I know with a name like that you'd probably think this is a movie for the Bad movies forum.  But I assure you it is not.  In fact I would say this is one of the funniest movies produced late 80's early 90's

The movie is in the style of an old Marx Brothers films.  The three main characters are telling jokes with every line they say.  The three main characters, Roland T Falkizer, Jacques, and Rocco Meloncheck find themselves running the ballet company created by the late Mr Oglethrope.  Mrs. Oglethrope's laywer lazo is trying to get her money.  But the three Brain Donors won't have it (they were there first) 

Lazo get a renound male ballerina (sp) for the company while Roland, Rocco, and Jacques try to get their guy and his gal to be the stars.  It all ends with a night at the dance that is truely hillarious. 

I want to say more-but I can't becasue these types of movies its best to go in fresh. 

I would say this movie greatly differs from many of the moron comedies that have come before and since.  The three main characters in some strange twisted way are really the three smartest people in the movie.

I recomend this movie if you are looking for a good laugh.

I have to say that this my absolute favourite comedy OF ALL TIME!!!!  This movie rocks the Casbah!

It's the only movie I can watch over and over again and still laugh until I can't breathe.  I credit this movie with helping to break my depression a dozen years ago.

Not so much a remake as a re-imagining of A NIGHT AT THE OPERA.  It's not like they use exactly the same jokes.  Harpo's character has been changed; now he uses elaborate gadgets.  Although I agree it's not as good as the Marx Brothers, I still think it's worth a looking at, unless you just believe this kind of thing is total sacrilege.

I'm a big Marx Brothers fan and I'm not prepared to say that this movie is in the same league of greatness.  However, BRAIN DONORS does have a frantic pace and some very funny moments.  And John Turturro may be one of the most overlooked actors in the business . . .
