      David M Dissapointing follow-up to Young Einstein. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/20/24 Full Review Audience Member As seen on Telefutura. It also stars a pre-"The Office" Melora Hardin. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the "better" Yahoo Serious movies. It's still pretty dumb but actually much more entertaining! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member John Pinette is the best thing about this (as the low-budget film producer whose movies are so good they go straight to video) Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the most underrated movies of all time, bar none. It was a movie that came and went with nary a second look here in the States, and through some miracle, I discovered it on HBO sometime in the mid-'90s and summarily laughed my ass off. While it's not quite the perfect parody movie, I've never seen a flick that is so knowing of its own badness and revels in its stupidity with as much gusto as "Reckless Kelly." It takes its national hero and places him in the early '90s - the result being some truly incendiary comedy from Mr. Serious that I've always found to be FAR Superior to "Young Einstein," his 1988 box office smash that many people remember while this has sadly fallen into the obscurity file. Plus, you've gotta hand it to any movie that features Alexei Sayle as an evil perm-wearing Scotland Yard investigator. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member A lot better than his other films, let me tell you that. The acting's decent, the plot's intentionally derivative of all these action film cliches (nationalism, awesomeness, family, honor, love), and the satire's kinda good (even if the prop comedy was overused - the bike did overdo it). It's satire for kids - not meant to be taken seriously except for that fact that violence isn't the best thing in our society. Bad things were the prop humor, the slapstick (though not much of it was present), and the general silliness of the film. If you think Python is silly, check this guy out. In my top 200 films - pretty low. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
