SRC 092: An American Carol (2008)
When your Christmas Carol spoof plays more like a viable interrogation tactic (ala waterboarding) than it does a supposed "comedy" film, you know you've stone faced your way into the Restroom...
AN AMERICAN CAROL deals with a Michael Moore styled filmmaker (a painfully unfunny Kevin P. Farley, brother of the late Chris Farley) who is visited by three ghosts when he attempts to abolish the Fourth of July. What follows are a lot of stale, recycled (often racist) gags that are delivered up from once great parody writer/director David Zucker (AIRPLANE!)
This comedic lead balloon is available for streaming on VUDU and YouTube (for free!), but as always, you're better off this un-yuck fest to us and finding some other parody film to get your cackle on.
American freelance journalist and author Talia Soghomonian joins us via Paris to assist with our first holiday flushing of the month. Her work has appeared in Rolling Stone magazine, In Style, and The New York Times.
Sit back now and give a listen as Nat, Griffin, & Knight flush you down the Cinematic Bowl with, AN AMERICAN CAROL...
