    THE KENTUCKY FRIED MOVIE (1977) is a good example of a collection ofcomedy skits done right. IMPS* (which stands for The Immoral MinorityPicture Show) on the other hand is an example of just how grueling thisformat can be when everything goes horribly wrong! Even Saturday NightLive on its worst day is funnier than this. I'm not really sure whenIMPS* was actually filmed (checking the end credits says the DVD issueyear of 2008), but it was obviously some time in the early 1980s sinceseveral of the actors here were dead by the middle part of the decade.So is it a bad sign that it took about 25 years to actually releasethis? Absolutely! You will find yourself groaning and rolling your eyesabout twenty times more than you'll snicker at this childish, horriblyunfunny collection of skits that poke fun at various movies, TV shows,sporting events, news programs and commercials, as well as Nazis, gays,blacks, "Pollocks," Mexicans, Jews, "orientals" and other groups. Ipersonally don't mind off color or offensive humor at all, but thismovie doesn't go far enough to be over-the-top and outrageous, nor doesit cleverly play up on stereotypes or anything of the sort. Though Ican't recommend anyone watch this, it's now of some interest as a curiopiece because of the ensemble cast. Here we have a very interesting mixof up-and-coming young film and TV stars, washed-up former stars intheir twilight years, magazine centerfolds, porn stars, cult/horrorstaples and even a Harlem Globetrotter!

    One of the highlights is an ever-so-mildly amusing horror spoof "Don'tScream on My Face" (did Edgar Wright see this?) starring Linda Blair as"The Don't Girl," the dumbest horror movie heroine in history who doesthe expected stupid things (going into the house alone, the basement,the woods, etc.) Jason Voorhees even makes a cameo appearance in thisone… using a walker! A young Jennifer Tilly goes to an auction topurchase a well-established bachelor in the next bit. "The 3 MileIsland People" is a sitcom spoof about a literal nuclear family (withFred Willard as the dad). Marilyn Chambers shows up wearing see-throughlingerie in a credit card commercial. Colleen Camp humiliates some poorguy at a bar for no real reason (was this even supposed to be funny?).John Carradine hosts "Great Moments" in Polish history (where anoff-screen narrator reminds him there are no great moments in Polishhistory… har har). Wendy Jo Sperber is the Marquessa De Sade in amusic video spoof about S&M and spousal abuse. Julia Duffy narrates atrashy soap opera sketch from a bed on a theater stage. Rich Hall triesto sell us an album from some Don Ho clone. Busty former Playboy modelLynda Wiesmeier plays sex queen Bambi Juliette in what is probably themost amusing segment – "Teenage French Stewardess Nurse Babysitter,"though even that just rips off the much funnier "Catholic High SchoolGirls in Trouble" sketch from the aforementioned KENTUCKY FRIED MOVIE.

    Jimmie Walker plays "the first black in space" in another segment thatalso features Keenan Wynn (who passed away in 1986). James B. Sikkinggets to play a weight conscious Count Dracula in a stupid "Lite Blood"commercial. The two longest segments; one about a Nazi interrogation(with David Lander and Michael McKean) and the other a slasher/detective movie spoof called "The Hanukah Horror," yield no laughs atall. There are also commercials spoofing everything from Calvin Kleinjeans (featuring a young Erika Eleniak imitating Brooke Shields) toflavorless diet soda (with P.J. Soles) to dandruff shampoo (with PeterScolari and Audrey Landers) to telephone companies (with SybilDanning). Other commercial spoof involve super glue, aspirin,deodorant, Shake N' Bake, beer and "quaaludes for kids."

    While some of this may sound amusing and many of the themes seem ripefor parody, this "comedy" is so horribly written and has such lame andobvious jokes that the laughs just aren't there. Like ever! I've seldomseen a film like this fail so badly. It's just plain painful to watch.Most of the segments last about a minute, though a few are longer aremanage to wear out their welcome pretty quickly. The only thing thefilm really provides an abundance of is bare breasts, but you couldalways spare yourself the headache and just watch a porno instead.

    I'm all for skit comedy, and have copies of "The Kentucky Fried Movie",and "Amazon Women on the Moon", as part of my DVD collection.Unfortunately what we have with "Imps", is a twenty year old previouslyunreleased production, which should have remained unreleased. Now thisis coming from someone who appreciates this type of film. There areexactly two chuckles in 80 minutes of "Imps". John Carradine presenting"Great Moments in Polish History", and Keenan Wynn communicating with"The First Black Man on the Moon". Other than these two brief skits,everything else is unfunny. I couldn't wait to hit the eject button.Trust me this is BAD. – MERK

    Short skit movies are part of the cinematic language in the couple ofdecades after Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In made ADHD-esquire scenarios ahit, and both National Lampoon and Mad Magazine became nationaltreasures (that have both failed at living up to their reputation oflate).

    In a way, the movies are far and few enough to almost be thought of interms of clichéd relationships. The Kentucky Fried movie is like youroverly-knowledgeable film geek friend who cracks you up. The GrooveTube is like that stoner friend of yours who can't get his mind out ofthe gutter. Amazon Women on the Moon is your sci-fi geek. And, Imps* islike that stupid uncle that comes over retelling all of the off-colorjokes you read on the internet or through viral videos last year, butdumbs them down and doesn't know how to finish the joke.

    IMPS* (The Immoral Minority Picture Show) is a collection of skitsmeant to push the boundaries of good taste, and be a spiteful middlefinger to the moral majority. And, it may have pushed some boundarieswhen it was filmed 25-30 years ago, though I doubt it. Since it wasreleased straight-to-DVD in 2009, the jokes have gotten stale, bland,and feel tame as all hell. In addition, almost all the skits that eventhink about working either end on a wah-wah trumpet note, or just getlost and should have ended 3 seconds sooner so the finale never comes.Python had it right in that you should escape before the skit goes bad.

    IMPS* has no less than 4 skits about deodorant and BO. OOOO, edgy. 1would have been just fine, thank you. The rest of the skits, with fewlasting over 2-3 minutes, are a hodge podge of one-liner adaptations orexpansions on older-than-dirt jokes. The best ones include Linda Blairin Don't Scream on my Face, and Wendy Jo Sperber's song about spousalabuse and S&M. The rest just go flat.

    And, it isn't good pain to watch this.
