Episode 48: Chicken Park

This Italian film will curl the nosehairs on a dead nun. It's a "parody" of Jurassic Park but with chickens. Funny, no? No. This cinematic monstrosity comes to American shores courtesy of Jerry Cala, a national treasure in his homeland and scourge of anyone with a funny bone in the U.S.A.

Co-hosting this week is Mike Sullivan of Shock Cinema, Paracinema and Cashiers du Cinemart (among other things).

  1. You guys picked "Airplane!" as you number one. Good choice but you totally overlooked several parodies that I think should have been considered:

    1.) The Rutles - so dead on that it sounds like the Beatles and takes the air out of their image. Wonderful!

    2.) Life of Brian - the best parody of a Biblical epic ever!

    The guess the one connection is that both were created by Monty Python members.

  2. I think you have to be hard-hearted (or young whipper-snappers) not to include at least one of Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles and Silent Movie.
