Can’t afford Jim Carrey? Then hire Dave Sheridan, who will do his best impersonation of thebig star. As Frank McKlusky, Sheridan plays a young man so traumatized by his daredevilfather’s disastrous stunt that he has become psychotic about safety precautions (a neurosisencouraged by mother Dolly Parton). McKlusky’s dad (Randy Quaid) was denied medicalinsurance due to a crooked legal firm, who now, many years later, are up to no good again.McKlusky investigates, and the hilar…ty is as unstoppable. (I lie.)
The sound is much better than the film. The music (no surprise) comes through strong, butthe sound effects have a lot of rear presence, creating a nicely immersive background.
A nice 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer, when much better films have to make do withmuch less. The colours, contrasts and flesh tones are all very solid. There is a bit of grain visible,but only to an extremely minor degree.
Nothing but trailers for Big Trouble, Out Cold and Corky Romano.
Four words: decent transfer, lousy film.
