You'll laugh so hard, you'll need a Heimlich maneuver.
8 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

I suggest you don't eat a salami sandwich while you are watching this movie, 'cause you'll need a paramedic to perform the Heimlich maneuver from laughing so hard.

Mike Star is brilliant , and Director John Gallagher expertly slices up some great scenes piled high with one spicy ethnic character after another. Season with the HYSTERICALLY funny David Johansen as the hopped up Cab Driver, and this comedy is cooking with gas.
