J.R. has been telling me about the greatness of The Onion Movie for a long time and it lived up to my high expectations. The premise of the movie is paper thin. Newsman Norm Archer (Len Cariou) is pissed about a major corporate takeover that has corrupted the integrity of the news. His broadcast has been overrun with advertisements for the a new movie called Cock Puncher starring Steven Seagal. The framework sets up news coverage of events around town. The sketches are hit or miss. The misses are few and the many of the hits are grand slams. It builds to a climax which blends the characters of many of the major sketches and leads to a lot of people being punched directly in the cock.
It is outlandishly funny. If you like The Onion then you need to see The Onion Movie.
