A medley of skits parodying news, sports and children’s programmes, drama series and cooking shows, intermixed with fake commercials.
As with most comedy ventures, it is inconsistent, but its scatological scattergun approach means that it does occasionally hit some worthwhile targets – and when it does the film is rewardingly funny.
Aside from Ken Shapiro (who?) – who wrote, produced, directed and took most of the parts in the film – The Groove Tube also stars Chevy Chase and Henry Winkler’s cousin Richard Belzer.
