Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

The setup is promising: The Romano mob family know that they're being betrayed by a hidden FBI informant in their ranks, so they decide to send a family member under cover to destroy the evidence against them--but the only family member the FBI won't recognize is the family black sheep, Corky (Chris Kattan), a touchy-feely aspiring veterinarian. But once Corky goes undercover, his klutzy ways accidentally make him the star of the FBI, sparking envy from his fellow agents and arousing suspicion in the mob. Though the script of Corky Romano declines as the movie goes on, Kattan actually keeps the picture going; his spastic, sniveling, childish energy is engaging, and at its best the production bubbles over with silliness. It only falls flat when Kattan has to behave in a remotely adult manner, which fortunately doesn't happen very often. Cheerful dopiness. Featuring Peter Falk, Peter Berg, and Chris Penn as mobsters. --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars Corky Romano! March 22 2004
Format:DVD
Corky Romano has got to be one of the best movies EVER!!! It is doesn't drrraaaagggg on like other movies do, so it's easy to watch over and over again without getting bored. Plus, it's hilarious without being crude like you may find in other comedies. I've seen this movie 4 complete times being said on 3/22/2004, but by the time you're reading this, it may be twice as many! I've memorized entire scenes, even a chapter! Corky is relativly family friendly, though some things some people might find inappropriate for younger people, primarily the swear words. Pops Romano, a mafia father is having charges pressed against him, so he sends his son, Corky, to go undercover as an FBI Agent and destroy all evidence against him. His new fake name is Corky Pissant, which he claims is pronounced "pea-sont," and his fake resumé says he knows five different languages, has an olympic gold medal for sharpshooting, and is a black belt in some fighting style. Now Corky has to try and get the evidence while trying to live up to his fake resumé. The movie takes place over only 3 days or so, so it is fast-paced. Overall, "Corky Romano" is a fun movie to watch and I would recommend it to anyone.

Version of Corky Romano Reviewed: Touchstone Entertainment Widescreen DVD, 2003
ABOUT THE FILM
The Premise: Corky Romano (Chris Kattan) is the black sheep son in a dysfunctional, quirky mafia family. He's not a fan of the family business--he's much more concerned with animals (he's an assistant veterinarian), helping people, and spreading good cheer and hugs (think of a less "flamboyant" version of Richard Simmons). Because of this, after his mother passed away, his father (Peter Falk) and brothers (Peter Berg and Chris Penn) disowned him. However, when the family business is threatened by an informant working with the FBI, they need someone whom they can trust, but who isn't a known link to the family, to pose as an FBI agent and find out what they know and how they know it. Corky is unwillingly recruited for the job.
Facts And Assessments To Help You Decide Whether You Might Like This Film:
This is a fish-out-of-water comedy, and more specifically, would fit into a "Saturday Night Live comedy" genre. The Saturday Night Live comedy genre, with Kattan being the formal link to Saturday Night Live here, usually plays something like a film-length skit from the show, with more expensive production values, and a more formally structured plot.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not great, but not bad either Oct. 23 2002
By J. Cain
Format:DVD
If you don't like Chris Kattan, you shouldn't even be reading this. If you like Chris Kattan, you will probably like this movie. Chris is perky, energetic, adorable, and rather silly in this movie ... everything you'd expect from him really. The plot is better than most would probably like to admit. Yet, this movie still is not a stand-out. Perhaps it's too perky, energetic, etc. I can't put my finger on what was missing or what was saturating in this movie that prevented it from being a great comedy, but it just wasn't. But again, it wasn't bad either -- worth a watch or a rental, but maybe not a purchase.
As you've probably deduced from the previews, Chris' character is a bubbly and likeable, albeit clutzy, veterinarian who happens to be part of a mob family. This is the obvious irony and source of most of the humor in the movie. Chris feigns FBI agent for most of the movie, which is as funny as it is unbelievable. There is the mandatory love interest who is also an FBI agent. And Chris of course learns a thing or two along the way. There's nothing particularly shocking or innovative in this movie but it does generally do its job -- it makes you laugh ... or at least chuckle.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wow... July 18 2002
Format:DVD
Honesty hurts. It sinks deep, and sometimes hits harder than we would like. Corky Romano isn't stupid humor, it's rediculous. It may very well be the dumbest waste of time I have ever applied.
Corky Romano is like rewinding your dvd's. It serves no purpose, and its embarassing. Jerry Lewis covered everything in this movie, with more talent, and skill, decades ago.
The Plot, if I dare mention the word: a single bafoon, with a counterfiet piece of paper and a suit, announcing that he is tapped (and high, and along the way teaches a kiddie class...also high) infiltrates the F.B.I. in a matter of minutes - Its amazing what your cliche' hacker can get you from his basement when you give him a good threat and a slap in the head. Im guilty of liking goofy movies... the "Bill and Teds" are among them, but as a friend, which I hope you consider me to be...don't see this junk. It's a mistake, it stinks. I hate, hate, hated, it. Best of luck to Kattan.
If you liked it, that's great. Terrific for lovers of stupid humor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny movie
It's already considered a classic in my books. A great funny movie for the family. Now my movie collection can start growing again.

I almost turned this one off after the tired shtick Kattan played out in the vet's office. But I must say the part with the accidental cocaine buzz right before speaking in front... Read more
