Dr. Heckle And Mr. Hype: Terrible Movies #62
A monstrous looking podiatrist undergoes a Robert Lewis Stevenson transformation in reverse and comedy ensues, I guess. Oliver Reed mugs in bad make-up and you can actually see what's left of his career at this point completely implode. I realize the plot involves a podiatrist (Don't you remember? I just told you.), but this film seems almost as foot obsessed as Quentin Tarantino. Entirely laugh-free and packed with too many WTF moments to list here. Features lines of dialogue like, "The pucker will pass.", "My mother always said to wash your feet twice a day and see a podiatrist twice a year.", "Nothing to offend the undertaker except maybe a little diarrhea.", and "She's dead and I'm still a virgin.", which seems kind of funny here in print but is oddly not humorous in execution. On Netflix Instant Streaming.
