Brain Donors

Demented comedy about a Marx Brothers-like trio fulfilling a dead multi-millionaire's dream to start a ballet company. Obviously, the director and screen writer designed this film to have a laugh a minute, but that usually doesn't succeed. Most jokes are bad, rude or tasteless and the plot is completely hideous. Sad to say it, but most of the acting is appalling and so is much of the set. However, there is the sporadic good joke and, to everyone's surprise, the ballet scene at the end is absolutely hilarious! It is surprising that a film that started out so bad can have a five minute splotch of true and inspired lunacy! That part is what makes this film, almost, worthwhile.
