Pretty dreadful

This seemed like it couldn't miss--a satire on the First Family with Bob Newhart as the President, Madeline Kahn as a drunk First Lady and First Daughter Gilda Radner as a nymphomaniac. And it was written and directed by Buck Henry. Unfortunately this is a shambles. The cast is game and does what it can--but the script isn't funny. The jokes are lame and infantile and, at one point, has everybody in ridiculous costumes for a costume party (like that's supposed to be funny). There are a few good moments here and there (that's why I'm giving it a 2) but mostly the movie just lays there. Towards the end it got almost painful to see this talented cast struggling with a lousy script. It's to everybody's credit that they come through this with their dignity intact. You'll notice Bob Newhart or Buck Henry have never even mentioned this film. That should tell you something. This movie should rightfully be forgotten. A must-miss.

Not even Madeline Kahn and Gilda Radner can save this one!

First Family is a waste of time. It has a couple of funny moments, but thats about it. Buck Henry directs Bob Newhart, Harvey Korman, Rip Torn, Richard Benjamin, Fred Willard, Bob Dishy and two of the funniest ladies who ever lived Gilda Radner and my personal favorite movie actress of comedy Madeline Kahn. Ironically they play mother and daughter and in real life were only 5 years apart in age. Another sad thing is they were also very good friends and died of the same disease ovarian cancer just ten years apart. They deserved to be given a better script worth their extraordinary talents. On Saturday night live they were given better scripts. The only reason to watch this is because its the only film they ever made together. They could and should have been a female comedy team. But this is all we have.

THE worst!

Some of my favorite comedic actors, in possibly the worst movie I have ever seen. Half way through I had to walk out of the theater, to relieve my pain! That is the first and only time I have ever done that in 50 years. I just never hated a movie that much before, or since. Buck Henry is such a smart comedy writer; just don't know what happened here...
