Many critics have bashed this movie and Chris Kattan's talents herein.
I personally found this movie completely bewitching.
Corky Romano is a mama's boy who was sent to college while his two
older brothers kept at home, working for "Pop." Therefore Corky has an
education and a promising career as a veterinarian, while his older
brothers are nothing more than thugs for their mob-boss father.
Upon the death of Corky's mother, the brothers kicked him out of the
house and converted his room into a gym for themselves, leaving Corky
on his own, but he appears to have done quite well for himself without
any help from his "family." But now, Dad (Peter Falk as "Pops" Romano)
is in trouble with the FBI and now they want Corky to actually care
what happens to them. Personally, I would have let them rot, but being
the kind-hearted, sweet, and gentle soul that he is, he agrees to help
by infiltrating the FBI with phony transfer documents and a lot of
His mission: To steal back the evidence files against Pops or his
father could spend the rest of his very short life in prison.
It sounds serious, and could have been, but Chris Kattan is absolutely
jocose in his role as Corky Romano. I laugh every time I watch this
movie. He is insightful, caring, and intelligent, if a bit nervous and
spastic at times, but that is part of his charm. Some of these scenes
will have you wiping the tears from your eyes from laughing so hard.
This movie is a delightful fish-out-of-water story, and another of the
Fiend's many favorites.
"Do you guys want..some..cookies?!"
It rates a 7.6/10 from...
the Fiend :..
one of my favorites!
MIGHT BE A SPOILER!!!!! I LOVE THIS MOVIE! what else can I say it's
hilarious! it's about a VERY dysfunctional family...Corky who is cut
out for absolutely nothing, goes undercover as a FBI agent and the boss
thinks he's just what they need for the case of the night vulture. But
all wanted was to steal evidence against his father, "Pop" Romano, but
every time he comes a step closer they pull him back five. Corky Romano
is one of the funniest movies ever! I told my best friend about it and
I was shocked she'd never even heard of it! But I got her to watch it
and our favorite part is the same as almost everyone else's..."You guys
want some cookies?" This is what some call a dumb comedy but that's
what makes it SO funny!.
