included: Make Love from Behind (doggy style) and Down On My Knees (blow job). Although she said she doesn't think that her songs are sexually provocative as it seems in her clip videos
Not Likely To Be In It:
A real news

The film was filmed in 2003 but was postponed as the test audiences hated it. One review even said, "THE ONION MOVIE is basically an uncut, uncensored version of SNL or Mad TV. And to be honest, probably the worst episode of each mixed into a blender and then multiplied by ten." and he even wanted "to poke my eyes out." That being said, do visit their Onion News Network, where they knew the best way to deliver it - in short videos with cynical dialogs.

Bluecrystaldude's Rating:
