From the team that brought you Airplane, Police Squad and The Naked Gun comes the original pioneering laughter-fest that spawned countless comedy quotes, launched the careers of some of the funniest men in Hollywood and became the absolute must-see cult movie of its time. Now, the phenomenon that is The Kentucky Fried Movie is back, this time as a special two-disc DVD release featuring a host of extras, including a feature-length interview with its co-creators, the Zucker brothers, plus brand new artwork by artist Graham Humphreys (The Evil Dead; A Nightmare On Elm Street).

Written by Jim Abrahams and David and Jerry Zucker, and directed by John Landis (An American Werewolf In London; The Blues Brothers; Animal House), The Kentucky Fried Movie is a hilarious, non-stop, adults-only send up of everything from TV, advertising and current affairs to exploitation movies and sex. Regarded by the LA Times as "inspired... flawless... [and] very raunchy", this cavalcade of puns, double entendres, slapstick and satire set the benchmark for every bad taste, gross-out, screwball comedy movie that would follow in its infamous footsteps.

Among the film's many unforgettable highlights are the gratuitously sex-filled teaser for the teen exploitation romp Catholic High School Girls In Trouble, the scene stealing boom microphone in the chat show High Adventure, the genius word-play of Courtroom and the awe-inspiring kung fu mini-movie, A Fistful Of Yen.

Featuring guest appearances by Donald Sutherland (Don't Look Now), Bill Bixby (The Incredible Hulk), Henry Gibson (The Blues Brothers), and James Bond star George Lazenby (On Her Majesty's Secret Service) amongst others, The Kentucky Fried Movie{/B} is an unmissable treat for fans of quick-fire madcap comedy.
