courage and daring. This explosive tale of gut wrenching excitement coupled with an
unparalleled display of human endurance will leave you totally breathless. The Farrelly
brothers have encapsulated the essence of John Grisham's latest Bestseller,
BUCKEYETOWN and turned it into a hillarious comedy. At no other time in American
history has such a daunting undertaking ever been accomplished with so much mastery. You

roller coaster ride of emotions in this

"There's not a lot of brain work involved in 'Corby', a
flat-out celebration of stupidity, bodily functions and pratfalls Yet the wholeheartedness
of this descent into crude and rude humor is so good-natured and precise that it's hard

|REVIEW by "Popcorn Pete"
Before I start into this
review, let me warn parents about this movie. For some unknown reason, John Corby The
Movie attained a PG-13 rating. Personally, I think that the Movie classification
board has lost its marbles, as the content contained within this movie is simply adults
only. I felt sorry for the parents who took their kids (well, it is PG-13, parents
should think twice about a movie that has that classification). I also felt sorry for the
kids who saw this, they looked traumatized on the way out. Although some of them were too
young to understand the content so hopefully they aren't all scarred for life.
Hunt (Mad About You) delivers as the lovely "Promotions Queen" Amber as does Carey (Drew Carey Show) as the savvy sports director, George Lehner and La Salle (ER) as sports analyst, Tony White. Hopkins (Hannibal) was splendid as the fiendish villain, "Boom Boom" who had been hypnotized by a gypsy over the phone during his late night show. The crazed Cannon then sets out to conquer the world with the help of his little buddy, Sterling, played by Hyde-Pierce (Fraizer) by infecting the world's population with Madcow disease. Corb himself falls prey to their sinister plot as he rants and raves and foams at the mouth over the airwaves.
Enter our two Action Heroes, Seagal and Spacey as Corporal Craig Sinclair and Paving the Way Boy, Tim Mentel, who set out to rescue Burlap Boy and his mother portrayed by Ruebens (Pee-Wee Herman) and Brocco (The Sopranos) from the evil clutches of the diabolical Boom Boom & Sterling. It seems that even though Burlap Boy, has no body, he is a genius and holds the cure for the disease which ails The Corb.
Williams (Mork& Mindy) makes a few appearances as Andy from Lima, mostly for comic relief and Mantooth (Emergency) as the amazingly brilliant and uncharacteristically cool website geek with waaay too much time on his hands wasn't spotted at all.
This movie covers all the bases and will leave everyone clammering for the sequal!
Movies like this require a kind of daring. There are jokes that must have made even the
filmmakers groan (John's licking and frolicking of the weather beaten butter bags while in
his madcow induced frenzy, for example). Good taste, prudence and timidity had no place on
the set. The Farrellys cut no corners and took no prisoners. "Corby" provides
the release of many kinds of laughter, including the most rare: disbelieving.
