Format: DVD
From the outset, I had better say, this is not a story with universal appeal. It is a comedy of the old, slapstick style, with prehaps limits for today's sophisticated CGI audiences. That said, it packs a few laughs in between the cringe moments. However, I write this in memory not just of Marty Feldman's Brother Ambrose, but Andy Kaufman's Armageddon T Thunderbird.
This character sends up to perfection those Fundamentalist TV evangelists who cynically prey on whoever listens to their version of the Gospel, but for whoever actually picks up the original, would see their counterparts denounced by Christ and the Apostles.
Two quotes from Armageddon's TV show (as a taster) 'Money can't buy happiness. Only Power can do that!'..'You can fool some of the people some of the time, but some of the people all of the time- and the're the ones we're goin' to get!
More subtlety, I don't think mainstream religion gets off lightly either, I found it very telling when innocent Brother Ambrose, working in a religious knick-knacks business, cries as he nails images of Christ to little wooden crosses. Makes you think, would you want to be remembered that way?
Pity on the whole, this movie is so expensive or hard to get. Is someone out there buying up all available copies? Maybe I've been watching too many conspiracy theories lately...

Absolutely hilarious!! Marty Feldman was a comic genius and this film proves it!! As Brother Ambrose, virginal and innocent, he is let loose upon New York with super funny results. Buy it!!

A satire about televangelists.
The plot is not very tight, but is filled with profanity (ouch!) inventive jokes - and good ones about religion. The cast is put to REALLY good use.
I don't know that many comedies that freely comment on society, apart from John Water's. So many American comedies begin nicely - that is to say badly - , but as soon as a plot kicks in, it all goes back to the good ol' family values. Like "Bad Santa", or more recently "Bad Words"; etc. But this one was shot in the very early 80s, before the return to order which would be initiated by the (REAGAN!) right wing, and completed with the "left wing" politically correct police of speech.
Yep, in those days you could find jokes about incest in family comedies like "vacation", whose rank in rotten tomatoes can only be explained by nostalgy - from people who haven't watched it again since the days, and would ban it if it came out nowadays. Well, it's not funny anyway.
But this one makes good use of the after effect of the subversive cultural movements of earlier years, which for a short period allowed some freedom of speech in Hollywood, as long as it brought money in the bank.

This really should be a cult movie.

Remember the angels.... 11 Mar. 2001
By Chrissy Lynn - Published on Amazon.com
The two men I admire most in this world, thankfully, star together in this film... Mr. Marty Feldman...and the wild and crazy Andy Kaufman... These two are quite a perfect pair, and although we no longer have them with us...we should never forget them, for their humor is perfect like angels! Although Kaufman absoultly takes the film to outragous heights of insanity and greatness, Feldman really rocks this picture! I just discovered this awsome figure of a comedian in "Young Frankenstein" in which his little head and enormous eyes fasinated me beyond anything else in the Mel Brooks spoof. As Ambrose in this film... Marty is the ultimate picture of tender innocence, and it was good to see that the woman he loved could see his sweetness and his radient light in a dark city! So sad to find that we lost such a brilliant man as Feldman... PS. Kaufman is the absolute craziest performer of our time, and if you like his work you'll find this film wonderful! Andy's girl forever,
Chrissy

Accurate satire of hypocritical religious sects 16 Nov. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Marty Feldman's second directorial effort is about the same as THE LAST REMAKE OF BEAU GESTE. The only difference is that he attacks religion in America and comes up with a gem in Andy Kaufman as Armageddon T. Thunderbird, a televangelist. Also well cast is Peter Boyle who plays a down on his luck bus missionary. All in all, this movie is very funny, but has more serious moments in it than other religious parodies like LIFE OF BRIAN. It is definitely worth renting. And remember: "Where there's string cheese, there's sin."

I waited a LONG time for this movie to cme our on video 13 Sept. 2003
By Joseph Stevenson - Published on Amazon.com
This movie will always be special to me. When a I young, I saw it at least 20 times back in the early 80s when we first got cable. It isn't "Citizen Kane", but is IS a great showpiece for the talents of Marty Feldman, Andy Kaufmann, and Richard Prior. And for me, I always love it when someone takes a shot at the evangelical money grubbers.
My only gripe with this video is that for SOME reason, Harry Nilsson's revised rendition of "Good for God" is replaced with some other song, for reasons beyond my comprehension. This bothers me, because I was looking forward to the song the whole time I was watching the film, and you can imagine my dissapointment (and my puzzlement) when it wasn't played. I thought my memory was slipping. However, I have confirmed that for some reason, the song was removed. :-(

More Than Just a Lampoon! 10 Sept. 2000
By Linda Haley - Published on Amazon.com
I was told this movie didn't exist anymore and am thrilled to find it does! Marty Feldman is superb as the innocent monk who encounters all sorts of worldly degeneracy and always comes out ahead. His integrity triumphs over the greed of the televangelists and ultimately his God proves to be redeeming to the truly lost souls like Louise Lasser and Peter Boyle. More than just a lampoon, this movie is uplifting in its ultimate message. Don't hesitate to buy this one!

Perhaps we shouldn't laugh at religion (maybe we should!) 9 Jun. 2004
By Hercule Levande - Published on Amazon.com
My assistant found this movie for $5 at a yard sale, and I was delighted to be able to watch it again after so many years (although I must say I was disappointed that it was on the inferior VHS and not a DVD!).
The writing? Excellent. Marty Feldman has never been afraid to poke fun at society's flaws, and Chris Allen's pen is much sharper here than it was when he wrote episodes of the "Digimon" children's cartoon. The players? Funny. I thought Peter Boyle did a fine job in this film, just as he did playing the grand old savvy "Wizard" in "Taxi Driver." And I've often thought it would be amusing if Richard Pryor was, in fact, God (except for the coccaine).
I tried not to allow my own personal experiences with Feldman cloud my review, (and I cannot say for sure that I have), but I thoroughly recommend this film for anyone stung by the financial shenanigans of televangelists in the 1980s, fans of satirical jousts on society and those who still have VCRs.
