"Mr. Mike's Mondo Video" was created under the auspices of NBC-TV as aproposed network special. NBC's motivation for doing so was largelysupported by O'Donoghue's strength as a writer and performer for SaturdayNight Live, then one of NBC's few genuine hit shows. When NBC censors sawthe finished pr...
Originally intended to be a one-shot summer replacement for Saturday NightLive, "Mr. Mike's Mondo Video" was never aired due to its aggressive,in-your-face humor: "Christmas on Other Planets," "The Church of the JackLord," "Laser Bra 2000," "Nazi Oven Mitts," and musical performances byRootBoy Slim ...
The title of my summary pretty much says it all. The movie is hilarious,butthere are less "belly" laughs than there are "Where the hell did that comefrom?" laughs. As National Lampoon fans know, Michael O'Donoghue was an"evil genius" of comedy. His philosophy was that there's no such thing as"too fa...
"Mr. Mike's Mondo Video" is almost indescribable in terms of itsmind-blowing bizarreness. This is Michael O'Donoghue's vision unfettered andit's not a pretty sight. (This is, of course, not to discount thecontributions of his fellow writers Mitch Glazer, Emily Prager and DirkWittenborn, but this is ...
It is a real shame that nearly no one under 30 knows the "over the top"writing of Michael O'Donoghugh- magazine articles and SNL skits thatwere genius for the time...and so it is a true shame that anyone whomay take the opportunity to research his work will no doubt take theeasy way out and watch vi...
I rented this last night, after having been impressed by the credentialsandthe fact that NBC refused to air it. Very rarely has a video failed tolive up to such lofty expectations; then again, I may have expected toomuch.Even though I knew from the first two sketches that this was going to be aver...
Continuing to review the early works of "SNL"ers in movies and TV,we're now at 1979 with the release of Mr. Mike's Mondo Video. MichaelO'Donoghue had just left "SNL" and did this thing after doing so. Itwas supposed to run on NBC but it was judged as too risky so it endedup running in movie theatres...
For a modern audience to get and appreciate "Mr. Mike's Mondo Video",it would probably help to know its history. Otherwise, you will betotally confused when seeing this film. Then again, while you mayunderstand this film, it may not make you laugh.The eponymous Mr. Mike is Michael O'Donoghue, who wa...
I looked forward to seeing this movie when it came out, since I was ahuge SNL fan. When my boyfriend and I went to see it, the people comingout of the early show were yelling, "Don't waste your money!" But ofcourse we had to find out for ourselves.While there were a few funny bits (Laser Bra 2000, R...
If you enjoy the original SNL cast and shows then avoid this movie atall costs. When this first came out my friends and I waited in line forover an hour to get in to a sold out movie house. half way through themovie the theatre was 3/4 empty. We refused to leave thinking it wouldget better. When the...
Well, I didn't laugh even once at this muddled, unfunny heap of film, whichbegins with a very boring, very unsmiling skit that centers around CatSwimming instruction. It moves into other tedious skits like `The Church ofthe Jack Lord" (a Church of the Sub-Genius styled farce that looks great onpape...
I saw this movie in 1979, I was 17 or 18, when it was released. Thetheater was perhaps 1/4 full when the movie started. Ten minutes intothe movie me and the friend who went with me to see the film were theonly two people in the theater. The movie was really weird and had noplot or reason to its scri...
I saw this cinematic wretchedness in a dollar theater with a friend in1979 (back when the tickets actually sold for $1). This is the onlyfilm I have ever walked out on (with my friend, while the idiocy thatis the "Laser Bra 2000" sketch was on screen). Evidently, my and myfriend's reaction to the fi...
This is the first movie I've ever walked out on and I've stomached quite afew. Half the people in the theatre walked out before I did. If you enjoywatching cats being thrown off the rooftop of buildings, looking at DanAykroyd's deformed feet and feel some sort of affinity toward JefferyDahmerand Ted...
I actually saw this movie at a theater. As soon as I handed the cashier mymoney, she said two words I had never heard at a theater, before or since:"No refunds!" As soon as I heard those words, I should have just wavedbye-bye to my cash and gone home. But no, foolishly, I went in and watchedthe movi...
Mr. Mike was probably the most misanthropic comedian of all time, so Iwas interested to see what he'd do with total creative control over amovie. Sadly, it is unwatchable, though not because the jokes aren'tfunny--some (I won't say most) of them are, and in fact Mr. Mike did agood job translating hi...
